"You might consider installing Roxul's acoustic batts, which are not for thermal insulation and provide excellent sound attenuation. (http://www.roxul.com/residential/create+a+quiet+home). We're planning on doing it for our house when we…"

"Bruce - How many therms do you estimate that your gas water used, and how many kWh do you think that your heat pump water heater uses?"

"Thanks, Chie. Our gas use is mainly in our gas furnace. Although it is a 95% AFUE condensing furnace that is right-sized (35,000 BTU/hr versus the previous 100,000 BTU/hr model), we keep the house a comfortable 70 degrees in the winter. The other…"

"Alice, a 30 amp breaker on a seperate 220 volt circuit was required. Fortunately, a previous owner had put in a 220 wiring for a spa with an electrical junction box right at the location of the water heater, so all the installing contractor had to…"

"Our Vaughn HPWH is located in the garage, where the cooling is welcome in the summer when it would otherwise get pretty hot in there. It doesn't seem to make the garage more than a couple of degrees colder in the winter (still stays at 60…"

"Yes, Bruce, please answer the noise question.  I hadn't considered that, and it could be a deal-breaker, since ours is also located in the center of our house.  Did you also have to run a separate circuit (20 AMP?) from your breaker…"

"Wow, Bruce!  The 79% overall reduction is truly impressive, especially since you have children.  I think natural gas reduction is the hardest; everyone loves hot water, and if you have a gas stove, you have no choice for cooking, other…"

"Yes, Bruce, I think that deciding what you will do to conserve yourself, rather than being told (or nagged) makes a huge difference - so I'm not surprised to hear that your table conversation was very motivating.  Now if the kids get…"

Have only very limited data from one project.  For 3 months, electric use is about 20Jean%20May-July%202011%20Electricity%20Use.docx% more than predicted and 38% less than estimated pre-retrofit.  However, it's been a very mild summer. see attached.
