Picking Up the Pieces After a Flood

Dealing with serious flood damage at home is not the end of the world. And most importantly, it does not have to cost you an arm and a leg to get your home back into living condition again. In fact, you may find (like I did) that recovering from a flood gives you an opportunity to improve the look and feel of your home overall, and even to implement design options that increase the value of your property. I spent about a year fixing up my place after a pipe exploded while I was on vacation, and literally ruined everything inside from the flooring and walls, to my photos and important paperwork. So, I figured I could help others "pick up the pieces" and create a bigger ad better lifestyle at home by turning a flood situation into an opportunity, instead of dealing with it like a crisis.

4 Solutions For Affordable Heating Using A Biomass Boiler System

by Scott Gordon

Biomass heating systems can be a great solution to bring down the cost of heating your home. They are commonly used with radiant heating systems, but they can also be used for other solutions, such as district heating and central HVAC. You can even combine your biomass boiler with geothermal or solar energy. Here are some of the solutions that you may want to consider for the installation of your biomass boiler:

1.Using A Biomass Boiler For Conventional Radiant Heating And Hot Water    

One of the most common uses of a biomass boiler is for conventional radiant heating systems. This can be done with a system that uses firewood or pellet fuel materials. You can also choose from indoor systems, and boilers that can be located outdoors. You can also use the boiler as one source of energy for heating your home and hot water.

2. Adding A Heating Exchanger For Central HVAC With Your Boiler

When you think about a boiler, you may not be considering conventional central HVAC systems. With the addition of a heat exchanger, you can also use your boiler for a central HVAC solution. This can even be an energy efficient solution for homes in mild climates with a short cold season and minimal heating needs.

3. Using Biomass Boiler For A District Heating System For Homesteads

If you have a large homestead, you may need a heating solution for more than just your home. The biomass boiler you have installed can be used as a district heating solution. It can provide heating to your home, as well as to additional structures like shops, barns and greenhouses. An outdoor boiler that uses firewood and organic waste fuels can be a great solution for this type of application.

4. Integrating Renewable Energy Systems With A Biomass Boiler

Another solution that you may want to consider for your biomass boiler is renewable energy. This can come from many different sources, such as solar energy. A solar water heater can be used to supply thermal energy to your boiler to reduce energy consumption. Geothermal loops can also be used to help reduce the energy needs of your heating systems.

These are some of the solutions that you may want to consider for heating with a new biomass boiler. If you are ready for a new affordable heating solution for your home, contact a heating service and talk with them about installing a biomass furnace replacement system for your home.
