Energy efficiency is most certainly a buzz phrase these days. And homeowners and renters alike are starting to think about (and practice) ways to conserve, as much for the environment as for relief to their own pocketbooks.

The U.S. Department of Energy has a guide to explain simple energy savers around the home. There is also federal assistance for low-income families to help make their homes more energy efficient. And now there’s David Findley’s new book, “Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Audits: 140 Simple Solutions to Lower Energy Costs, Increase Your Home’s Efficiency, and Save the Environment (McGraw-Hill).” This edition is part of the Green Guru Guides, a group of how-to books (published on acid-free, recycled post-consumer fiber) on living a more environmentally-sensitive life.

“Energy’s a big problem for everyone,” says Seth Leitman, editor of the Green Guru Guides. “People should understand, the more they save on energy, the more they’re reducing their carbon footprint.”

For the entire rave review from AOL.
