The Fix household embarked on a deep energy retrofit project, which encompassed the complete renewal of a modest 1943 mature neighbourhood wartime home in Edmonton into a healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient home. We targeted an 80% reduction in energy consumption through exterior super-insulation and improved airtightness, as well as new highly efficient HVAC systems. We achieved a 90% reduction, and a tremendous [email protected] airtightness. We followed Harold Orr's basic chainsaw retrofit approach for the exterior; tried, tested, & proven!
