Gary Nelson (Founder of The Energy Conservatory) will discuss two renovation projects he has completed updating his Minneapolis home. He will share what upgrades were made and how he expected them to change the performance of his 1907 home. He will also share some data to explain how his home is performing now, both good and bad.
Bill Spohn's head has been wrapped up in building and HVAC performance since the late 1980s. How does he sort through bringing his personal vision for his own home to reality? What’s it like actually living inside your theories? Bill Spohn describes the journey he and Marilyn have taken setting out to build a high performance, likely NetZero, home.
By attending this session, attendees will:
Learn considerations of a renovation project
Understand the priorities Bill and Gary used in making design, renovation, and construction decisions
Understand key measurements to quantify performance
