Energy independence is something you tend hear when talking about whole countries and their efforts to stop importing so much oil. However, for decades individual homeowners have been getting in on the act too, reducing the amount of fossil fuel they burn and/or electricity they pull from the grid. The idea is simple; to replace these external sources of energy with renewable energy that is generated on-site [...]

Solar heat pumps are high-efficiency home heating systems that have left energy enthusiasts dumbfounded that nobody invented them sooner. Solar heat pumps combine two proven technologies together (solar thermal panels and a heat pump), creating a home heating system greater than the sum of its parts. Most people are familiar with solar thermal panels (they capture heat from the sun for space or hot water heating), and even if you've never [...]

Many of you may already be familiar with Canada's Energuide rating system for homes. It's essentially a government operated rating system that determines how energy efficient your home is. It's a great resource, and something that is still probably underused by homeowners here in Canada. Back in my home country of Ireland, we have a similar evaluation system, albeit with one major change; if you're [...]
