The Honest Book

The Honest Book isn’t like other energy-saving books.

Most do-it-yourself books about saving energy are written for the entire country. They pretend that a task like installing an efficient heating system is just as important in Florida as it is in Massachusetts—that it will save the same amount of energy in both places.

Specific to New England

The Honest Book is more accurate. It tells you the most effective energy-saving tasks for New England’s weather, energy use, and buildings.
