Historic buildings can be energy efficient. Per square foot, historic commercial properties rank among the best in terms of energy consumption. However, there is always room to improve a building’s energy performance.

Weatherizing or otherwise improving the energy efficiency of historic buildings should be undertaken carefully to preserve a building’s historic character. Because energy retrofitting is continuously evolving, products or solutions that are popular today may fall out of favor in the future. So it is important to select products and treatments that are reversible and do not require major structural or material changes.
