We Audit Historic Homes featured image

While homes built nearly a century ago may be sturdier and arguably more stylish than modern ones, they are also much harder to stay comfortable in. That’s not surprising, given that they were built before insulation, central air conditioning, and building science as we know it, and when the primary way of staying warm was a fireplace or a woodstove. Luckily, EDGE Energy has experience auditing and servicing classic homes that always them to keep both their nostalgic look as well as letting their owners keep their energy bills down.

Older homes have a lot of room for potential as they are almost guaranteed to have little to no insulation in the attic and walls. We specialize in insulating spaces, through a variety of means, whether by installing batts, using sprayfoam or dense-packing cellulose. We also make sure that the attic space is properly vented as the attics in most houses that are nearly 100 years old were not.

Other weatherization tactics used would include weatherstripping, caulking around windows, general air-sealing using spray-foam, as well as replacement of antiquated heating and cooling equipment with more efficient ones. If you have considered doing restoration on your historic home and want to lower your energy costs and increase your comfort, contact us today!
