Save Money on Your Mortgage
Buyers will experience savings as soon as they purchase a home at Winsome Hill because certified BUILT GREEN® homes are eligible for a number of mortgage-related discounts, rebates and refunds.
Potential BUILT GREEN® homebuyer benefits include a 10% CMHC mortgage loan insurance premium refund, and a premium refund for a longer amortization period (if applicable) may be available when you use CMHC insured financing to purchase an energy-efficient home. Visit the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) website for more information.
Save Money on Your Monthly Energy Costs
The Gold level of BUILT GREEN® certification is awarded based on a number of components, the most important being a high EnerGuide rating, which means these homes are nearly airtight and extremely efficient, so heating, cooling and other utilities costs will be minimized. The indoor air quality of your home at Winsome Hill will be healthier for your family and you will save money on energy costs every month.
In addition to a high EnerGuide rating there are a number of other criteria that must be met, such as using approved materials; management and recycling of waste; operational systems; water conservation practices; and general business practices of the builder.
