The EPA, and Mother Earth, have expressed interest in "Passive Solar Heat Box" units for home and commercial building heating. We decided to build one, 4.5' by 6.5' to check it out. Using old 2 x 4's, some polycarbonate panels we had in storage, we built a box, spray painted screen wire black, tacked aluminum foil on the back wall of the box. When the sunlight came through the polycarbonate, it hit the "black" screen wire, and some of the light hit the aluminum foil and that reflected back creating more heat. We cut a hole in the bottom of the back wall and a hole in the top, and sealed it all tight with silicone. To our amazement, after only 10 minutes in the sun, the box was throwing out a breeze of hot air (130 to 140 degrees F) while the temperature outside was 78 degrees. We tested it several times and even when few clouds passed by, managed a 40 to 60 degree spread. We have been told that if you add bottles of anti-freeze, or rocks, in the unit (would take a larger, deeper unit) that the heat will keep on for about 6 hours after the sun goes down. I plan to put a little solar powered fan on mine to get even more volume of air. I have a basement that is hard to keep warm. It is always 30 degrees cooler than any other room in the house, and I'm going to "Passive solar" heat my "man cave". In this case, the EPA, and MOTHER EARTH NEWS had a great idea. We know there are commercial units available out there, but it was fun building something, especially something that worked. If your house or commercial buildings have energy efficiency units they sell for more, have higher occupancy, and higher rents. The also appraise for more. Put one of these on your Green House and you can heat it even more, and grow vegetables all winter. See: http:www.cornucopia-enterprise.com Give us a call: www.benboothe.com, or www.environment-soultions.com 800-379-8048. Directions: 1. Build wood frame 2. Put aluminum foil on inside of back 3. Install wire screen 2" above the foil 4, Cover the entire frame with polycarbonate to allow the sun to come in hit the foil and reflect and concentrate the heat on the "black wire". 5. Cut a hole at the top of the back wall and another at the bottom of the front polycarbonate wall. 6. Cut a vent hole to match each in your wall, be sure you use an AC vent that can be opened or closed seasonally. 7. If you want to control the speed of the air, install a fan to pull or push the air through.

When trying to save energy, most homeowners focus their efforts on decreasing their air conditioner or heater use. Most don’t realize that the water heater is typically the second biggest energy expense within a home. The average water heater can cost as much as $600 per year to run. However, new energy-efficient technology can cut that number in half. When is it time to replace your water heater? • Hot water starts taking longer to get to the faucet. • Tanks start leaking and cause water damage to flooring. • Keep in mind that older water heaters – even if they’re working fine – are not as energy efficient as newer models and they cost more to run. Types of water heaters and cost savings • Conventional tank water heaters use either electricity or gas. They heat and store a set amount of water in the tank. o Newer tank water heaters often use a thicker insulation – saving up to $30 per year. • Tankless water heaters do not store water, and they only heat water as it is being used. o This saves an average of $175 per year for a family of four. o An important consideration is that tankless water heaters require larger gas lines because they need more gas in short streaks. Your existing water lines may or may not be designed for this. • Condensing-styled water heaters can save about $170 per year for a family of four. • Heat pump water heaters save about $150 per year for a family of four. Newer, more energy-efficient water heaters will cost more money upfront, but your savings will add up over time. And, there are often rebates to get some of the initial investment back. To help conserve water-heating energy, you can also insulate your water pipes, and set your water heater to 125 degrees. (Never set the temperature lower than 120 degrees. A temperature below 120 degrees can allow bacteria to grow. ) If you would like more information about energy efficiency, visit our website at powerhousetv.com, or find out when you can watch a full episode on your local Iowa or Wisconsin TV station at http://www.powerhousetv.com/GetShowInfo/StationsShowTimes/

Check out www.yuppiechef.com/cookingschool We've had a number of people asking just how induction cooking works so we decided to put a little video together to illustrate the genius of it all. Induction pans are made of ferromagnetic metal. Induction hobs have electromagnets in them and when they're turned on the induction cookware on the hob essentially turns into the element and gets hot - quickly! The amazing thing is that the actual hob surface doesn't get hot aside from a bit of reflected heat. This makes induction cooking fast, energy efficient and far safer to use than conventional stove tops or gas burners.

Mick Laverick of LeeMick Ltd has been an underfloor heating engineer for 15 years. In this video, Mick takes us through the process of laying water underfloor heating and explains why he considers floor heating to be a far preferable way to heat your home than central heating. As well as underfloor heating costs being significantly lower than central heating, an absence of radiators can free up floor space and make it easier to position furniture in rooms against walls. Heated floors can also give you more control over the temperature of individual rooms.

Heat-On far infrared heaters can be installed directly to the ceiling or as can be seen here they are suspended down to a more optimum height around 3.0m above the floor. The heaters are not directly space heating the air. What the heaters are actually doing is transferring thermal heating energy into the floor and surrounding walls. Once enough heat energy is absorb by the building and it's furnishings - its the floor and the walls that actually heat and increase the ambient room temperature. This all happens very quickly as the invisible heating waves travel at the speed of light. The benefits of having the heaters suspended lower is that the required system output capacity is reduced. For example this is a 92m2 room with 4.5m high ceilings and we are able to heat it with only 75W/m2. This is a total output of only 6.9kW per room or 28Amps. This is a very efficient and effective way of space heating especially for large areas with high ceilings.

