What is the most eco friendly way to heat your home?

    In the famous words of Jimmy Carter, “put on a sweater.” Another thing you can do is cook dinner in the oven and hang out in the kitchen. Depending on the size of your house, you may want to just heat one small room and stay there most of the time. My boyfriend has an office lined with full bookshelves, which provide extra insulation, and uses a little space heater to get the room warm.

    Insulation is probably the cheapest way to heat your home and save money, and although it doesn’t actually generate heat, it instead traps the heat inside while keeping the cold out.  One way to do this is to tape some plastic wrap over all of the windows to prevent cold air from coming in.  Other simple ways to save money is to turn down the thermostat, which can save you up to 10 percent on heating bills.

    There are many, “less than conventional” ways to heat your home.  One way is to build a masonry stove.  This is a type of wood burning stove that incorporates a large thermal mass.  This thermal mass gives off heat over a long period of time.  Masonry stoves are very efficient for smaller homes.  You could even use broken up shipping pallets and your costs would be really low.  Another idea is solar or wind power to run your base heaters off of.
