Its the right thing to do

As a energy retrofitter I can't tell you how many older house that we have upgraded just to get to minimum standards. Lets not do what our parents did, and be responsible to future generations, by conserving their resources and pass on houses that are responsible to energy usage.  The upgrades that are proposed really do not add that much cost considering the long term savings. We are rethinking the way we build from the ground up.
