Green Remodeling free pdf This is a comprehensive guide. It first points out the advantages of remodelling. Buildings are responsible for 40 per cent of world-wide energy flow and material use- so how you remodel can make a difference. Upgrading furnaces, cabinets and toilets means less fossil fuel pollution, reduced resource depletion, and fewer health risks. Green remodelling is more energy-efficient, more resource-conserving, healthier for occupants and more affordable to create, operate and maintain. The book then discusses simple green renovation for homeowners, focussing on key aspects of the building including foundations, framing, plumbing, windows, heating and finishes. Then, in an easy-to-read format complete with checklists, personal stories, expert insights and an extensive resource list, it concerns easy ways to save energy, conserve natural recourses, and protect the health of loved ones.
