Live smart. Live well. Live green.
At River Oaks Homes we build green sustainable homes with the whole home in mind. Homes that use energy wisely, reduce your home’s eco footprint, minimize water consumption and help you breathe easier. It’s the good life.
Building green sustainable homes requires measures to reduce energy use and increase the efficiency of the building envelope – which adds up to savings on your utility bills. Our homes include high-efficiency Carrier 16-SEER air conditioning systems with environmentally-sound refrigerant, low-E3 glass windows. Multi-stage polysealant is used to prevent air infiltration. HONEYWELL® TH6220D programmable thermostats help maintain the temperature of your home. CFL (compact fluorescent lighting) throughout the home reduces energy usage. Odorless green foam insulation eliminates drafts, adds structural strength, controls air infiltration, resists mildew and fungus and offers high R-Values.
We make a commitment to seek out eco-friendly products and materials whenever possible to help reduce your home’s carbon footprint. During the construction phase, the use of engineered wood products and advanced framing techniques reduce the amount of material going to landfills by controlling construction waste and lowering waste water production.
Reducing water consumption and protecting water quality are key objectives in sustainable building. Central Texas drought tolerant plantings add to the overall home’s curb appeal and conserve water. Sterling Rockton elongated dual-flush commodes, Hunter programmable sprinkler controllers, and Moen EVA Fixtures with water conserving aerators – all help to reduce your home’s water usage.
Sealing holes and cracks in the home’s envelope and in heating and cooling duct systems helps reduce drafts, moisture, dust and pollen. A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility and maintenance. Odorless green foam insulation contains no urea formaldehyde — no offgassing. We use low VOC paints that reduce pollutants and increase air quality so that you can breathe easier.
