Guest Post: Alternative Heating Systems Should Be Given a Chance!


Give alternative heating systems a chance; put biomass to work for your comfort

Protection and comfort are two important concepts that are highly appreciated in today’s world. As they grow up, people seek to build their lives according to certain standards and commodities that will not only assure their well-being, but also help the environment.

The most popular technologies that contribute to creating this stability are of course the heating systems also known under the acronym of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). An efficient central heating system can use a radiator or a modern new boiler in its construction. These will make sure that the owner can enjoy the benefits of thermal comfort at any moment of the day.

A number of HVAC systems feature an efficient central heating system that is both useful and green. Taking into account that the evolution of home improvement has meant the environment has sometimes been victimized by our advances. HVAC technologies have sometimes been harsh on the environment.

It is important for everyone to understand that changing their old heating device with a modern new boiler that uses green energy is not only easy, it can be truly green. It stands in anyone’s power to change the future with a simple choice that will not only contribute to nature’s protection, but also proves to be very cheap.

An interesting fact is that a gallon of fuel releases 20 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air, thus if one person would use the solar, wind or any type of alternative energy to enjoy a daily supply of heat or water, everyone would be breathing a cleaner air. A substitute for petrochemical fuels can be found in biomass, a natural and renewable source of energy that does not put anything to waste.

To elaborate, biomass is the energy that comes mainly from living things like trees and plants. These store energy from the sun that can be further transformed into heating energy. A biomass system produces significantly less carbon dioxide than some fuels and costs less. Studies have shown the possibility of reducing heating costs by up to 50 percent. Who would refuse to pay less and contribute to the protection of the environment?

As in any other problem, the responsibility of staying friendly to the environment is a matter of choice, not money, power or extreme skills. Anyone can invest in changing their old boilers or furnaces with more modern and definitely less harmful alternatives.

Health should also come first and everyone should see this. By starting to take initiative, people not only contribute to their own well-being, but also provide a role model for those who are unaware of the environmental or health consequences of their acts. A single tree is the perfect example that destruction can happen in a matter of minutes, while planting a tree and creating something durable takes years.

Change starts from within and anyone can do it!

    Pellet stoves are a great idea! I’ve been looking into some alternative heating solutions for my house as a back up to traditional heat. I like the idea of stoves because of the low cost of heating. Would you recommend getting one for each individual room, or would 1 per floor suffice?
