An excellent presentation by an Austrian gentleman, who heats his home with HHO. He discusses how he did it, why it is a superior form of heating, and how you can replicate his results quite easily. In fact, he challenges us to improve upon his basic system and discoveries. Nothing for sale here by me, just a presentation for information / educational purposes only.

What is the best, most money saving space heater? Infrared, ceramic, mica, oil-filled
 
15:29
Here are the rooms/applications I recommend for the different types of space heaters: Ceramic Space Heaters: https://amzn.to/2xRAxRj - Small ones are good for personal spaces like an office desk or cubicle. Larger ones are good for large rooms like family room, living room, garage etc. The fan can be loud so keep that in mind. Oil Filled Radiator Heaters: https://amzn.to/2NX0h8I - Use this type of space heater in a small to medium sized enclosed room that you are in for long periods of time like a bedroom. It is noiseless and ideal for maintaining a temperature. Good for when you are sleeping. Infrared Heaters: https://amzn.to/2NTI10b - Use these in larger or open areas. Make sure to point it to where people are. These type of heaters often look like furniture so they work well in a living, family, or dining room. They usually have a fan so you will have noise as an issue. Mica Panel Heaters: https://amzn.to/2NaRACp - Because of its versatility, this is probably my favorite style of space heater. It is noiseless, and lightweight. This will work well for any room and for large open spaces (though a parabolic heater, or heater with a fan is probably a better candidate for open spaces). Parabolic Space Heaters: https://amzn.to/2NfsP87 - The room type/size does not really matter much for this; use this for when you don't plan on moving around a lot. Watching TV, working on a workbench, etc (Note: I did not talk about this type of space heater in my video but I did use this type primarily when I was living in China. It is quite bright, so I would use this as a double for a light bulb. It heats up you and not so much the room, so if you move around the room a lot, this probably would not be the recommended style of space heater). Here are the space heaters I showed in this video: Mica - http://amzn.to/2lcrUtU || Infrared - https://amzn.to/2FejqKe || Ceramic - https://amzn.to/2vI0Iey || Oil-Filled - https://amzn.to/2HWFk7L The Experiment: Over the course of several months, I tested the room in the morning using various heaters. I tested the increase of temperature over an hour. The Results: The results were varied and a bit surprising. Basically, the more energy the heater used, the more it would heat the room (I guess that is your basic common sense). I found that heating a room as fast as possible is the best way to minimize cost. The best heater you can get for saving money is the one that gets the room hot the fasted. For me this turned out to be the mica and infrared heaters. Conclusion: Basically, there is no best heater. You need to find a heater that suits your needs. For me this was the mica heater. This is quiet and hot and was able to heat my room as fast as the infrared heater which is also good. I have seen ceramic heaters that work just as well as this. Here is the spreadsheet I used: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z5NrSiRgRi50oaE5BFHO7CtZ-l3nju9k_Co8lDNBWPQ/edit?usp=sharing A note about the spreadsheet. I used the spreadsheet to organize my data and I don't have all the notes and readings that I originally had; hopefully this spreadsheet helps explain what I was testing though. - - - - - - - - - - Visit http://www.TutorialGeek.net/ for more tutorials and reviews ================================== Music Credit: Santo Rico by Twin Musicom is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://www.twinmusicom.org/ Intro Credit: https://www.youtube.com/user/Alexbau01/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Amazon Affiliates Disclaimer:TutorialGeek is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com

Tiny Houses Need Heat Too! Budget Friendly Options
 
13:37
In our own little offgrid cabin we found that even in tiny spaces you have pockets of cold and heat that really matter when you are trying to get a good night's sleep! The dual heating/cooling units are great but if you are on a budget a space heater might be the way to start. Especially if you have little children the ground level gets cold enough that something you can cuddle up next to is nice. Because we were offgrid we used wood heat as well as propane to a much lesser degree. When we were on shore power we preferred to just use the grid and plug in a space heater. Our current tiny house at 500 square feet is heated with a stand alone propane stove and we heat the bedroom and bathroom with a space heater. Hopefully this year we can use the rocket mass heater and run it for only a few hours to figure out how to keep it from burning us out of the house at night!

