Sustainable homeownership. That’s what you’re aiming for when you go green with an energy-efficient mortgage. Guild offers several options for these types of home loans, which help you save money on costs while consciously caring for the planet and your community. Read on to learn about the benefits of these energy-efficient programs and the different options available for you.
What is an energy-efficient mortgage program?
These special mortgage programs create an opportunity for you to bundle the usual upfront costs of certain energy-efficient upgrades or solar panels into your mortgage so that you can spread these costs over the life of the loan. Energy-efficient upgrades can help you reduce utility costs, which helps lower your monthly expenses. This could make your home more affordable in the long run. Whether you’re looking to go green by adding energy-efficient appliances, making smart upgrades or installing solar panels, we have options for you.
