If you want to save money on heating your home, there are many ways that you can reduce costs. Renewable energy from things like biomass, thermal storage and solar energy can help you save money on your heating. The system you use will depend on your needs and the type of heating you want to have installed in your home, such as biomass boilers for radiant heating. Here are some of the choices you have to integrate renewable energy into your home heating:
1. Using Biomass Boilers For Radiant Heating Solutions
Biomass boilers are a great solution for many different types of heating needs. These systems use organic waste materials as a fuel source, such as wood and pellets made for agricultural waste. These systems can provide your home with radiant heating, as well as hot water. They can also be affordable to expand heating to other areas of your home. You can even use a hydronic heat exchanger if you want to have central heating with a biomass boiler.
2. Geothermal Loops For Conventional HVAC Systems
Geothermal loops are another energy efficient solution that you may want to consider for your home. Geothermal systems can be used to provide your home with a more conventional central HVAC solution. These systems can help reduce the energy consumption of your heating and cooling, providing you with a more complete energy solution. There are also many different options for the geothermal loops that act as the heat exchanger, which can be installed vertically if major excavation costs are a concern.
3.Thermal Storage To Improve Energy Efficiency Of Heating
Your heating can also be improved with the use of thermal storage systems. This can be hot water storage tanks that store water from rooftop solar collectors. The hot water can then be used by conventional systems to reduce heating costs. If you have a geothermal system installed, it can also be designed to store energy in the ground loop to be used when you need heating for your home. Thermal storage can be combined with many types of heating systems to help reduce the heating costs of your home.
These are some of the choices you have to integrate renewable energy into your home's heating. If you are ready to have one of these systems installed, contact a heating and air conditioning contractor like Laroc Refrigeration-Metal Division and talk with them about the system that is right for you.
