A question for the experts out there… Christmas is coming, and that usually means I’ll get a few gift certificates to places like Amazon, Borders, etc. My library has plenty of titles for cooking, homebrewing, gardening and things like that. Living in Minnesota, one area I think I need to read up on are ways to keep a house warm in the wintertime without relying totally on natural gas and HVAC systems.
I live in a new house that’s pretty tightly constructed… there are a few tweaks here & there that I could do to keep the cold out, but overall I don’t think that’s the big issue. What I’m wondering about are ways to keep homes warm that make sense in a low energy future.
Anyone have some recommendations for books dealing with this subject? I’m looking for ideas about retrofitting existing homes as much as new sustainable construction methods.
Thanks in advance…
