TORONTO, ON, Nov. 25, 2022 /CNW/ - What defines a well-appointed modern, luxury home? It extends beyond spacious, well-designed and elegant interiors. It's more than bespoke finishes and attention to fine detail. And it requires more than a highly coveted address. It extends beyond "wired" or "smart" technology, integrated security, sound, lighting and entertainment systems or other trendy app-enabled options. It's more than custom, recreational features such as infinity pools, recording studios, theatres, ice rinks and basketball courts.

The definition of a modern, luxury home is evolving. Today's more savvy high-end homeowners and purchasers are influenced and inspired by the world around them. Thus, their wish lists include a few, newer musts-haves. They still want all the tony elements that have been perennially sought-after, but they also want to do it better than generations past. They want modern, luxury homes that are future-proofed, more sustainable, and that simultaneously address traditional form with cutting-edge function. In the same vein as "it" brands like Tesla that defy convention, the most progressive are also the most impressive— designed for the future in a way that considers the planet, particularly from a systems and operational perspective. Importantly, these modern, luxury homes sport a smaller operational footprint, while maximizing sophistication and lifestyle. They also integrate additional sustainable solutions, with passive or active features that contribute to occupant health and wellbeing.

Fast Facts:
  • Home heating is one of the largest sources of residential greenhouse gas emissions in Canada.
  • Geothermal technology can now be found in five per cent of new condominiums in the province, up over 100 per cent in the past five years. *
  • The Ontario Geothermal Association is reporting a rapid uptake of GeoExchange systems for high rise residential, commercial/campus applications, and more recently single-family community developments. *
  • Some of the country's most recognized builders and developers, including Mattamy Homes, Minto Communities, Tridel Corporation and a variety of smaller developers are turning to geothermal networks to heat and cool their new housing developments.
  • The Canada Greener Homes Grant is providing great momentum for retrofit/replacement of existing fossil fuel furnaces in existing single-family homes as well.
  • Noting all of that, there is lots of room for growth for the Geothermal industry in Ontario/Canada, as policymakers notice that the technology will play a pivotal role in helping solve some of the challenges of broad scale electrification. *
  • Buyers are shifting toward net-zero technologies, realizing that "the cheapest energy is that which you don't use."
