      @matty0506, good question. Do you have a stream beside your house?

      You could install a small hydro-electric turbine. This will generate electricity from the water flow. You can use the electricity to power an electric heater.

      But do you think it is better to use a gas boiler to heat your house and use the electricity for lighting or other things in your house? Think about it and ask me again if you ant to know the answer…
