Case Study: Saving Money and Energy

Before the Assessment:Home Retrofit project program

The homeowners "wanted to save energy, and right now there are a lot of rebates and we wanted to take advantage of those." There were a few improvements they wanted to do for their house anyway, and the rebates would make it affordable for them.

The retrofit:

New insulation in the attic, new ducting for the air conditioning.

After the retrofit:

"We have a loft area in the back of our house that gets really hot when it's warm out and the old air condition system couldn't keep it cool. It seems like it's doing better as far as being comfortable in the afternoons and evenings."
