Alternative Power Choices and David Nelmes announces the release of a new energy guide, 'The Rewards of Making Energy-Efficient Choices'. This new book helps redefine the process of going green by providing information and illustrations that allow consumers to better decide which green choices are worth the cost.
The idea of going green often includes thoughts of major expenses or drastic life changes, but this may not be necessary. This new book helps identify which energy efficient changes result in saving energy more quickly, resulting in a more rapid return on investment.
By providing a more practical approach to going green, this book helps eliminate wasted effort and speeds up the process of saving money by helping to more quickly reduce energy consumption. The end result is that anyone can adapt their home to save energy and help the environment while also reducing their living expenses.
David Nelmes, author of this new energy guide, started his career as an electrical construction assistant in the nuclear power plant industry and later became part of a family based heating and air conditioning business. This combined electrical, heating, air conditioning and plumbing background set the stage for him to form a well rounded perspective of how energy should be used, and where it is being wasted.
"A common issue with conserving energy or going green is that many of the ideas to reduce energy consumption or to generate your own power, require substantial investments of time or money," explains Mr. Nelmes. "Some people can afford to make those commitments, but it can be difficult for the average guy to find a place to start. That's where this book fits in. It helps to define where the average person can more affordably start going green by learning how to approach energy efficiency from a more practical point of view."
Topics covered in the book include insulating and sealing your home, selecting the best heating and air conditioning system, lighting and appliance selection, creating hot water more efficiently, using renewable wind power and solar energy, powering your vehicle, and references to funding and loan sources to help with energy related home improvements.
"The overall message of the book is not to be discouraged if you can't afford many of the high-end energy saving or energy generating systems," Nelmes adds. "You can start going green right now and reduce your monthly energy costs because the most important steps to take are often just changes in habit or minor home improvements."
Throughout the book, many web site references are also provided to help the reader obtain additional information from the manufacturers and distributors of many energy saving products. This capacity to obtain information beyond the boundaries of the book itself is very helpful and makes the book a bit more interactive than most.
"Information about how to best save energy or create energy is constantly growing and adapting to the current needs of our society," Nelmes expresses. "So to ensure this book has the potential to adapt to new and innovative ideas and products, an author commentary section and a public forum were added to our web site so that new information will be always be at the fingertips of all who visit."
Overall, 'The Rewards of Making Energy-Efficient Choices' provides an inspiring and positive approach to making simple changes today that may provide savings that can be applied to making even greater changes in the future. For anyone who desires to be green, but just does not know where to start or is discouraged by the possible expense of doing so, this book provides the necessary information and motivation to get started.
'The Rewards of Making Energy-Efficient Choices' is currently available through the authors Web site, Energy Efficient Choices, where the author is also regularly available to answer energy conservation related questions submitted in the Energy Efficiency Forum.
