Core Heat And Other Concepts

  In some places the use of solar heated liquids from hot water solar panels are used to provide heating for floors which are fitted with tubing in the floor to move the heated liquid through.  Heated liquid from hot water solar panels can also be sent to registers or radiators in remote places in a home such as its core.   Another innovative way that heated liquids can be used is to move the liquid into a thermal mass in the core of the building for slow application of the heat to the…See More

 Subtitle: "A Good Way To Introduce Green Building On A Mass Scale"Here is a tiny house of around 800 square feet that sports some of the better concepts in energy efficiency along with solar heating.  With design devoted to lowering the energy signature of the structure it does not take much in terms of energy to run such a home.  Yet the home can have two bedrooms and a laundry room although such rooms as the living room and dining area may end up small, however one of the bed rooms can be…See More

Amazing Energy-Generating Buildings for the 2017 Astana World Expo (?)



  As interesting as the above vision is, we have to ask our selves if the cost of construction to realize the artistic vision of this building, will in any wise be recovered by its projected energy generation capabilities?  For the most part I can see a need for lots of interior cooling and have to ask where the source or power for this is coming from? …