The Working Principle of Heat ControllerA heat controller is a device that automatically maintains temperature within a preset limit. There are various types of heat controllers. However, their working principle can be easily described using the example of a heat regulator in a regular flatiron.A bimetal plate with an insulator finger at the end is attached to the bottom of a flatiron. It is in thermal contact with a heater element. The electric contact of a heat controller consists of two flexible plates. A rod goes through an opening in the plate. The bottom end of the rod rests against the plate, while the top end is connected to a limb. The limb is used for adjusting the necessary temperature.If the limb is turned clockwise, the rod is screwed into the stationary nut attached to the cramp. It presses against the plate. As the result the left end of the plate goes down together with the other end. There is still electric contact between the plates. However, the distance between the rod and the left end of the plate decreases.On the contrary, if the limb is turned counterclockwise, the rod will be unscrewed and the left end of the plate will go up lifting the whole plate.As the result the distance between the rod and the left end of the plate will increase.As the bimetal plate heats up, it bends. The rod attached to one end raises and reaches the plate. It lifts the plate and breaks the electric contact. At this moment the flatiron turns off automatically. If you set a smaller distance, the contact will be released at a lower temperature.As the bimetal plate cools down it becomes straight and the rod goes down. It moves away from the plate and the contact closes again. The flatiron turns on automatically. The indicator light shows, if the heat controller is working. If you adjust it to a lower temperature, the light will turn on less often.

THE POWERHOUSE IN YOUR LIVING ROOM If your house was built or renovated to low-energy specifications, the The Tonwerk storage heating stove with Aqua module is all you need to keep it warm and cosy (subject to your technical installation andrequirements). In other buildings, the Aqua module is an excellent addition to the existing centralheating -- particularly during the shoulder season. Homes built or renovated to low-energyspecifications provide excellent heat insulation and a hermetically optimised shell tooffer a comfortable, energy-saving lifestyle. Heating and hot water are often obtained from renewable energy sources. Many of these homes also boast comfort ventilation with heat recovery: fresh air from outside the house is drawn into the bedrooms and living areas, and stale air is evacuated via the kitchen, bathroom and WC. These technical innovations deliver a huge reduction in energy consumption. Financially, the investment is well worthwhile: build to low-energy specifications and you save on annual operating costs and protect yourself from continually rising prices for fossil fuels in the form of gas and oil. The Tonwerk storage heating stove with Aqua module: T-NEO eco2 PLUS, T-LINE ecoe2 PLUS and T-LOFT PLUS The Tonwerk storage heating stoves with Aqua module are perfectly adapted to the energysaving concept of low-energy building techniques: sandwiched between the stove storage block and the outer casing there is an absorber jacket inside which circulating water can absorb up to 50% of the heat from the stove for use via the central heating system. This reduces the direct release of heat into the ambient air, which makes sense in rooms requiring little heating. The absorber jacket is sufficient to heat ancillary rooms without the need for chimney outlets or additional heating systems, and installation costs are very modest. Thermostat valves ensure optimum heat distribution. The pump and safety technology required for the stove water circuit requires very little space and ensures a correct flow rate at all times. If you have not built or renovated to low-energy specifications, storage heating stove with Aqua Module eprovides an excellent addition to your existing central heating. Depending on the heating needs the Aqua module can be used: -- in combination with the existing central heating system -- as a direct heater in its own heating circuit, without buffer storage -- as the sole heat source in a low energy house -- in combination with a solar installation Comfort and heating requirements -- an individual decision Individuals vary greatly in their perception of comfortable heating levels. That is why it is so important to start by determining the building heating requirement before deciding on what type of heating to opt for. Wood-burning systems are fun, but do involve some work: the wood has to be transported, cut and properly stored. The Tonwerk storage heating stove with Aqua module is an economic stove: used as the sole source of heat in a low-energy house, it will burn, on average, one to two loads of wood a day, which is equivalent to between 1,200 and 2,400 kg (2,5 to 5 steres) of wood a year. Your effort will be rewarded with a crackling fire and a cosy living area. And remember: the T-LOFT PLUS diffuses pleasant, healthy radiant heat for some ten hours -- long after the fire has burned right down. The storage heating stove with the Aqua module combines wellness and the fascination of flames with the convenience and additional benefits of heat distribution -- appealing, efficient, clean, and healthy.

