    I enjoyed reading this book, but with the Red New Edition flash across the bottom corner of the cover, I expected it to be about 12 months old I was wrong I am interested in micro generation wind power.Under Renewable Energy on p128 it mentions Windsave It says that it is a recent development which makes wind energy much accessible for most people That s great but when I research a bit into the product company, I find that Windsave went into administration in 2009 It s 2013 now so it s hardly New Edition.That aside, the book is a good read, but not bang up to date with technologies that may need to be added in the future.

    For someone who has little understanding of technical data this book does attempt to explain things in a straightforward manner The book can be read from cover to cover or by dipping into different chapters in any order Well worth the money and some really useful pointers.

    As a Domestic Energy Assessor DEA providing Energy Performance Certificates EPCs to estate agents, solicitors, private sellers and landlords, this is my bible I used it during my training and keep it as a handy reference It is well written, by chartered surveyors and is clear and concise, without being too technical I thoroughly recommend it to any DEA, whether already working or studying for the exam The only DEA book you will need.

    This is a good book, well researched and clearly explained It is focused on the UK building regulations and practices, so a valuable resource for all those living in Britain, but not so useful if you are on the continent The book is well illustrated, and offers a full introduction to most of the topics you need be concerned with, particularly for a new build, although much could be applied for renovating a house.Clearly, as a small ish book, not everything can be covered in huge detail, but it does at least allow comparison of the relative merits of the different techniques.