Top 5 Tiny House Heating Options for Winter Living - Off Grid & On Grid
 
09:15
We're sharing the best options for heating a tiny house, the pros and cons of each heat source, and the product links below if you want to learn more! Thumbnail photo by Donald Lebel from Domaine Floravie! Domaine Floravie is an incredible tiny house resort on the shore of the St Lawrence River near Rimouski, Quebec. To learn more, visit their website here: www.domainefloravie.com Choosing a heating option for your tiny house can be overwhelming. There are so many options out there! To start, you'll want to ensure you have a well insulated tiny house, and an HRV system (heat recovery ventilation) to ensure you're always getting fresh air in your house without losing precious heat energy. Next, you'll want to use a BTU (British Thermal Unit) calculator to enter the climate and volume details for your tiny house so you can find out how big or small your heating system needs to be. At this point, it's a good idea to also decide if you want to be on the grid, off the grid, or have the ability to do both. Once you have this information, you can start considering options like a wood stove or fireplace, a propane heater, electric baseboard or wall heater, a solar air heater, or in-floor radiant heat. We've included links below for the heating systems we've seen used in tiny houses we've visited over the past few years. We're not sponsored by any of these companies.

Awesome Solar Air Heater for Off Grid Living, Tiny Houses, RVs and more..
 
03:44
Learn more about this awesome solar air heater that is self-contained and self-powered, and captures free heat from the sun to heat any space from an off-grid cabin, cottage, basement, garage, tiny house, or just a regular every day house. It's easy to use and only needs to be installed on a South-facing facade to function. Designed & produced by the Quebec solar power company Eco Solaris (http://www.ecosolaris.ca/), this solar air heater is really affordable and can heat 30% of a 1000 square foot area, meaning it could reduce your heating bill by 30% for every 1000 square feet of living space (but it obviously only works during the day). The photovoltaic solar panel produces electricity to power the fans inside the unit, while the heat panel absorbs heat from the sun which in turn heats up the air circulating through the panel before blowing it into whatever space you want it to heat. To see how the panel works, check out this short video made by the company: https://youtu.be/xLo-KOs0U1M We think this is an incredibly efficient and easy to use heat source that uses clean renewable energy and using these solar panels will help reduce our dependence on hydro and fossil fuel heat sources. We hope to see them installed on more and more houses in the future! To learn more about this solar air heater and the company that makes them, you can visit the Eco Solaris website and follow them on Facebook & YouTube here: http://energierenouvelable.ca/produits/en/solaire/chauffage-solaire/chauffe-air-solaire-c116c130c40/ https://www.facebook.com/ecoSolaris https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6aI-tvMtKfwmyaZD9-vwYw Thanks for watching!

Best DIY Home Heating : Cheap, Easy

Wendy Tremayne shows how easy it is to open and close curtains for passive solar heating. Her home heating bill has never exceeded $45 for a 1,100 square foot uninsulated trailer. The night time temperature that this film was made was down to 6F with windchill and day time high was only 36F. No heating was required during the day and the home heating unit only kicked on 3 times for 15 minute runs during the night to maintain a stable 60F indoor temperature.

NEW Flower Pot Heater - Costs Just 4 Cents An Hour To Run...
 
06:41
Simple, effective, cheap heater alternative to keep you warm this winter... Additional Video Notes: - COST: Costs mentioned in the video are base on Australian prices for Ikea candles - The may be cheaper/more expensive elsewhere - TIME: It takes about and hour to make a noticeable difference on overall room temperature. But sitting next to it makes a huge difference. e.g. if you're working at your desk, sit it next to you - MODIFICATIONS: The version shown in the video doesn't have any holes in the the top for the warm air to escape like many others on shown Youtube do. I have tried both configurations and my conclusion is that both options work well, but have slightly different applications -- No holes version gets hotter and therefore is better if you are sitting next to it as you get more radiant heat -- With holes version lets some of the hot air escape out the top and therefore fills the room with hot air, and is thus better for heating a larger area. - OTHER LINKS -- How to make a halving Joint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGfI4GRjm40

