Reducing energy consumption and costs is an issue of ever-increasing importance and European and national legislation aimed at reducing carbon emissions is tightening up minimum energy standards for new buildings and those being extended or renovated. Energy-saving measures in the home will, therefore, become ever more cost-effective throughout our lifetimes.

The book covers every aspect of the efficient consumption of energy in the home including the following and much more:

  • 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
  • The wider environmental issues including water economy and recycling

This non-technical book is fully revised and updated to take account of recent legislation and developments in energy efficient products and techniques.
