SPECIAL INFORMATION

An integrated approach was applied to renovate this 1979 home for reduced energy usage and generation of energy from renewable resources. A geothermal heat pump for heating and cooling is powered electrically from a solar panel installation. Weatherization and insulation of the home ensures the most efficient use of heating and cooling energy. Finally, minor lighting and appliance changes round out the renovation by further reducing energy requirements.
