Largest Texas builder to guarantee energy efficient homes
Bonded Builders Warranty Group (BBWG) announced today that Megatel Homes, the giant Texas-based custom home builder, has agreed to guarantee the energy efficiency of its new homes by providing the patent-pending Residential Energy Guarantee from BBWG.
Megatel, which operates in Texas and Oklahoma, plans to build more than 1,300 new homes this year, and to offer this breakthrough energy guarantee to their buyers. The program reimburses homeowners if power and natural gas usage exceed the projected amount for these homes by 15% or more, based on the industry-standard HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score.
The BBWG Residential Energy Guarantee program covers not only heating and cooling, but also all power usage throughout the rated new home. This first-of-its-kind program for new homes is the only national program which guarantees energy usage of the entire home based on standards set by the Residential Energy Service Network (RESNET). RESNET is the building industry’s leader for rating the energy efficiency of new homes.
Bonded Builders Warranty Group is the largest independent new home warranty company in the United States.
“We are thrilled that Megatel, a recognized industry leader in new home construction, has selected our Residential Energy Guarantee program to provide to all of its new home customers,” said Ken Podlin, BBWG National Sales Manager. “This program provides guaranteed peace of mind to homeowners, insuring that their new homes live up to stated energy efficiency ratings – something that truly differentiates Megatel homes in the marketplace,” he added.
