A version of this article appears in the July/August 2013 issue of Home Energy Magazine.
July 01, 2013
This is the last article in a series of three that have summarized the design, construction, and performance of ten Northern California deep energy retrofits (DERs) that have been monitored by Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL). In the prior two articles, the projects were identified as either remodels or retrofits, depending on the extent of the intervention and aesthetic changes. The first article (“Deep Energy Retrofit X10,” HE May/June ’12, p. 38) summarized the remodels. The second article (“Deep Energy Retrofit: Part 2,” HE Mar/Apr ’13, p. 36) summarized the retrofits. Both articles provided very basic summaries of annual post-retrofit energy use. In this article, we will briefly review all the projects. We will then present detailed results of the monitoring, and key findings of this research and offer a list of recommendations.
