Today, Owens Corning, a leading global producer of residential and commercial building materials,
announced the launch of their ComfortCertified™ Program designed to help builders build above code
and to deliver energy efficient and affordable homes in Canada built with sustainability in mind.
Today’s home buyers expect more. Owens Corning turns building science into building genius to help
builders build more energy efficient†, comfortable and sustainable homes that are affordable. “We are
excited to combine our expertise with forward thinking builders across Canada to help them along their
path towards building net zero homes and communities across Canada,” said Salvatore Ciarlo, Technical
Manager at Owens Corning Canada. The program is a great segue towards achieving additional certifications
such as Energy Star, Net Zero Ready or Net Zero labels.
The Owens Corning ComfortCertified™ Program is a 2-tier “Home Buyer Certification Program” with minimum
performance targets verified through third-party energy modeling and on site blower door testing for instant
homebuyer credibility. Once the program standards are met and the third party certification is approved the
home receives an Owens Corning ComfortCertified™ label. One of two labels depending on the criteria met:
ComfortCertified™ certification which reduces heating and cooling energy use by 25%* or ComfortCertified™
Net Zero Energy Ready which reduces heating and cooling energy use by 50%*.
This is the first program of its kind to be offered by an insulation manufacturer. Owens Corning
is committed to help reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. The ComfortCertified™ program
will help provide Canadians with comfortable, durable and affordable energy efficient homes that will
save energy year over year.
