Gabriel Parent-Leblanc from Habitations MicroÉvolution built his gorgeous tiny house on wheels to show it was possible to live in a tiny house, year round, in a northern climate. He’s now spending his third winter in his tiny house near Montreal, Quebec and not only is he surviving and staying warm, he’s also saving a ton of money by heating the house with a solar air heater (EcoSolaris is working on a new model of the panel, coming soon!).
During the day, his heat comes almost exclusively from the panel he installed on the side of his house that cycles indoor air through the solar heated panel and back into the house. On cloudy days and at night he uses an electric heater. By tracking the energy consumption of his electric heater with an energy meter, he was able to calculate that his heating bill for one whole winter was only $100!
He’s also got 750 Watts of solar power on his roof that power a full-sized fridge, as well as his computer, lights, water pump and other small electronics.
Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!
