Discover the sequence, details, costs, and ROI of the Healthy Home Habitats house’s energy efficiency renovations.
This four-bedroom, two-bathroom house had been rented to students for many, many decades. It used 700 gallons of heating oil each winter as many New England homes do. It had antiquated electric and water services. For my daughter and I, it would be wasteful and unsafe as it was. I acquired the house and promptly turned it into a crazy-energy efficient duplex that now generates rental income. Our 2/3 of the structure now uses 1/2 – 3/4 of a tank of oil annually with a monthly $13.81 Eversource Net Metering Connection charge for 80-90% of our heating as well as the house’s regular electricity usage.
