This is a great companion for homeowners, specially for people that are planning on building or purchasing a new house. Some of the informations in there I wish I had known before. I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review

This short informative book provides a wealth of information for homeowners about saving money while making your home safer, more energy efficient, and more comfortable.

The early chapters contain information about siding, roofs, insulation, solar screens, HVAC systems, lighting, appliances, and more.  Many different options are explored, with detailed information and statistics included.

There is quite a bit of information about solar REC programs, and the author also explains geothermal and micro-hyrdopower systems.  There are also sections that focus on health issues; such as dealing with mold, radon and asbestos.

The last few sections of the book contain a list of provinces in Canada, and states in the US that have energy efficiency programs, like tax credits for solar system installations.  

Overall, this is a useful book for Canadians or Americans that are looking for ways to live a more energy efficient life, and have a healthier home for humans and for the planet.
