Home Retrofit Work Minimizes Drafts, Moisture Issues and Gives Heat Pump a Rest

the problems

Built in 1950, this 3400 square foot brick-veneer home presented several heating challenges during winter months. The family room was cold, the front entryway was drafty and the heat pump ran constantly. A geothermal system was installed by a previous owner which worked well in the spring, summer and fall seasons, but expensive electric backup heat was over used during the winter.
