This cooperative extension publication from Cornell University is a guide for energy conservation in homes, apartments, and transportation. Written in non-technical language, this guide provides the layperson with information about weatherization, home appliance use, recreation and transportation practices to conserve energy and, thus, save money. The major sections of the publication focus on home heating and cooling, energy efficiency and home appliances. Other sections involve home furnishing, clothing, landscaping, home remodeling, home buying, and commuting to save energy. A section on attitudes and education is also included along with some energy conservation activities. An energy management checklist is provided. Tables include: (1) Types of storm windows and doors; (2) Insulation materials, R-valves and uses; (3) Minimum R-valves for homes in areas with annual heating degree days greater than 4500; (4) Characteristics of Northeastern U.S. woods for fireplace use; and (5) Estimated annual kilowatthour consumption for selected electric appliances (1970). Although written for the Northeastern part of the United States, this publication can be useful to energy educators, homeowners, and organizations nationwide. (MR)
