Mud and Paul (and Andres) are keen to make an infographic about home heat choices.  Across the top will be types of heat.  And down the left side will be attributes/metrics.  With each metric will be a link to a thread that will act as a source for that row of information in the infographic.  Or, hopefully, a bit of a bibliography.  This thread is one of those threads.

Paul thinks that this work is so very critically important that he wanted to see if by starting these threads, the work can get started.  He very much hopes that you all will add to this effort so that we might be done in a tenth of the time than if it were just him and Mud working on it.


All of the metrics for all of infographic is focused on "average for Montana".  Keeping in mind that the average Montana home is 2000 square feet.

Here is the working thread of all the data collected: https://permies.com/wiki/204534/creating-heat-infographic

The row for this thread is can you build this yourself and will contain data for the following types of heating systems:



Electric Baseboard - unlikely; installation requires DIY level 4




Mini Splits - unlikely; installation requires DIY level 5




In Ground Heat Pump - very unlikely; installation requires DIY level 8




Central Natural Gas Furnace - not allowed




Central Propane Furnace - unlikely; installation requires DIY level 6




Pellet Stove - probably; installation requires DIY level 3




Wood Stove - probably; installation requires DIY level 3




Modern wood stove - probably; installation requires DIY level 3




Masonry Heater - unlikely; build requires DIY level 6




Rocket Mass Heater - easy; build requires DIY level 2, and vertical exhaust DIY level 3

 
The longest recorded flight time of a chicken is 13 seconds. But that was done without this tiny ad:
