Natural Home Heating: The Complete Guide to Renewable Energy Options

Natural Home Heating is the first comprehensive guide to heating your home with renewable energy sources. Greg Pahl offers a well-organized, easy-to-understand tour of all available renewable home-heating options, including wood, pellet, corn and grain-fired stoves, fireplaces, furnaces and boilers as well as masonry heaters, active and passive solar systems, and heat pumps. Learn how to burn environmentally friendly biodiesel fuels, not just in your car, but in your furnace or boiler. Included is everything you need to know about the fuels, systems, technologies, costs, and advantages and disadvantages of each option. Pahl teaches homeowners how to retrofit existing heating systems and choose renewable replacements, or design an entirely new house that can be heated comfortably with minimal environmental and financial impact.
Consider:

  • 95% of American homes are heated with fossil fuels or electricity (which is generated mainly by fossil fuels).
  • Oil and gas prices will continue to rise as supplies dwindle and sources become less reliable.
  • Home heating costs could double or even triple in the event of a fuel crisis.
  • The use of fossil fuels is the primary contributor to global warming.
  • There are viable, clean, healthy, and affordable home heating alternatives!
    Learn how to burn environmentally friendly bio-diesel fuels, not just in your car, but in your furnace. Find out how a ground-source heat pump works and why it can achieve 400% heating efficiency. Discover what it takes to make burning wood truly sustainable. Natural Home Heating explains all these details and more, making it unique in the marketplace.
