GERANIUM MAKES WATER AND ENERGY SAVING A PRIORITY

GERANIUM MAKES WATER AND ENERGY SAVING A PRIORITY

Geranium is pleased to announce that Edgewood in West Pickering is the first community in Canada to include a greywater recycling system, built by Greyter in each home.

At Edgewood, homeowners will enjoy built-in energy and water savings, saving homeowners!

Edgewood is a unique detached home community with residences that provide three fully-finished floors, offering lower level walkouts to rear yards.  The 21 residences are enrolled in “Savings by Design” an Enbridge program that was developed to help builders improve energy and environmental performance in new construction projects. In addition, each home will include a complete greywater recycling system, reducing annual water use by approximately 20 per cent.

The objective of the “Savings by Design” initiative is to construct residential homes that exceed the 2017 Ontario Building Code’s energy performance requirements by 15 per cent. To achieve this, Geranium is including several energy features at Edgewood, such as: radiant in-floor heating in the lower level finished areas, a high-efficiency, Energy Star® qualified forced air gas furnace with energy recovery ventilator, and much more.

Geranium is the first builder in Canada to include a greywater recycling system into the construction of an entire community. Each Edgewood home comes complete with a Greyter HOME™ water recycling system at no extra charge. In addition to the water conservation benefits, this results in a reduction of approximately 20 per cent on the homeowners’ annual water bill and, for a family of four, saving up to 30,000 litres of water in one year – an amount of water that could fill a 16 ft. x 32 ft. rectangular swimming pool.
