Home Building Innovation and Energy Efficiency

Riverfront Builders is utilizing the latest home building techniques and systems to build innovative and energy efficient homes. We use improved home design and site layout to produce better ventilation, tighter construction, efficient water utilization, radiant heating and reduced energy consumption.

By managing the sun's radiant energy you can reduce your heating costs in the winter, and cooling in the summer. In addition, using solar technology can generate household electricity, allow radiant heating and cooling systems, and provide all of your hot water needs. Wind energy can be viable source of electricity in certain locations as well. Geothermal heat pump systems are able to use the constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool your home, while significantly reducing your monthly energy bills. Low-e glass and window tinting can significantly reduce the impact of the summer sun on your electric bill as well.

Using building materials such as spray foam insulation and insulated concrete forms reduces energy costs by eliminating air gaps and leaks, provides termite protection, and produces greater structural integrity for a stronger house. Choosing environmentally-friendly products results in better indoor air quality by using natural materials, rather than manufactured ones that emit harmful gases inside your home over time. Being renewal natural resources they will help to reduce our dependence on petroleum-based products, and also contribute to the local economy.

The net result for "Going Green" has a real world impact - substantial energy savings, increased water efficiency, improved indoor air quality and less environmental impact. You will save money each month on your utility bills, and be able to breathe easier knowing that you are doing something that is good for yourself, as well as our environment.
