Energy Efficient Homes

Today, value in a home is about much more than just square footage for the dollar. The average utilities cost, impact on your quality of life, and impact on the environment are all very important factors that discerning homebuyers have become very familiar with. Riverside Homebuilders is committed to building homes that are efficient, healthy, and clean. We use the latest technologies, designs, and methods to ensure that you are getting the absolute maximum from your home.

Here are just a few of the techniques and technologies we use in our new home builds:

  1. Full foam encapsulation, exterior walls and underside of the roof decking
  2. In addition to full foam encapsulation, added air sealing of house envelope to include: integrity gasket, caulk and poly seal
  3. Programmable thermostats that accurately control the temperature, reducing wasted cooling or heating capacity
  4. 14 SEER heat pumps with variable speed air handler and mechanical fresh air damper in foam encapsulated homes (Upgraded SEER rating in certain communities)
  5. HVAC equipment and ductwork housed in indirectly conditioned attic space (Foam encapsulated homes). This allows for unit to work in a much more efficient capacity
  6. Vinyl windows with Low E 366 glazing
  7. Majority of light fixtures to include compact fluorescent or LED bulbs
  8. Homes are fully sheeted, even behind siding
  9. Energy Star Compliant appliances where applicable
  10. Externally vented range hoods

While we aim to reduce the impact on your wallet, we are also focusing on ways to minimize your home’s impact to the environment. Each product we use is hand-picked to leave the smallest carbon footprint and pose the least risk to the environment. We use local vendors whenever possible not just to improve the local economy, but to reduce the impact of shipping the materials. The health of your community is one of the most valuable assets it has, and we strive to keep it as good as it possibly can be.
