From the ashes of his original handbook, Chill in the Living Room would be born. This book explores the historical forces, policies, economic theory, and technical advances that gave form to our residential built environment. It describes the fragile, uncertain, and dependent systems that homeowner's innocently rely on for electricity, natural gas, and water. In the end, it gives homeowners practical real-world strategies for converting their homes into some semblance of energy efficiency in preparation for a painful post peak transition to a more sustainable future.
John has also written a series of “How To” books aimed at improving the energy efficiency and sustainability of America's existing housing stock.
