3.0 out of 5 stars Haynes home insulation 29 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very well produced book but very basic. If you are a first timer looking for DIY insulation tips it's OK but there is nothing that is not available elsewhere. I applaud what the book is trying to do but ultimately it fails for me. Often informarion is given with the minimum of detail or a small photograph. Competent people will find it interesting but it is not as good as other Haynes manuals I have bought.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too simple (too glossy) 20 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very simple book, I wanted a lot more facts to compare. It seemed to want to cover everything possible; not possible in such a small book. More like a fire side book than a referance book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical guide 5 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The surest way to save on home energy bills is to improve insulation. However, the choice of products and methods is overwhelming and there are many potential pitfalls to trap the unwary. This book explains the theory and the options clearly and the important issues are illustrated with good quality photos.

Having read this book, I feel confident that I have enough knowledge to avoid having the wool pulled over my eyes by builders (who let's be honest, are notorious for finding the short cut in any job) and ensuring that any work I have done complies with good practice.

By Andrew
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book gives a first-rate introduction to home insulation. It assumes no background knowledge and rapidly dispels much of the 'hot air' on the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive 5 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There's a LOT of information in here and lots of how-to's as well as info. I wanted help for a Listed cottage but I have also laned it to my son with a newish first-time buy so that he can set up a music room in the garage. Excellent value (would be even better as a paperback) and from a trusted source. it covers all you'll need.
