The Bonded Builders Residential Energy Guarantee® is an exclusive new program, available to builders who construct and certify their homes to energy-efficient industry standards.
We believe in the rating systems and their benefits to homeowners, so much that the program covers the additional cost of natural gas and electric utilities, should utilities exceed the guaranteed energy usage of a HERS®-rated new home enrolled in the program.
At the end of the year, if the homebuyer's utility usage exceeds the Annual Energy Guarantee Level for natural gas and electric usage by more than 15%, Bonded Builders will reimburse the homeowner for the difference.
As the builder, the only requirement is that you certify your home as energy-efficient through an industry-standard program such as HERS®, Energy Star®, LEED or National Green Building Standard™, and purchase a Residential Energy Guarantee for your home, just as you would purchase a new home warranty. It's that easy! When the home closing occurs, Bonded Builders will handle all of the administrative work, ensuring that the homebuyer receives everything they need to verify their costs and, if necessary, receive reimbursement.
