Bummer: Homeowners Find That “Green” Heating Units Fail In The Cold

But, hey, that means that these people are even more Hotcoldwetdry responsible, since they aren’t wasting energy!

(WRAL) During February’s bitter chill, some Chapel Hill homeowners found that the homes they bought with the environment in mind could not keep up. Their brand-new heating systems suddenly stopped working when it got too cold!

At first the complaints were a trickle, but 5 On Your Side discovered the problem could end up affecting thousands of homeowners.

The “green” furnaces called 90 percent energy efficient are installed in most new homes and are a top choice for those who are replacing their furnace. They’ve become a big problem for some homebuyers in the Triangle’s largest all-green community, Chatham County’s Briar Chapel.

The units essentially froze. The solution was to pour hot water on the pipes, per the builders. And other crazy things. Yet, the units still froze up. It gets totally wonky in the article, which you should read.

Of course, it could be that the units were not installed properly, rather than being pieces of “green” garbage. We can also thank the politicians who force these types of “green” homes.

    It’s not Green to be heating your house with fossil fuels. Throw some extra hemp blankets on your reclaimed wood beds and snuggle closer to your hairy-legged soy-flatulent wife.

    Most everything the green extremists try to improve blows up in their delusional faces.

    They’ve screwed up washing machines, toilets, dish detergent, lighting and more.

    The dirty little secret being that they don’t really give a damn about the planet, as we see by their very own behavior. They just get off on controlling everyone else’s lives.

    There’s a talk show guy named Jim Quinn, who says “liberal policies always generate the exact opposite of their intended goals”. Here is ANOTHER example of their stupidity. Liberals have replaced God with the belief in their idiotic policies. The whole forced light bulb thing has me furious, but the failed heaters are pure comedy!
