Modern building science has taught us how to build a new house that uses up to 95 percent less fuel for heating, so people who build a house in the old fashioned way have only themselves to blame. But what about the rest of us who live in older homes? How can we cut our home’s energy consumption for the least investment? How can we be sure that tightening a leaky house does not lead to unsafe or unhealthy conditions or even damage the house? What should we do first and what should we avoid doing?

These two hour workshops, presented by Paul Kando of the Midcoast Green Collaborative, review the basic workings of a house as an energy system, and ways to improve the energy efficiency of a home. We also get acquainted with a home energy audit. Your questions are encouraged throughout and following the presentations.

Paul Kando, a retired engineer, has been active in building and energy research in the United States and Europe for over 30 years. He conducted his first energy audit in 1976. In “retirement” he works as an educator, conducts professional energy audits and writes a weekly newspaper column on energy-related issues.
