Steps to Sustainability
  • IDENTIFY green and historically significant aspects of your home
  • PROTECT your home’s historical qualities while enhancing energy-efficiency
  • REPAIR parts of your home in order to make it more environmentally sustainable without compromising its historical character
  • REPLACE items with new, energy-efficient systems and appliances and assure that installation will not damage historic details.

It is important to consider the least intrusive methods before resorting to more intensive measures that may compromise your home’s historical integrity. Simple additions and on-going maintenance can increase energy-efficiency just as well as the large-scale, wholesale replacements that will damage your home’s authenticity.
