The slides from a presentation by Dr. William Hill of the Department of Urban Planning at Ball State University at a community workshop on 11/21/2002. The slides include the results of research Dr. Hill conducted on the real world performance of different energy efficiency measures, including replacing windows and furnaces. The 1990 study that describes those results in detail is also available at Scribd, including in the Historic Preservation group.

Reducing Your Heating Bills
A Community Workshop
Presented by
William W. Hill, Ph.D.
Department of Urban PlanningBall State UniversitySponsored by the Community Outreach PartnershipCenter and East Central Reinvestment Corporation November 21, 2002
Workshop overview
Where this information comes fromHow air moves in housesMisaligned thermal and pressure barriersKey juncturesDense pack insulation
What’s the conventionalwisdom?What are the things youhaveheard one should do to reduceheating bills?
 
Convention wisdom says...
Caulk and weather-strip cracksInstall replacement windowsInsulate the atticInstall heavy drapes on windows
Our recommendations
Seal the big air leaks at the top and bottom of the housePay special attention to “key junctures”Insulate only after sealing air leaksBring the ducts insideSeal crawl space vents
How we’ve come to this newunderstanding of how buildings work 
1.Evaluation of actual energy savings inweatherization programs, which showed verysmall savings2.New diagnostic tools such as blower doorsand digital pressure gauges3.Building Science out of Canadian researchlabs4.Crews working in the DOE-funded Low-Income Weatherization Program

Good weatherization agencies typicallyachieve average energy savings of about 25%
This might help a little, but thereare better ways to save energy
Savings from Indiana ECFAP. Note lack of savings from replacement windows
