Solar Hot Water and Heating Systems
In-floor heating is the cutting-edge technology for home and space heating. As with domestic hot water, in-floor heating can effectively be accomplished using solar thermal collectors as the heat source. Ideally suited to new building construction, in-floor heating brings new meaning to comfortable living. This is possible through uneven distribution - regulating the flow of heat to commonly used spaces allows for over-all energy savings.
For optimal energy savings, radiant floor heating can be regulated using Arc Solar’s heat distribution modules. These modules allow for temperature control in each individual room or space. When a room is in use, simply turn up the room’s thermostat. When leaving, turn it down to save heating an empty room! A minimum flow ensures that the room remains warm and ready to be heated to desired temperatures when occupied.
No more fights over being too hot or too cold! Simply adjust the temperature of the room, which you are in for individual comfort.
By reducing the heat load for heating un-used spaces, heating costs are dramatically reduced. This is especially true when the primary heating sources is solar.
This is especially true for basements, where traditional ceiling air vents do not distribute heat to where it is needed most – at floor level. In-floor heating heats the basement from the floor up. No more cold feet on cold floors! Using in-floor heating decreases heating loads, as heat is delivered to where it is most needed in a room - at floor level.

Hydronic Wood Furnace represents the latest innovation in wood
burning boilers. Based on a tested design developed more than 20
years ago, the Greenwood wood boiler is the most efficient, wood
burning boiler you can buy for your home. It is safe to operate,
creosote-free, and saves you up to 70% on your home heating
bills. Our wood boiler is also easy on the environment -- the fuel
you burn is a renewable resource and does not contribute to
global warming. Finally, the Greenwood hydronic wood furnace is
easy to install and works with a variety of heating systems and