How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating
 
04:46
Use a specialized foam panel called Bekotec to lock the PEX tubing in place, cover it with a sand-and-cement mix, and tile away. (See below for a shopping list, tools, and steps.) Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Radiant floor heating is probably the best way to heat up any space. It's comfortable, quiet, and energy efficient. Although electric radiant heat is a popular choice for small projects, retiling a bathroom, say, hydronic, or water-based, radiant provides the ultimate in efficiency for bigger projects or an extensive remodel. If you want to DIY hydronic radiant, you can use a specially engineered foam panel from Schluter Systems called Bekotec. You lay the panels directly on the floor, press-fit PEX tubing into them, and add a thin layer of specially mixed concrete, five parts sand to one part portland cement. The panels provide a modest thermal break (R3), so you don't have to install an extra layer of insulation. Using this system adds less than 1 3/4 inches, including concrete, versus about 4 inches for the old-school method of tying tubing to wire mesh. That leaves you more headroom in basement applications. And the thin slab will heat up and cool down more quickly, allowing you to use lower water temperatures and save on your heating bill. Overall, it makes for a more responsive radiant slab. Steps for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: 1. Prep floor with leveling compound, if necessary. 2. Clean floor and install foam edging. 3. Lay first row of click-together panels. 4. Measure and trim the row's last panel to fit. 5. Cover the remaining area with panels. 6. Determine PEX spacing: 6-, 9-, or 12-inch rows. 7. Press-fit PEX between "studs" in panels. 8. Cover area with one continuous loop of PEX. 9. Leave extra tubing at boiler-room end for plumber to make connections. 10. Mix up a batch of "dry pack" concrete with a 5:1 ratio of sand to portland cement. 11. Spread and level over PEX, leaving a minimum of 5/16 inch of material above foam "studs." 12. Allow concrete to cure for a few days, then install your flooring of choice. Shopping List for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: - Bekotec-BRS foam edging - Bekotec foam panels - PEX tubing - Bekotec THERM-RH 75 PVC clamps - Sand and portland cement. Get enough for a 5:1 sand-to-cement ratio. Tools List for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: - 4-foot level - tape measure - breakaway knife - straightedge - pipe cutter - wheelbarrow or mixing tub for mixing concrete - shovel or hoe for mixing concrete Follow This Old House and Ask This Old House: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThisOldHouse Twitter: https://twitter.com/thisoldhouse https://twitter.com/asktoh Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/thisoldhouse/ G+: https://plus.google.com/+thisoldhouse/posts Instagram: http://instagram.com/thisoldhouse Tumblr: http://thisoldhouse.tumblr.com/

Cheap Heat for Van Living

This is the second in a series on how to heat your car, van or RV when you live in them. We began with spending a bunch of money and using up a bunch of room with either a MR. Heater Portable Buddy or an Olympian Wave Catalytic Heater. Today we look at another choice which is to use a Coleman 1-Burner Propane Stove for heat. I've been doing it for more than 15 years without any problem and I am going to continue to do so. However, this is going to be a "Do as I say, not as I do video!" Every safety expert will tell you using a propane stove for heat is dangerous, unsafe, and potentially fatal!! IT CAN KILL YOU!!! And, they are right!! So I do not recommend you do this, I can only tell you that I have weighed the risks for myself and I am willing to take the risks--YOU SHOULD NOT!!!

WORRY NO MORE!!! If you are fortunate enough to have a garage to work in, or any enclosed space for that matter, this video is really going to help you out!! Mr Heater Propane Forced-Air Heater ▶︎ http://amzn.to/2yXpKn9 ThermoPro Digital Thermometer & Hygrometer ▶︎ http://amzn.to/2hGj6dM I’ve used electric Infrared heaters (http://amzn.to/2jcwt5Q) to try to keep the garage warm and they do make a difference but not enough to make the garage comfortable to work in. After attempting that, I’ve used Kerosene heaters (http://amzn.to/2zW51mU), and they did a much better job at getting the garage multiple degrees warmer, however the draw back of that setup was that it got to be rather expensive and the air quality was very good. So I looked into other alternatives, and am happy to say this setup is SO MUCH BETTER and keeps the garage very warm without a large overhead cost. You can use a small tank such as a Barbecue Propane Tank, all the way up to something that is 5 times the size. The way I see it is that if you spend the money up front to buy a very large tank, you will have to get it filled up less, and when you do have to fill-up, it will be cheap since the more you buy, the cheaper it gets (per pound of propane). Since I recorded this video, I looked further into purchasing an infrared camera and I FOUND A DEAL for you guys!! So as you might know, there are some IR cameras that plug into your phone, and they're pretty sweet, but there's a deal on one right now, and using this discount code, you'll get 15% off, and shipped right to your door. So here's the IR camera I'm referring to (http://amzn.to/2zarnOn), and using this discount code, 15AMPROBEIRC, you will get 15% off until NOVEMBER 30TH, so get on it!!

