Here you will find a brief description of the types of residential renewable home heating systems available for your home. For more detailed information on each renewable resource, please go to the 'See also' links at the bottom of the page.
On this page you will find sections on different types of residential renewable home heating systems:
Solar heating systems use the radiant heat (infra-red energy from the sun) to heat stored domestic water in your home. Solar heat can also be used to pre-heat your underfloor heating system.
If your solar heating system is powered by solar electric such as a photovoltaic system then you would have a 'zero carbon' solar heating system making it a totally green residential renewable home heating system.

All heat pumps provide efficient cost-effective residential renewable home heating.
Photovoltaic (PV) systems use solar cells to convert light into electrical energy. These cells are housed in modules that are placed in an array which you will know as solar panels. PV systems can be sized to provide all your electrical energy requirements or to just supplement them.
These system can be 'On Grid' meaning that you are still connected to the power grid, or 'Off Grid' stand alone systems that use batteries to store the energy for home use. Using a PV system to provide the power for heat pumps and solar heating systems translates into a completely green residential renewable home heating and power system.
Wind turbines harness the power of the wind to turn generators that produce electrical energy. However, these systems need the right amount of wind speed to be affective, greater the wind speed means increased power production.
Biofuel such as biodiesel can be used to run generators to supplement your power needs, heating with bio-technology. Biodiesel is obtained from vegetable oil and this makes it renewable. It is also carbon neutral meaning it does not add or take away from the overall amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere which is linked to the present climate changes. As with PV and wind turbines systems, using a power generator fueled with biodiesel can provide power for heat pumps in your home making it another green residential renewable home heating and power system.

Hi, My name is Shannon and I'm one of home-heating-systems-and-solutions.com readers. I'd like to thank you for the excellent information I've found on home-heating-systems-and-solutions.com, it's one of my favorite readings on the net. Warmest Regards Shannon United States
Thanks for the advice for removing an air lock from an indirect system. Had to change an inlet on my cistern. First time I have tried any home plumbing. After draining the cold tank system air locked when I refilled the tank. Garden hose and mains pressure up the tap sorted my problems. Would not have known what to do without the advice on the site. Many thanks Sean United Kingdom.
An excellent site. I have found it very usefull. I am currently in the design phase of a new house and have be pondering which heat system to use. From your site I have been able to choose the right system. Ross New Zealand
I enjoyed your site. Pat United States
