Green Building – Energy Efficient – Sustainable Homes in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Pueblo

While sustainable home building is not yet an exact science, there are now distinct classifications and certifications for home construction. Should you choose to pursue an official energy efficiency rating such as Green Certification or LEED Certification, HomeWrights Custom Homes can help you determine appropriate resources and methods to achieve that result with your new green home.

Our extensive experience enables us to help clients sort through the various new methods and tried and true sustainable building options.

HomeWrights Custom Homes Helps You Build Green and Energy Efficient With:

  • Window and door choices and the vast number of options related to frame material, sash and frame construction, glass choices, and even window style and how it impacts energy efficiency
  • Evaluation of advanced framing techniques, or framing alternatives such as Structural Insulated Panels (SIP Construction)
  • Geo-Exchange (aka Geothermal) as an energy source for heating and cooling
  • Photo-Voltaic (solar-electric) energy design and implementation (or, preparation and planning for future add on of solar panels)
  • Solar-thermal energy planning and implementation – using sunlight to provide the energy for heating water used for domestic consumption, or home heating needs
  • Indoor air pollution, and the need for Heat Recovery or Energy Recovery Ventilation for super tight modern construction
  • Insulating, sealing, and ventilating the home to create an energy tight, but not air tight environment
  • Insulation options – inside the shell, outside the shell, and under the shell – what makes the most sense and what delivers the best comfort and most bang-for-the-buck
  • Hydronic (radiant) in floor heating, versus baseboard, versus forced air – effectiveness and efficiency of each
  • Traditional Air Conditioning versus evaporative cooling, versus whole house ventilation, versus planned convective cooling

In short – we’ve seen and done MOST of what modern building science considers new, but we’re smart enough to recognize that energy isolation and generation is a constantly moving target. We also understand the unique challenges of custom home building in the Denver area. And if you want to build green, then call our team.
