what would happen if I took all this effort and infrastructure and made the dwelling more efficient???
but most will take the path of least resistance
Cost to insulate this Victorian leakbox to a reasonable standard... about $200,000. Let's assume I drop heating costs 50%
Cost of money 4% (HA) so annual borrowing ... cost $8000 per year
Coal $180 a ton so I get ahead after I burn 44 tons (really 88 tons as I have only dropped cost 50%)
Sting, I'm burning the stuff as fast as I can and I have insulators telephone numbers ready to go. I am short 72 tons by my pessimistic projections but I am trying as hard as I can....
