The age of cheap energy is over and energy costs will increase relentlessly in the future as demand outstrips supply. Energy-saving measures in the home will, therefore, become ever more cost-effective throughout lifetimes. This non-technical book is packed full of useful information and tips. It covers every aspect of the efficient consumption of energy in the home including the position of the dwelling, its method of construction, and the materials used; energy rating and the legal framework; insulation and U-values; windows and doors; conservatories, sunrooms, and loft conversions; heating and hot-water systems; lighting and making the best use of daylight; ventilation; renewable energy technologies; appliances, gadgets, and housekeeping; and the wider environmental issues including water economy and recycling.
