WARTIME IN RITCHIE
Stuart and his wife, Meg, embarked on a deep energy retrofit project, encompassing the complete renewal of a modest 1943 mature neighborhood wartime home into a healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient home. We performed most of the work ourselves, with support from our industry peers. We achieved an 80% reduction in energy consumption through exterior super-insulation and airtightness (0.7ACH@50Pa), as well as new highly efficient HVAC systems.
