Summary
Jeff Dondero walks you through your home's walls, doors, windows, and roof, room by room and appliance by appliance, breaking them down into simple terms so that you can make the smartest energy and resource choices possible. He even covers gardens and garages, explaining what household items cost to run, how to conserve energy when using them, giving guidance on what's sustainable and what isn't. This encyclopedic manual is very helpful for understanding the machine that is your house, and how to keep it maintained and running well and "green" while saving you money. This guide is a great fit to make sure that you make the best of your home and the resources that power and run it. Conservation in the home is something that you owe to yourself, your family, and your planet.--AMAZON
