About this title:

Synopsis: The Journal of Light Construction has assembled an all-star team of national building and energy experts to help you understand energy efficient construction methods and apply them to your new construction and remodeling projects. This practical book describes in detail the proven field-tested techniques that are both cost- effective and resource-efficient. For example, you'll learn: - The facts vs. myths about energy and moisture - The uses (and misuses) of air and vapor barriers- How to build low-cost airtight shells- The pros and cons of fiberglass, cellulose, and foam insulation-How to do blower door tests - Details for high-R wall systems - How to quickly find and seal hidden air leaks - Selecting the best windows for your climate - Cost-effective energy retrofits your customers want - Trouble-free heating and cooling installation - Ventilating tight homes with HRVs, ERVs, and alternatives - When indirect, tankles

Review: The JLC Guide to Energy Efficiency is an anthology of articles previously published in The Journal of Light Construction. (That fact has been thinly disguised by changing most of the articles titles.)

I know what you're thinking -- I subscribe to JLC already, so why buy the book? When I first saw the book and realized that its contents had been previously published, that's what I thought. But when I sat down and flipped through the pages, I changed my tune.

As you check out the collected articles, you'll realize, Oh, I forgot about that article. That was a really good one. Once you've got this book on your shelf, you won't have to thumb through ten years of back issues to find the gems. They're all here.

Here's a list of just some of the articles in the book all classics:


Blower-Door Testing, by David Keefe
Troubleshooting Spray Foam Installation, by Mason Knowles

Super-Insulated Slab Foundations, by Alan Gibson

Building a High-Performance Shell, by David Joyce

Remote Walls, by Thorsten Chlupp

Tight and Efficient Double Stud Walls, by Dan Kolbert

Attic Ventilation Details, by Gordon Tully

Insulated Cold Roof Retrofit, by Dan Perkins

Simple Exhaust Ventilation for Tight Houses, by Andrew Shapiro

Installing a Heat-Recovery Ventilator by David Hansen

Effective Air Sealing in Existing Homes, by Bruce Torrey

Retrofitting Exterior Insulation, by David Joyce

Designing Overhangs for South Glass, by Jerry Germer

Many authors are featured in this book, including Thorsten Chlupp, Paul Eldrenkamp, Dan Kolbert, Joe Lstiburek, and Mike Rogers.

Like all JLC articles, the ones collected in this book are generously illustrated with color photos and Tim Healey's famously clear illustrations. --Martin Holladay, Green Building Advisor
