Testing Different Approaches to Energy Reduction in Five 1 1/2 Storey Post-War Houses
The Now House Project, which first retrofit a 1.5 storey post-war house as part of the EQuilibriumTM Housing Demonstration Initiative, is continuing its work by retrofitting additional houses. This research highlights the work done to evaluate five different retrofit strategies on houses of a similar type and vintage in Windsor, Ontario. The five houses were monitored for 12 months following their completion with post-retrofit electricity, gas and water savings reaching a high of 42 per cent, 60 per cent and 63 per cent respectively. The Now House Windsor 5 project demonstrates the benefit of retrofitting older homes.
