Overview

Natural heating and cooling, ironically today is only considered an “alternative” to costly and complicated refrigeration cooling and fuel based heating by the mainstream society. However by incorporating some form of natural techniques into your new or existing building, you can eliminate or reduce the use and cost of mechanical cooling/heating and all of the hassle/harm that goes with it all together.

How can I cool AND heat my home with nature?

In many natural and passive methods, it’s not necessary to install separate heating and cooling systems, ducts, piping, etc. In order to save on costs, labor and time, often you can utilize the same natural system for both heating and cooling. Or better yet, if you already have a preexisting heating and/or cooling system, you may even be able to integrate it into your new natural system, saving even more money.

Meet the Author

Dan Martin lived 100% off-the-grid, completely cut-off from society. There were no electric lines, no telephone lines, no garbage or sewer service, no mail, no city water, no cell service, not even a road to the property. Dan built their home alone in the shape of an octagon without walls, completely open to the surrounding landscape so that they could live 'with' nature. They lived off rain water catchment, raised, bred and slaughtered goats, chickens, catfish, turkeys and ducks for food, made their own fuel and grew underground hydroponic fruits and vegetables.

Dan Martin became a consultant performing hundreds of similar sustainable living projects, teaching others about making their own renewable fuels and ways to harness alternative energies, along with building with natural materials and living independently. He has designed and overseen dozens of projects for governmental agencies as well as private corporations and overseas clients.
