February 28th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

GreenPointe Homes, award-winning homebuilder in the north Jacksonville community of Cedar Bay, has committed to responsible building practices and developed an Intelligent Green program that has won favor with homeowners.

The Intelligent Green program is implemented in all GreenPointe Homes so that residents would have added value where energy efficiency and indoor air quality in their homes are concerned. GreenPointe Homes’ approach to green building places an emphasis on technologies that directly affect the cost of total home ownership as well as construction products and processes that lend sustainability to building homes. Some of these technologies include:

  • Radiant barrier roof sheathing, which considerably lowers solar heat gain into the homes, is installed in the attic to lower attic temperatures and reduce strain on air conditioning equipment.
  • Kitchens and bathrooms are equipped with water-saving dishwaters, toilets and plumbing fixtures.
  •  Low-E Windows are designed specifically for the geographical area in which the home is built in order to maintain heat in the home during the winter and cool the home during the summer.
  • Advanced techniques to ensure an infiltration-free building are also included in all homes.
  • Programmable thermostat to save energy by allowing multiple time and temperature settings.
  • Advanced framing techniques result in tighter construction and reduced thermal bridging, allowing greater benefits from property installed insulation.
  • Air pressure balancing incorporated into each home, providing balanced pressure from room to room resulting in better circulation of air and more even temperatures throughout the homes.

Cedar Bay is a 153-home community convenient to River City Marketplace, Jacksonville International Airport and minutes from downtown Jacksonville. The Cedar Bay Community Park offers the perfect place for get-togethers, family outings and celebrations with amenities such as community grills, tables and benches that overlook the Broward River, a shade structure and playground equipment for children.  Residents will also enjoy numerous natural amenities as well as a convenient location close to the city’s major employers and nearby shopping and dining opportunities.
