Technical specifications for heat/energy recovery ventilators (HRVs and ERVs), and fenestration products (windows, doors and skylights) are developed in Canada and are available on ENERGY STAR Canada’s website in both official languages.

Check our Canadian list of ENERGY STAR certified product categories to verify if a product type is eligible for ENERGY STAR certification. The list of eligible products in Canada and the United States is almost identical. There are, however, a few exceptions related to our different climates.

Note: Compliance with ENERGY STAR technical specifications does not imply compliance with any other applicable legal, code or regulatory requirements. Many ENERGY STAR eligible products are also subject to Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations. A link to the Regulations for each product is provided where applicable.
