Solar Home Heating Basics: A Green Energy Guide

By Dan Chiras, 192 pages

As fossil fuel supplies dwindle, home heating will be one of the major challenges in temperate and cold climates in the coming years. The reserves of natural gas used to heat the majority of North American buildings are rapidly being depleted. This latest Green Energy Guide helps readers who want to slash their energy bills and reduce their dependence on scarce resources to navigate the sometimes confusing maze of clean, reliable, and affordable options.

While most solar home heating resources are geared primarily towards new buildings, Solar Home Heating Basics focuses on renewable energy strategies to heat both new and existing homes and small businesses, making solar a reality for many people. These strategies include:

  • Energy efficiency, weatherization, and insulation
  • Solar hot air heating
  • Solar thermal systems
  • Passive solar heating
  • Backup heating systems
