Save Energy at Home

The weather is getting colder, and it is becoming more and more apparent that my house is not very energy efficient. This concerns me because I am interested in environmental issues. And more importantly, I want my utilities bills to be cheap. So what is one to do? Well, one should go to the library and find some handy books on how to save energy (and money) at home. Here’s what I’m reading:

The Energy Saving House
Fun book from French authors who work with the eco-centre Terre Vivante. Very technical at times, but very interesting. Do you know what a negawatt is?

Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings
This tried and true best-seller has several editions. The 9th is the most recent. The book has lots of practical advice, and a lot of the fixes are quick and relatively cheap and easy. Just my style.
