Homes Built for the Future: A Closer Look at Our Energy-Efficient Practices

October 19, 2022

At Riverside Homebuilders, we take pride in building incredible new-construction homes throughout the best areas in DFW with endless benefits for our buyers—and energy efficiency is one of our top priorities. Our ENERGY STAR-certified homes are built with the highest quality features in the industry, with conscious practices and forward-thinking materials implemented to not only save homeowners money on energy costs—but to also minimize a home's impact on the environment and give our homeowners peace of mind.

Riverside Homebuilders is constantly striving toward a more eco-friendly way of building and designing our homes, and we’re here to share our energy-efficient processes and ideas with our valued customers—so read on to find out more about what we’re doing to maximize energy efficiency in all of our homes.

Smart structures

At Riverside Homebuilders, we embrace cutting-edge technology and practices throughout our building process, and we’re proud to include multiple energy-efficient components in every single home we build. There are many steps to take when it comes to maximizing energy efficiency, and we’re dedicated to taking every step we need to in order to build some of the most environmentally-friendly homes on the market to not only benefit the environment—but your wallet as well. 

Our innovative features start with the overall structures and systems of our homes, including our wonderful HVAC systems, which are engineered per plan to significantly reduce energy consumption—as well as advanced foam encapsulation throughout the exterior walls and roof decking to help control air and moisture while keeping heating and cooling costs down. In addition to full foam encapsulation, we take extra measures to seal in air and help provide a constant thermal break and lock in heating and cooling—including integrity gasket, caulk and poly seal. Are homes are fully sheeted—even behind siding—and our externally vented range hoods are specifically designed to improve air quality in your home. Our 14- to 16-SEER heat pumps work to eliminate uneven temperatures and provide greater humidity control in order to let your heat pump operate at lower, more efficient speeds.

Smart features

At Riverside Homebuilders, our energy-efficient features go beyond the structures of our homes—and we’re proud to include an array of forward-thinking appliances and materials that help our homeowners save money and energy. Our use of Low-E (low emissivity) windows can reduce energy costs by up to 15% by both insulating and reflecting heat back to its source—and our LED Bulbs use up to 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than traditional light bulbs. Our programmable thermostats accurately control temperatures to reduce wasted cooling or heating capacity, and our ENERGY STAR appliances allow for maximum energy conservation and high functionality. These incredible eco-friendly features mark just the beginning of our energy-efficient practices at Riverside Homebuilders, and going green is something we’ll always value in all our carefully-crafted homes.

Smart investments

At Riverside Homebuilders, our energy efficiency goes beyond what occurs inside the home. In addition to high-quality development, our homes use advanced technology that’s engineered to use significantly fewer resources. Buying new from Riverside Homebuilders guarantees immediate returns on your investments, in other words—your home is cash flow positive from day one due to the money you’ll save on typical utilities. Energystar.gov estimates that the typical household can save at least 20% on utility bills with energy efficiency measures—and we’re looking to increase that statistic even more. It begins with our major components, from HVAC systems and full foam encapsulation to 14- to 16-SEER heat pumps and externally vented range hoods—all the way down to the smaller details, like our Low-E windows, ENERGY STAR appliances and programmable thermostats. Choosing Riverside Homebuilders means that your beautiful, earth-friendly forever home is beneficial for not only the environment and the future of our planet, but your financial future as well.

Homes built for the future

At Riverside Homebuilders, we’re always working towards a way to reduce our carbon footprint, and we can’t wait to continue developing remarkable homes that are conscious of our resources and environment. Our ENERGY STAR-certified homes are built to a higher standard so families of all shapes and sizes across DFW can create memories that truly last a lifetime in a home that’s built with the future in mind.
