A retrofit is an upgrade of the energy performance of an existing building. It most often involves making the building more airtight, adding exterior insulation, triple pane windows and a mechanical ventilation system. Besides the energy savings, a retrofit also increases the comfort of the building, increases the healthfulness of the building, and it makes it more resilient. The ideal time to do a retrofit is when exterior components like windows, roof and siding need to be replaced anyway.
