Teaching an Old House New Tricks – 1895 Home Retrofit

Energy Retrofit

Before the audit:

This two-story, 2,200–square-foot house on a raised foundation had a mixture of new and original features: wood siding; wood single- and double-paned windows; lathe and plaster walls as well as drywall; knob and tube wiring in the attic; package heater and A/C units on the first and second floors; and floor supply ducts/vents downstairs with ceiling supply ducts/vents upstairs. The homeowners complained that their kitchen had no supply duct and was hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It was hard to heat and cool the upstairs areas, and that the upstairs bathroom and dressing room had no supply ducts.
