How to Heat Your Home in an Eco-Friendly Way

Creating a heating system for your home is one of the most important aspects you have to consider, but also the most expensive and damaging for the environment. If you are concerned about your effects on nature and you want to protect it as much as you can, you can choose to heat your house with Eco-friendly systems and here are some of the most efficient and reliable ones.

Use an infrared heater

The infrared heater is one of the most environmentally-friendly heaters that provide efficient heat without damaging the environment. This type of heater requires less power to create a warmth similar to the sun rays, meaning there are no harmful emissions released into the air. Unlike other heaters that heat the air, the infrared heater emits waves of heat that are absorbed by the bodies and objects, which results in a lasting feeling of warmth and warm to touch objects. The infrared heaters come in a wide range of shapes and sizes that suit any room of your house and can be successfully used both indoors and outdoors.

Opt for the innovative biomass

Biomass is a type of heating that uses wood material and although you may think this is a source of carbon monoxide, you should know it’s not. The main reason for biomass to be considered a carbon neutral fuel is that the pellets or the wood chips used for burning are produced through short rotation copping and quick growing. This results in a short amount of carbon monoxide release that is almost equal to the amount used by the plants during the growing process. The biomass burning can be used to heat one room at a time by using a single stove or you can build a centralized heating system by connecting a biomass boiler with a hot water tank and radiators for each room of your house.

Install solar panels on your house

If your house is positioned in such way that it receives constant sunlight even during the cold season, you can opt for a solar heating system. This type of system consists of several solar panels installed on the roof, panels that absorb heat from the sun and use it to warm the air in your house. Being one of the cheapest forms of sustainable energy, the solar heating system is used on many house and it can either be manufactured or built at home. Besides heating the air, the solar panels can also be used to provide hot water, thus reducing the costs of using an electric boiler.
