Eco House Book
Buildings are one of the biggest polluters on the planet. They are responsible for a far greater proportion of the carbon dioxide emissions than cars, planes or factories. There is a great deal we can do to convert existing buildings into greener, healthier places and to reduce the carbon footprint or consumption of water.
Special focus is given to reducing the vast amounts of energy and water that buildings consume on a daily basis, with advice on low energy lighting strategies and decorative choices, improving insulation and reducing energy use, the latest green heating systems, alternative ways of generating power, and electricity reducing appliances.
As we are urged to change our lifestyles to reduce our carbon footprint and consumption of water, there has never been a better time implement these concepts.
