Newly revised and updated to include information on energy efficiency-saving money, saving energy and maintaining your home. Finally, a homeowner's manual for everyone. Just as a new vehicle comes with an Owner's Manual, now your house can too. Homeowners aren't expected to repair their own home anymore than a driver is expected to repair their vehicle. Yet in each case, the owner is expected to know when a problem arises and who to call for help if the job isn't DIY. That is an owner's responsibility. Maintaining a home means knowing when servicing needs to be done, or when repairs need to be made. None of this is obvious to someone who has never been responsible for a home.
