Preservation Workshop | Energy Efficiency in Historic Homes
Learn about Efficiency in Historic Houses
Historic Columbia’s 2017 Preservation Workshop series, presented by Crawlspace Medic, will kick off on Saturday, March 4 with hands-on techniques that homeowners can use to increase the energy efficiency of their historic homes. The workshop will feature a whole-house energy audit, including a blower door test. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how equipment is assembled and used and will walk through the audit with featured climate control professionals. The workshop will also explore solutions to several problems usually found when doing an energy audit of a historic home or building, including some of the DIY items that an average homeowner or renter can tackle in order to reduce monthly energy costs.
The workshop will be led by Sean Stucker, director of facilities for Historic Columbia, and will be held at the historic Modjeska Monteith Simkins House. It will also feature guest speaker Todd Wagstaff, President and owner of Comfort Services, a BPI certified HVAC contractor. Light refreshments will be provided. The workshop is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Space is limited.
