Greg Pahl, author of Natural Home Heating: The Complete Guide to Renewable Energy Options, knows a thing or two about weening your house off oil and the associated evils (expensive, dirty, etc.). He’s been working with renewable energy systems for over 20 years, and recently completed the transition of a 1950s tract home off of oil heat by installing a pellet boiler, a fireplace insert, and the solar domestic hot water system he explains in the video below.
If you’re looking to begin the journey to post-oil existance, a solar hot water system is a great place to start…even if you live in colder climates, as Greg will explain in the video.
