Event Description

Please join Phius Alliance Chicago and Illinois Green Alliance for an mid-construction tour of Oak Park's first Phius Retrofit residence. This historic home is being thoroughly refashioned for a young family, with an updated plan, a strong connection to the yard from the kitchen and new mudroom, covered patio, and flexible rooms for work-at-home, gym, or guest functions.

The insulation and mechanical systems are being upgraded to meet the Phius standard, and a solar PV array will be added to meet annual net zero energy performance. With minimal upfront energy expenditure, the home’s operational carbon will be reduced by 100%, and the house will be a delightful place for the young family to grow into.

This project has a projected EUI (energy use intensity) of -4.01 with solar, which is a 108% reduction from code. Without solar, the project has a projected EUI of10.92, which is a 78% reduction from code.

Tour Details:
