Default NRCAN Keeping the Heat in (book / guide on efficient homes & renovation)

I came across this today. Its a very comprehensive guide on general home heating and cooling efficiency put together by NRCAN (Natural Resources Canada). Its basically a get started quick guide for EcoRenovators! It goes over quite a bit including:
  • Basics of heat movement
  • Materials used for insulation and sealing
  • Moisture control
  • Air leakage control and testing
  • Insulating roofs and attics
  • Insulating walls
  • Insulating basements
  • Windows & doors
  • How to operate your home more efficiently

Yup, very good organization. They have a lot of publications if you want to search. Takes some time. The Building Science Corp in Mass. references them a lot.
