The Energy Saving HouseBook - 2003
Save money -- and save the planet! This informative and practical guide will show you how. Packed with facts and figures, The Energy Saving House covers every aspect of home energy use: from designing and building, through choice of materials, proper insulation, heating options, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, water consumption and heating, super windows, renovation and retrofitting, to choosing household appliances and fuel suppliers. Throughout, it emphasizes the benefits of 'negawatts' -- the energy you don't use -- and shows how you can retain the comforts of life, yet save 60% of your energy and water use.
