One of my broskis Jeff McIntire-Strasburg over at Sustainablog wrote a great review of Do It Yourself Home Energy Audits. One of my books from the Green Guru Guides.
Here is a sample of the story:
Watching the utility bills climb this summer? Ready to take control of your energy use? For a home energy audit is a good first step. Especially towards figuring out how you use energy in your home. Moreover and prioritizing where you can start saving. Some utility companies offer auditing services; there are also private contractors that will do this for you (and you may be able to write their fees off on your taxes).
Do It Yourself Home Energy Audits
You don’t necessarily need to bring in a professional to conduct an audit, though… with a little knowledge and planning, you can do it yourself. David S. Findley’s Do It Yourself Home Energy Audits (affiliate link) aims to provide that knowledge, and help with the planning. A volume in McGraw-Hill’s “Green Guru Guides” series, Findley’s book walks you through the process of auditing your energy (and water) use, and helps you determine what steps you can take immediately, which ones might require some additional thought and planning, and when it’s time to call in a contractor.
Again, so whether you’re moving into a brand new home. Or are you buying an existing property. In addition are you improving your current residence? Then you’ll find the practical tips and step-by-step projects. All inside Do It Yourself Home Energy Audits. For it will dramatically reduce your energy usage and boost your savings in no time.
