We recently came across an article highlighting how Colorado’s most energy efficient home is heated, and found it fascinating. Reliably heating a very small space can be surprisingly challenging. The heating method and source needs to be reliable, consistent, safe, and not over heat the space. One builder faced this challenge head on with fantastic results. Have a look at their story and how they provided the perfect solution. How do you design a heating system for a home that uses barely any heat?
