Measured Results of Phased Shallow and Deep Retrofits in Existing Homes
Residential; Buildings; Retrofits; Energy Efficiency
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building America program, in collaboration with Florida Power & Light (FPL), is pursuing a phased residential energy-efficiency retrofit program in Florida. This research is to establish annual energy and peak energy reductions from the technologies of two levels of retrofit--shallow and deep, with savings levels at the high end expected to reduce whole-house energy use by 40%. The Phased Deep Retrofit (PDR) project, has installed energy-efficiency retrofits in a sample of 60 existing, all electric homes. Energy end-use savings and economic evaluation results from the phased measure packages and single measures are summarized along with lessons learned.This paper published in the Proceedings of the 2014 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings, http://www.aceee.org.
