Re-Energizing an Old Cottage!

Spurred by the recent rebate incentives we have just completed an energy retrofit, along with structural and aesthetic renovations, to a quaint 1920’s cottage. 

This included replacing an old oil furnace with a super-efficient air source heat pump, trading an inefficient wood burning fireplace for a low emission wood stove and updating plumbing fixtures, as well as adding insulation to previously uninsulated exterior walls and crawlspace.

Not only did this work improve the Energuide rating from an incredible low of 31 to a very respectable 77, it will provide the homeowners with a warm, comfortable home, on-going energy bill savings, and netted them some cash in their pockets.
