House as a System
10/14/06, 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Cost: $40.00
Location: West Valley Branch Library, 1243 San Tomas Aquino Rd., San Jose

Your home is a system and all parts of it interact with each other. Homeowners depend heavily on a home’s systems and its components, such as heating, cooling, plumbing, water heating, and electrical. Most have little knowledge of how they operate or how they can easily be improved. This workshop introduces you to how they work, how you should operate them, how you can test them, and what basic improvements can be made. With this knowledge, you can reduce utility bills, improve indoor air quality, and save money while raising your home’s comfort and performance. Continental breakfast served.
