This video introduces an excellent principle of energy efficiency so it is well worth a look – with the right climate and conditions you could save a lot on your household bills.
If you’re already thinking of installing a new greenhouse on your property, there is now a really good reason to consider attaching it to your house, preferably on the south side if that’s possible. If you have one already (sometimes called a conservatory) all you need to do is to install fans to vent the warm air into your house when the sun is shining.
A greenhouse often generates too much heat, which would normally have to be vented outside so it can easily be moved through your house instead. Frugal Green Girl also explains how venting air from your greenhouse to your house and vice versa will improve the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide for both you and your plants – she also explains how to use the greenhouse to heat clean air that comes in from outside.
The idea of passive solar heating is well-established. In simple terms, when a house is built with “passive solar design” it uses more, larger windows on the south-facing (sunny) side than on the north-facing side. Some areas are making good use of this idea in new developments but the greenhouse idea takes it a step further.
It would also possible to store the heat from a greenhouse using water tanks and then a heat exchanger to warm the air for night time – this idea would be even more efficient as the heat can be released when it’s needed the most.
There’s a small correction to the “science bit” that she explains: Transpiration is the process by which plants lose water vapour into the air or atmosphere, not linked to removing chemical toxins, but it is true that some houseplants will clean common toxins from the air, this has been studied by Dr. B.C. Wolverton and written up in his book “How to Grow Fresh Air”, with a list of 50 such plants.
Ok, here’s the video:

I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
