Review:

Alex Wilson and John Morrill have assembled a comprehensive guide to energy-saving techniques and devices with two goals in mind: save consumers money and save Earth in the process. Wilson and Morrill offer consumers the latest techniques for making their homes more efficient, comfortable, and cheaper to live in, and they supply energy ratings for appliances, light bulbs, water heaters, windows, heating systems, and more. The language is clear and entertaining; you needn't to be a technician or an engineer to understand the suggestions and analyses. Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings will prove incredibly useful for people who are about to build a home or remodel, or who simply want to get the most bang for their buck and not waste energy or foul the environment.

From the Publisher:

Learn how to save hundreds of dollars by replacing your least efficient appliances and buttoning up your house! For over a decade, the Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings has helped people who care about their budgets and about the environment to find energy-saving products. Now, with energy prices higher than ever, the ACEEE has released the 8th edition of its pennywise consumer report, The Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings.

The Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings, 8th Edition is the ACEEE’s response to previously unanswered concerns surrounding rising energy prices, "greenwashed" labels and products that run by questionably energy efficient standards. With this Consumer Guide, readers will learn which investments in energy efficiency pay for themselves and why EnergyGuide labels on appliances can be misleading.

From insulation and lighting to laundry and food storage, energy efficiency pays. The Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings will show you how to join the millions of consumers who are saving money while saving the earth. Reduce your energy bills and make a positive impact on national security, the economy, and the environment with all new listings of the most efficient products you can buy.

In this critical guide, authors Alex Wilson, Jennifer Thorne and John Morrill tackle the large-scale energy guzzlers like boilers and furnaces as well as the miscellaneous end users found on kitchen counter tops. Complete with home energy action checklists for long and short-term savings, The Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings is the most comprehensive resource for homeowners and consumers interested in a more efficient lifestyle.
