Coventry Homes, Plantation Homes Kick Off ‘Beat The Heat’ Promotion

Coventry Homes and Plantation Homes are offering a hot incentive that will have home buyers chilling over electricity payments for two years.

Through the “Beat the Heat” sales event, Coventry Homes and Plantation Homes — part of McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc. (MHI) — will prepay two years’ worth of electricity bills for people buying a home May 13 through June 30. The Beat the Heat incentive is valid for all of the builders’ Houston-area communities and for buyers utilizing Coventry Homes’ Build On Your Lot program.

James Miller, MHI region president, says the “Beat the Heat” promotion is a perfect complement to the company’s focus on energy efficiency.

“Not only will buyers not sweat over electric payments for their first two years in their homes, but they will also continue to see energy savings even beyond the two-year promotional period as all of our homes in Houston are built ‘Eco Smart’ and meet the platinum level standards of the Environments for Living program,” he said.

On average, buyers can expect their new Coventry or Plantation home to be nearly 50 percent more energy efficient than homes built in 2000 and 15 percent more efficient than homes built only to Energy Star mandates.

Homes by MHI can be found in more than 40 Houston-area locations near employment centers and popular shopping and entertainment destinations. Coventry Homes builds homes priced from the $300,000s to more than $1 million in more than 25 planned developments. Plantation Homes is active in more than 20 Houston-area communities, with prices from the $200,000s.

Parent company MHI has been building homes in Texas for more than 25 years, and offers designs in Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio, in addition to Houston. For more information on Coventry Homes, visit Details about Plantation Homes are available at