What is the Cheapest Way to Heat a Home?
 
02:07
What is the cheapest way to heat a home? In theory, a wood stove is. You just pull in dead wood from the back yard or tear down decrepit buildings for fuel. But you don't think it is the cheapest. The EPA passed rules in 2014 that make wood stoves have to meet incredibly high particulate standards. That made the cost of new wood stoves skyrocket You can make a wood stove out of a metal barrel. But it isn't very efficient, and you have to be careful of the carbon monoxide it can put out. What's another cheap option? I suppose using all your pets as bed warmers isn't your first choice. Do you know how much pet food costs these days? You might want to consider natural gas heaters. You can even get a natural gas fire place. My mom's natural gas bill was higher than her electric bill a few years ago. Thanks to fracking, the cost of natural gas is coming down. It's becoming really cheap. Except for the risk of an exploding house. Or the water contamination. Fracking does not contaminate the water, but it does cause earthquakes. What's another option? Heating oil used to be cheap, but now it costs a fortune. And that was before the Polar Vortices crimped the market. I've heard of people using propane to heat their homes. Propane costs as much or more than heating oil. Actually, in many places, they are equally hard on the pocketbook. Then I'm down to electricity, but that's expensive. Get small room heaters to supplement the main electric heater, then use those for the rooms you're in instead of cranking up the heat for the whole house. I wish solar heating were practical, but that's almost as much of a joke as trudging outside to scrape the ice off the solar cells. Running your clothes dryer exhaust back into the house and letting the hot air from the stove heat up the kitchen after you've been baking are more practical than solar heating in today's winters.

How to Build a Heat Box for $6, Heat your Home Free
 
04:19
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.

Mini Split Cost to Run for Heating Season
 
06:10
Right now, about $4 per day since it's 30° outside. When its a little warmer or we set the stat back a few degrees, it drops to $1.80 per day. This is a follow up video to my original video describing my new mini split air source heat pump system. One of the most common questions was about operating costs, so I hooked up my energy monitor to it and measured the actual energy use. You can buy an energy monitor like the one I have at Amazon. One I can recommend is the Efergy which is about $99. http://www.amazon.com/dp/product/B003XOXU02/?&tag=g07de-20 I also wrote a blog post on my website about how to calculate and compare fuel costs using the Cost Per Million BTU charts that are also available on my site. http://greatlakeshomeperformance.com/how-much-cheaper-is-it-to-run-a-heat-pump-than-an-lp-boiler/

Living in a Tiny House Heated with FREE Solar Power in Canada
 
07:24
Gabriel Parent-Leblanc heats his tiny house with an awesome solar air heater. He built his tiny house to prove it was possible to live in a tiny house year round in a northern climate. Not only did he succeed (he's been living in it for almost 2 years) but he also has one of the smallest heating bills I've ever seen. In the winter of 2014/2015, which was one of the coldest in the last 100 years, he spent only $100 on heat thanks to his solar air heater panel which provided the bulk of his heat during the day. Gabriel built his own tiny house with the help of friends and also started the first tiny house company in Quebec, Canada: Habitations MicroÉvolution: http://www.habitationsmicro.com/ The solar air heater he uses is distributed by EcoSolaris and they're planning to release a new and improved model very soon (we filmed a video about it for you, coming soon!): http://www.ecosolaris.ca/en/products_and_services/solar-air-heating-system.php At night, Gabriel uses an electric heater that is plugged into an energy meter to track how much energy he uses for heat. This isn't the exact meter he used but it was something like this: https://www.amazon.com/UPM-Marketing-EM100-Energy-Display/dp/B000RKVK52 His tiny house design was focussed on creating a spacious and comfortable living room with a massive u-shaped sitting area that has the option to put up a table up to make it a dinette, or put down the table to make it an extra bed. He's also got a galley kitchen, a sleeping loft, storage loft, and small bathroom with a shower and composting toilet. The fact that Gabriel's house is run almost completely on solar power is pretty impressive. He's got 750 Watts on his roof that power the lights, fridge, water pump, and all of his electrical outlets; and his solar air heating panel provides a lot of his heating needs. While he is living almost completely off grid in a suburb of Montreal, one thing Gabriel does find challenging is his small water tank. It only holds 100 litres so he often has to re-fill it with a hose. With his metal roof he could probably install a rainwater catchment system to provide some of his water needs.
