Finding a proper and low budget heating system for your home is not easy. To keep your investments low, you can make yourself a compost heating system. The method was invented in 1970 by a French farmer named Jean Pain. He used compost to heat his home and generate energy and he made the compost out of branches and saplings. Even though this method may seem unusual, it is one that actually works and will help you save some money during winter.
