  From Newfoundland to south spain

Northern Canada,rough climate, very cold winter. This are the weather conditions at 48 degree north without warm water heating from the Gulf Stream. A possible climate for Europe. Or maybe is an other theory correct, that the summers will be in middle Europe often as warm and dry as in 2003?

To built in middle Europe a house for every possible future means, lowest energy usage for the air conditon in a hot summer. Rainwater storage vor 3 month drought, heating system strong enough for -40 degree Celsios an a roof construction for unusual big quantities of snow. Practical a house suitable for southern spain up the norther part of Canada

  2006 hause construction and the climate question

Built for the future. Many new buildings from the present will be in a short time, long time before installment is paid, an expensive renovation case.

Sun instead of wood Sun instead of wood
One day after the news about the pellets shortage, measurements at 9 and 12 am. How much solar energy at this cloudy March 14th? Who is more secure.

Heat pump arguments
Well carried out in a good insulated house with heat recovery ventilation the most efficient method to save energy at heating and warm water production.
