jtown: Thanks for the Meme-ries: What a Hot Body may look like:[i291.photobucket.com image 752x1111]It works! My temperature just went up.
MrSteve007: While it isn't quite up to passive house standards, my 1,000 sq.ft. house only requires some 6,000 BTU of heat to maintain a comfortable 73 degrees, down to about 7 degrees below freezing outside.It's amazing what R-60 worth of insulation in the ceiling and R-40 in the floors, along with detailed air sealing can do for your utility costs. Toss in a mini-split heat pump, heat pump water heater, energy recovery ventilator and 3.8KW of solar panels, and you have yourself a self sufficient home, that is largely heated by the television and the body heat of the occupants./I love my house.
ThrobblefootSpectre: LewDux: "However, these statistics are by some considered misleading since most people are automatically registered as members of the Church of Iceland"Ah, now that I didn't know. Automatically by who? The government?
Eddie Adams from Torrance: Amateurs.In New York City, the body heat from our rats keeps the stations at a balmy 82 degrees.
fusillade762: [aihndigitalimagingiisummer2010.wikispaces.com image 562x239]How do you say "Coppertop" in French?
lelio: This reminds me of a guy on sharktank that pitched his reusing of clothes dryer air for heating the house. Yeah it works if you want really humid air.
Smeggy Smurf: duffblue: Would Iceland's way of heating their buildings work over in the States?You mean like half of downtown Boise uses? One of the most conservative cities in the country and we're using geothermal to heavily that they can't use any more. You bet your ass we'll rape Mother Earth and use her warm, juicy insides to keep us warm and do it on the cheap.
Amos Quito: Sasquach: You'd likely need to light yourself on fire to output 25,000 BTU....though 2500 is reasonably possible for periods of very heavy output.../the more you know//Sunday night buzzkill...How much is that in French thermal units?
CthulhuCalling: IWood: fusillade762: [aihndigitalimagingiisummer2010.wikispaces.com image 562x239]How do you say "Coppertop" in French?If you've got "a form of fusion" YOU DON'T NEED TO HARVEST FARKING BODIES, YA CYBERNETIC JACKWAGONS!i always held that they harvested energy from people as a form of punishment and to keep people from doing things like trying to kill the machines./my idea makes more sense than matrix 2 and 3
