A new book by an energy-conservation expert details hundreds of low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy in every area of the house - lighting, electrical, plumbing, HVAC - plus solar, geothermal, and wind energy applications to save energy - and money!
Sept. 27, 2020 - PRLog -- 1001 Energy Tips "a thematic approach" by WH Clark
Each chapter of 1001 Energy Tips opens with a dozen or more one-sentence tips from the experts. You can get started right away!
The second half of each chapter details many more energy-saving ideas - methods and techniques you've never seen before. There really are over a thousand energy tips - actually, the grand total is 1239 tips! You'll learn some of the science – and see it applied in so many practical examples, you'll be an energy expert yourself in no time.
Every "thematic area" of the house is covered in separate chapters: kitchen, bath, laundry, the yard - plumbing, electrical, and lighting. There are focus sections on solar for water heating; solar photovoltaics; geothermal for space heating; and detailed explanations for the HVAC system, the building envelope, and the roof-attic assembly. Nothing is left to the imagination!
The book also includes "Future Tech" policy suggestions as an "Engineering Green New Deal:"
- Plant 9 billion trees to make the U.S. carbon-neutral
- Use the "fly ash" byproduct of coal power-plants in concrete (cheaper and more durable than portland cement) to make utilities more cost-effective
- Efficiency upgrades across the board for motors, HVAC equipment, and "Dark City" light-pollution standards
- Solar and wind-power upgrades to the entire Puerto Rico power grid
- Geothermal and cogeneration incentives
For a limited time, a complimentary PDF copy is available to the media for review.
A FREE, official energy audit spreadsheet is available for readers to try out what they've learned.
