How to heat your home ecologically?

Modern technology allows not only to build an energy-efficient house, but also

also ecological. Conscious care for the natural environment has already become a permanent feature in

the minds of many people. This is why many people choose ecological heating methods

home. What are the types of ecological heating?


How to heat a house ecologically?

One of the first proposals that involves expensive installation. However, it is possible

reimbursement in two ways. Some of the money can be recovered by applying for

co-financing from EU funds. The other part of the money will be returned along with

reducing heating bills.

There are several types of heat pumps to choose from, which are based on:

● air - however, you must remember to connect it to a balanced one

source of electricity, gas or fuel, thanks to which air heating will be able to

the right way to pass the exam.

● groundwater - there is a requirement to build two water reservoirs

(wells). The exceptions are situations when there are e.g. ponds on a given property.

The heat pump will draw groundwater from one tank and the other to the other

dispose of water that has already been used.

● ground - the pipe system must be placed approx. 1 m underground.

The whole will be a collector that will "give up" heat from the ground.

Biomass - ecological fuel

This is an offer for people whose buildings are equipped with combustion heating systems.

Instead of coal, biomass, which has long been considered an ecological fuel. Down

There are several types of such fuels to choose from. We are talking about:

● pellets - compressed wood processing waste;

● straw briquettes;

● gas;

● wood gas.

However, it must be remembered that special types of furnace are needed for biomass to work

put into use permanently. Biomass is based entirely on natural raw materials. This

that is why during its combustion, the carbon dioxide emission is so low.

Energy from the sun

When it comes to ecological ways to heat your home, you can't forget about renewable energy. Down

this group includes the sun, which powers the solar panels. Modern installation

photovoltaic is able to draw from the sun even in the case of exceptionally cloudy

days. Except that in this case the consumption will be lower - than in the case of solar

days. Solar panels, also called a mini power plant, are able to provide free

electricity, heat water and support domestic heating sources. In this case, however

proper insulation of the entire building is also important.

Electric, ecological home heating

That is, heating foils that are gaining in popularity every year. In many cases

it is currently considered as an additional source of heating. However, there is a chance

that this will change over time.

Heating foils have the advantage that they cause even heat distribution throughout the house.

To this should be added low operating costs and complete maintenance-free. They are not

also difficult to assemble. They are also appreciated for the fact that there is a possibility of customization

them to the individual needs of the investor. We are talking here, among others on aspects such as:

adjusting the power of the installation to the spatial conditions.

Ideally, the heating foil will be installed in new homes. Thanks to this

you gain a chance to spread the film evenly on the floor. Properly made

the floor will actually become a huge radiator. You can run on the floor

barefoot - which parents of small children will surely enjoy. Also worth mentioning

about the fact that it is the form of heating that does not cause excessive drying


It can also be not only ecological heating for the house, but also completely

free. However, this requires connecting the system to a photovoltaic installation, which is

will generate electricity on its own. Both systems will complement each other

guaranteeing complete failure-free operation and low (in some cases almost

zero) heating and electricity bills.
