Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We have all heard the news: oil prices have exceeded $100 a barrel and natural gas rates have exploded by 74% over the past four years. And these costs will continue to rise. So how can the average homeowner lower their energy bill and still maintain a comfortable, healthy, and green house? The answer is: Bruce Harley's Cut Your Energy Bills Now. Offering eye-opening incentives and easily achievable methods, Harley's uncluttered and organized approach will not only benefit the environment, it will help anyone reduce their heating, cooling, and electrical expenses. Highlighted by numbered tips and techniques for easy reference, the book presents a treasure trove of simple and inexpensive ways for cutting energy costs by up to 20% — and even 40% in some cases.

Book News Annotation:

An engineer specializing in energy efficiency, Harley conducts seminars on construction, energy codes, and related topics. Here he offers homeowners advice on such matters as lighting and plug-in appliances, big appliances, hot water, heating and cooling, air leaks to the outside, insulation, and windows and doors. A chapter also suggests how to plan energy fixes by looking at a house as a single complex system. In many cases, he includes photographs of the work actually being done, but does not provide step-by-step details. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
