Freedom Heating is a project based in the Northern Appalachians and New York Catskills, it's goal is the experimentation and implementation of free heat systems for indoor spaces by utilizing the energy created in carbon-nitrogen combustion reactions found inside organic breakdown.
The project is small and in it's infancy. Any help is welcome. No information is proprietary, this is free heat, not a gimmick. Love is gonna find a way, look around. Estimated time for implemntation of an average system is 2 days for a heat reaction to begin. Maintenance and addition of material is required just like a stove, but much less frequently (estimated to be every three days or so, 20 minutes of work)
Real world experience.
Outcomes so far:
Cansolair style heat system, easily availble in any area where people drink soda or beer. can be morphed into and combined with the technology of a compost pile system. The cans can be heated by hot waterm as well as sun. Can also combine it with the idea of a solar oven, to add additional light into the heater.
Moving forward through this project saw many obstacles arise, Litttle work was done at first because of low funding, which actually worked out in the end because it required more ingenuity to complete the goal. The end product is now a set of solutions for home heating that are cheap, and easy.
Sources of funding:
Resources coming in from Stantec Engineering out of NYC, who are providing cans from their recycling to help build a Cansolair style heater on the east coast. Cans will also be collected in Chicago for building a design in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
Sources of materials:
mother earth, everywhere.
The goal is to create free heating system demonstration site during the winter of 2010-11, implementing various real world apps on a handful of demonstration sites, and testing them through all weather conditions this winter. The project makes use of permaculture method known as stacking functions, because of it having multiple outputs to it's system, not simply...heat.
