The Visual Handbook of Energy Conservation: A Comprehensive Guide to Reducing Energy Use at Home (Paperback)
From the author of the best-selling The Visual Handbook of Building and Remodeling (over 300,000 copies sold in all three editions), comes a new book in the same graphic format that explains how to reduce energy use in the home. With a vast array of well-organized and easily accessible essential data, The Visual Handbook of Energy Conservation is destined to establish itself as the standard reference for energy conservation projects.
Based on manufacturers' information, government GREEN/LEED information, builder association information, the author's personal experiences, and other sources, the book will document the established best practices when it comes to energy conservation. The most current energy-related building codes will be included and referenced frequently.
The visual handbook will cover all facets of building construction from foundations to interior finishes, from new construction to remodeling and renovation, and will include both residential and light commercial construction. It will be valued by architects, designers, and specifiers--as well as contractors, builders, subcontractors, developers, and others involved in the building, restoration, and renovation of buildings.
