To the extent that they don’t interfere with the building’s historical significance and beauty, yes. Replacing old electrical and water systems with more efficient and up to date ones are some things people could do.
Building preservationists and green-building advocates actually both agree they should. Many older buildings are actually very green. Older buildings utilized sunlight to trap heat better, had floor plans to maximize air flow, and used old-growth wood in windows which is more durable and better at containing heat. Refurbishing older homes is a lot better for the environment than tearing them down, and usually the old ones just need adjustments such as insulation and modern heating and cooling systems.
