The freewatt® home heating system operates using micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) technology, which marries an Energy Star-rated, high-efficiency gas furnace or boiler to a Honda generator. It generates 1.2 kW of electric power (it can produce nearly 5,000 kW of electricity each year) and nearly all the heat created by the generator is then recycled to heat the home. This electricity can be used to power the home or can be sold back to a utility company. According to the manufacturer, utilizing freewatt may also help residential projects qualify for points under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Homes Rating System.

ECR International, 2201 Dwyer Ave., Utica, NY 13501; 315-797-1310; 315-797-3762 (fax); info@ecrinternational.com; www.freewatt.com
