WARTIME IN RITCHIE

Stuart and Meg undertook a deep energy retrofit project encompassing the complete renewal of a modest 1943 wartime home in Edmonton’s Ritchie community. Performing most of the work themselves, they transformed the knock-down ready residence into a healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient home.

The project achieved an 80% reduction in energy consumption through exterior super-insulation and airtightness (0.7ACH@50Pa), as well as new highly efficient HVAC systems.
