Retrofit is simply the process of making changes to existing buildings, so that energy consumption and emissions are reduced.  These changes should also provide the benefit of a more comfortable and healthier home with lower energy consumption, which also mean lower bills. 

It is not the same as renovation or refurbishment, which means upgrading a house but not necessarily reducing its energy use.
