The Alaska Consumer Guide to Home Heating

Project Page

CCHRC researchers recently completed a guide that walks consumers through different types of home heating systems. The in-depth publication, created for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, covers heating appliances, distribution systems, and control systems that are common in Alaska. It provides information and tools to help homeowners make informed decisions on heating appliances.
