This paper studies a newly heating system applied in rural residences in order to improve the thermal environment comfort and the reliability of this system. Propose an integrated heating system with solar energy, capillary network and phase change energy storage technology in it, comparing the orthodox heating system mode with this newly heating system method. Then makes a simulation analysis to this integrated heating system with FLUENT software. The results shows that this integrated heating system can make the indoor temperature distribute uniform, offer better thermal comfort as well as reduce commercial energy consumption in rural houses. This combined heating system can lay a fundamental to the further study of integrated heating system in rural residences and seek for a reasonable method to the renewable of rural residential heating technology.
