Free Energy Blog:2014:01:31 - The goal here is to take three proven technologies and combine them. To prove it works.... and publish plans, designs, findings and video about them. Then to build a few units (about ) for the community. ... (Free Energy Blog January 31, 2014)
Energy Smart Heating - Energy Cabins are self contained heating systems that combine solar energy with wood pellet technology for total central heating for any building. They are fully automatic in operation and can slash your heating bills by up to 50%. (EcoGeek Sep. 14, 2007)
New Biomass Heater: a “New Era” of Efficiency and Sustainability - Millions of homes in rural areas of Far Eastern countries are heated by charcoal burned on small, hibachi-style portable grills. Scientists in Japan are now reporting development of an improved “biomass charcoal combustion heater” that they say could open a new era in sustainable and ultra-high efficiency home heating. (Newswise Feb. 11, 2009)
Sidel Systems - Natural gas fired equipment such as boilers, water heaters, dryers, and furnaces exhaust 15-20% of the fuel energy in the flue gas. The SRU Condensing Waste Heat Recovery unit is designed to recover almost all of this heat, normally lost to the atmosphere, with fuel savings of 10-15%.
Martin Air Systems - Restaurant kitchen exhaust waste heat recovery system is used to heat the restaurant and preheat the hot water. By preheating the air as it comes in, gas consumption will typically decline by 30%-40% and some electrical savings are realized as well.

THERMALATOR® I - Improve the efficiency of your older natural gas furnace by shortening the burn cycle. Shows reductions of 24 to 32% in natural gas burning. Puts most old furnaces into the mid-efficiency range. With most pilot-light type furnaces, the thermostat will turn on the burners for a burn cycle that varies from 9-13 minutes. The furnace heat exchangers will saturate with heat in 2 minutes, then can only absorb about 15% of the heat produced by the burners. 85% of the heat produced after the saturation point goes up the chimney. This repeat cycle timer has a 3 minute on and 3 minute off cycle for the burners. The furnace fan continues to blow during the off cycle. Modern thermostats with adjustable heating cycle length (sometimes called adjustable anticipation) can also do this.
The Greenwood Furnace Greenwood Furnaces are an 85% efficient clean burning, wood-fired furnace that heats an entire home and all hot water leaving very few particles for smoke, creosote or ash. They tie to an existing or new heating system and save up to 70% on heating bills.
