Pasadena is a treasure trove of hundreds of historic properties, designed by the likes of Greene and Greene, Wallace Neff and Reginald Johnson. But with little or no insulation and drafty doors and windows, vintage homes are often hot in summer and chilly in winter, which can lead to higher energy bills.
