January 10th- "National Cut Your Energy Costs Day"

What could be a more timely topic in this season of soaring heating bills? Check out these two books from our collection that address this challenge. One is The Home Energy Diet: How to Save Money by Making Your House Energy Smart by Paul Scheckel. Scheckel gives practical suggestions in a breezy anecdotal style including appliance choices and tips on renewable energy sources. Just by using a few of his ideas, he promises savings of hundreds of dollars. And some of these changes can lead to improved indoor air quality and healthier homes.

Smart Power- An Urban Guide to Renewable Energy and Efficiecy by William H. Kemp is a good introduction for both homeowner and professional with hands-on guidance on steps one can take to be more energy efficient.

If you don't have time to read these books, look at this article by Scheckel from the The Mother Earth News.

The library will loan you an energy meter that you can plug your appliances into and see how much juice they are using.
