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 and those being extended or renovated. Energy-saving measures in the home will, therefore, become ever more cost-effective throughout our lifetimes. The 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. AUTHOR: Patrick Waterfield is an independent energy consultant living and working mainly in Northern Ireland. From a background of academic research, specializing in passive solar design, he ran a UK government-funded consultancy service promoting best practice in energy-efficient design of buildings and services. He now works as a self-employed energy consultant covering all building types and sectors.
