As winter arrives, so do alternative heating sources
With winter just around the corner, the mercury is dropping fast and snowflakes will be falling soon. The furnaces will be firing up soon as well. How will you heat your home this winter? Aside from traditional sources like gas and oil-fired furnaces, alternative heating systems that use less energy are becoming more popular.
ProudGreenHome recently wrote about a homein the Northeast that is so tight, it only relies on ceiling fans with heat coils for sporadic heating needs during the winter.
ProudGreenHome blogger Christine Brun has another suggestion. One of her recent blogs talks about the benefits of wood burning stoves, especially the high efficiency models that burn wood or pellets with very little heat loss.
