We underwent a Deep Energy Retrofit in 2010-2011. Main components of the project were putting the attic and basement outside the thermal envelope, blown in cellulose insulation, efficient hydronic heat and historic window restoration rather than replacement.
Desire to improve air quality and energy efficiency, and the rebate from the utility company.
Open House Info:

You'll learn how to avoid spending tens of thousands of dollars on replacement windows while significantly increasing energy efficiency. Visitors will receive a detailed handout documenting our project, including budget details.
