3.0 out of 5 stars Haynes home insulation

Competent people will find it interesting but it is not as good as...

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too simple (too glossy), 20 May 2013

This review is from: Home Insulation Manual: How to cut energy bills and make your home warm and comfortable (Haynes Manuals) (Hardcover)
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.

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.

This review is from: Home Insulation Manual: How to cut energy bills and make your home warm and comfortable (Haynes Manuals) (Hardcover)
This is a classic Haynes. Clear, well thought-out and with lots of hints, tips and money-saving advice for every type and period of home, including modern houses. Most useful. I have a brand-new home that is poorly constructed and had serious flaws in insulation and energy-saving. This book helps.

This review is from: Home Insulation Manual: How to cut energy bills and make your home warm and comfortable (Haynes Manuals) (Hardcover)
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.

This review is from: Home Insulation Manual: How to cut energy bills and make your home warm and comfortable (Haynes Manuals) (Hardcover)
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.
