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 as well as those being extended or renovated. Energy-saving measures in the home will, therefore, become ever more cost-effective throughout our lifetimes. This 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.
