The Manitoba government says it has approved changes to the Manitoba Building Code that will result in new homes being nearly 20 per cent more energy efficient without a big increase in costs to buyers.

The changes will take effect on April 1, 2016.

They include new requirements for insulation in above-ground wall assemblies in new homes. The changes will also provide for improved testing of the air tightness of the structure to minimize leakage and subsequent energy loss.

The most significant change will be the requirement of a THERMODRAIN drain-water heat-recovery system to provide additional energy savings and increase the supply of hot water during peak usage times, said Labour and Immigration Minister Erna Braun, adding that Manitoba will be one of the first provinces in Canada to require this energy efficient technology in all new homes.
