Case Studies of Major Home Energy Retrofits
Five homeowners in Saskatchewan agreed to implement a variety of retrofit energy saving measures, at their expense, as recommended by the HOT2000 computer model. These ranged from simple items such as compact fluorescent lamps to the retrofit of high efficiency furnaces. Total energy consumption reductions ranged from 24% to the target of 40%. Those not meeting the target could be attributed to homeowners not following all the HOT2000 recommendations and lifestyle changes. Payback periods ranged from 8.4 to 16.5 years. All homeowners were satisfied with the savings they achieved.