Shop our ductless systems online http://ingramswaterandair.com/heating-conditioning-ductless-mini-split-c-45_124.html A mini-split is ideal when you have limited space in which to work or the location to be cooled and heated lacks sufficient ductwork. And with a heat pump, you can achieve solid energy efficiencies that will save money. A basic mini-split is rated at least a 13 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating and some models can reach even higher SEERs. These units provide effective air comfort where you need them to while maintaining low energy consumption. A Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump is not the most difficult HVAC system to install, but it is not something to take lightly. Proper installation is key for achieving the best energy efficiencies the unit can produce. By design, installation of the interior unit of a mini-split is relatively simplified. The most difficult electrical work is already done and housed safely within the system. What is required is properly mounting the unit itself on a wall and then running the various connections to the outdoor unit. Start by removing the wall mount from the back of the mini-split interior unit. Then, pick out a spot on a wall surface where you want the unit to be secured. After you have decided, use a level to mark out drill points and secure the wall mount according to instructions. You will have to drill holes that are level with one another. Through this process, be sure you have marked the area so that you know where you are going to drill. Measure twice, cut once. It's a carpenter's rule and it works here. For us, we want to measure twice and drill each hole once. One thing our interior walls probably do not need are unnecessary holes. After you have measured, drilled and installed the wall bracket, make sure the latch points are secure. The last thing you want is for the mini-split to tumble off the wall. Once the wall mount is ready, carefully unfold the refrigerant pipe making sure not to damage the tube in the process. Next, drill the hole for condensate drainage making sure to angle the hole slightly downward so gravity can do its job. It is important to note that you are going to combine the condensate tube, refrigerant line and conduit wire in the same bundle so you only have to have one hole going through your wall. Secure these together using tape and make sure the bundle is tightly packed to reduce needed space and making running them through the wall easier. Be careful not to damage the components in this process. Now, once the wall mount is ready, the condensate tube is attached, the refrigerant line is secure, plugs are installed, and the electrical cable has been run through you are ready to mount the interior unit on the wall. Lift the unit in to place making sure that the tube/line/cable combination pushes smoothly through the opening you drilled. After attachment to the wall mount the interior unit should be firmly secure and your refrigerant line, condensate tube and electrical cables should be run through the wall. It is time to install the outdoor unit. On a mini-split heat pump, the outdoor unit is composed of a condenser, efficient compressor and installation kit. Before beginning, you will need to decide how you want to place the outdoor unit. You can put it on a pad, mount it on an exterior wall or place it on a rooftop. Wherever you want to place your outdoor unit always remember to make sure it is properly secured before you make any connections between the interior and outdoor systems. For this video, we will be installing the outdoor unit on a pad. When the outdoor unit is properly placed on the pad and anchored you may remove the flare nuts from the surface valves. If you are using prefabricated line sets, then the flare nuts may be discarded, but if not they may be flared onto the lines that will be connected to the system. Before you start doing any cutting you need to make sure all the pieces are ready and you need to consider the proper tubing configuration. If the condenser is mounted higher than the air handler you must insure that there will be proper oil return to the compressor. You will need an inverted trap immediately exiting the condenser unit and additional oil traps for every 16 feet of vertical pipe run. With those requirements met, you are ready to cut. After you cut the copper tubing, be sure to clean the interior of the tube so there are no fragments remaining inside from the cutting process. Excess material left over may cause corrosion. Also, cut carefully so you do not dent the copper tubing. We carry a full line of ductless mini split units from 13 to 30 Seer . We offer free lifetime technical support and 24/7 phone service. Feel free to call us with any questions at 855-INGRAMS or 1-800-360-1569 , Visit BetterwayAC.com for more information on ductless mini split heat pumps and air conditioners.

Jim Trussler is CEO/Co-founder of LST Energy -- a startup commercializing a patented system to burn hay in traditional furnaces and boilers. Scientists have for decades been unsuccessfully trying to find a method to use hay for conventional heating applications. LST found a way. The system has been tested over two winters by the NS Agricultural College and exceeded expectations. This breakthrough enables a flood of new opportunities for farmers to monetize hay crops, entrepreneurs to process the hay into fuel pellets and consumers to cut their heating costs in half -- all in addition to the enormous environmental benefits of using hay instead of oil. Jim is a long time entrepreneur. At his core he is a CA specializing in international tax and finance. Over the past decade and a half he has been involved in 6 startups ranging from emergency medicine, to 3D innovations, social media apps and precision metal products. His current business bases are Halifax, Toronto, Barbados and Pictou.

The following edit was recommended by DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Geothermal Technologies Office: At :58, “During the winter, the air is usually cooler than the temperature below ground. The solution circulates in a loop underground and absorbs the Earth's heat. This heat is brought to the surface and transferred to a heat pump.

Curling up by the fire may sound cozy, but if your fireplace is burning wood, it’s definitely not efficient. A wood-burning fireplace is one of the least efficient ways to heat your home. Since hot air rises, the majority of the hot air produced by the fireplace, along with the heated air from your home, goes out the chimney. Only a small percentage of heated air from the fireplace makes it into the room. Installing a natural gas fireplace insert converts a wood-burning fireplace into a more efficient heating option for your home. If you can’t invest in a natural gas insert, there are other do-it-yourself options to make your wood burning fireplace more energy efficient. These include adding glass doors with insulation and a tight seal, installing an outdoor air intake at the back of the fireplace, turning on a ceiling fan in the room, placing wood on a grate with C-shaped metal tubes and burning only dry hard wood.
