The History of Home Heating

The History of Home Heating infographic

Fun timeline of The History of Home Heating infographic by global home improvements. See how far we’ve come in home heating and the plans for the future. With the current heating technologies, we could reduce the harm that we are doing to the planet.

This is mostly a visual explanation using illustrations, but does a good job of clearly telling the story to the readers with the sequence of evolving heating images.  The isometric, video-game style illustrations draw in the reader and make the information more engaging and interesting to read.

Thanks to David for sending in the link!

As the home progresses the heating progresses. It's pretty nice to know that we live better than all of the kings of the world in the early history of this world! And that's partially because of home heating systems.

I never really thought about the evolution of how humans have heated our homes. I am just happy that I have the technology to heat my home in minutes instead of hours or days. It is awesome in the winter when it is snowing outside.

I didn't know there was such a history to heating homes. I always thought people would start a fire and their house would be warm. I'm glad that we've moved past that because I don't know if I could start a fire everyday in my house.

I'm remembering my grandparents small house in Toledo OH during the early 1940s. They had a room between the living room and kitchen that housed a large upright coal burning furnace that I seem to remember as being cast iron frame and legs and was skinned with fire glass tiles. It was hot to walk past it and you could never touch it because it was seriously hot.

Any idea what kind of furnace this might have been?
