The Greenest Ways to Heat Your Home

Heating costs can be astronomical during the chilly months here in the Midwest. If you want to live in a greener home, the efficiency of your heating and cooling system is the most important factor.

Geothermal According to Energy Star, geothermal heating is greenest, most energy efficient way to heat your home.

- A geothermal heating system is installed underneath your home and uses the earth's heat to heat your home.

While geothermal systems are quite pricey upfront, they do pay for themselves within 8 years and ups the resale value of your home.

Solar Solar heating is also one of the most energy-efficient solutions for home heating. Once you make the initial investment, you'll essentially have the ability to heat your home for life at no additional cost.

-You have two options when it comes to solar. One heats liquid in a hydronic collector while the other heats air. The decision is usually based upon what type of heating system you already have.
