In a town dotted with historic landmarks, including Thomas Jefferson’s own Monticello, living in an older home can be a source of pride. But it can also have its drawbacks: lots of cracks and leaks for air to move through, older heating and cooling equipment, single pane windows, and substandard insulation.
Whether you live in a house deemed “historic” in nature, a house situated in a designated “historic neighborhood,” or just simply an older home, there are key energy and water efficiency upgrades that will improve the comfort and affordability of your home without compromising its unique character.
Join this panel of experts at a free workshop to learn tips on how to make your older home look, feel and act new — plus get a tour of ecoREMOD: The Energy House to see many of these strategies in action.
