“The wonderful thing about saving energy is that, in addition to helping the environment, you save money.” This quote from the newly released 10th Edition of the best-selling Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings by Jennifer Thorne Amann, Alex Wilson and Katie Ackerly says it all.  Every kilowatt-hour of electricity you avoid using is money in your pocket and saves over a pound of CO2 that would otherwise be pumped into the atmosphere.  Want to know more about how to cash in on savings? 

 The new Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings is completely revised to incorporate the latest developments in green technology.  It is the definitive reference for consumers who want to better their home’s performance while reducing their energy bills. Updated and expanded chapters focus on specific aspects of any home, such as heating and cooling, ventilation, electronics, lighting, cooking and laundry, and provide helpful explanations for each, including:

  • Energy use characteristics
  • Comparisons between available technologies
  • Cost-effective repair and replacement options
  • Step-by-step guidance for finding the right equipment.

This comprehensive resource is packed with tips on improving existing equipment and guidance for when and why to invest in new purchases, as well valuable pointers on locating grants or incentives offered by local governments and utilities. It is a must-read for anyone concerned about reducing both their energy bills and their environmental impact.

You can purchase the book from our website­­, fine bookstores near you or from your preferred e-book retailer.
