Energy Efficiency in Old Houses by Martin Godfrey Cook

Book Description

Most people in the UK live in an old house built before the age of modern building regulations and energy-efficiency standards, and one in four of us lives in a house that is at least a century old. However, it is possible to upgrade our existing housing stock and to live in our old houses in an energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable way. In an age of relentlessly rising energy costs, global warming and climate change, it pays to put your own old house in order. This invaluable book is packed full of useful information and tips to improve the energy efficiency of your old house particularly now we are in the age of Home Information Packs and Energy Performance Certificates.

'Zero Carbon' is an abstract concept for most people, but we have lived energy-profiligate lifestyles for too long on finite fossil-fuel resources. We now face potential environmental catastrophe from climate change and global warming, with a continuing exponentially expanding global population that doubles every four decades.
