Client: Abbott & Co. General Contractors

Location: Charlottesville, VA

Abbot & Co. demonstrated that Victorian architecture and design could be kept intact while making a highly energy efficient home. The 2,400 square foot home enjoys a grid tied 5.25 KW solar panel amendment, closed cell foam roof insulation, blown cellulose walls throughout, new technology heat pump style hot water heater, and extremely low duct leakage. As a result, this infill Charlottesville home boasts a HERS 30 index, meaning that it is 70% more efficient than a standard new home on the market today
