It is possible to build a private house where no electricity is used.
As with the Non-Electric Car also a non-electric house would need compressed air to run things. Needed light would be generated with a kerosene lamp and it would distributed with optical fiber.
Compressed air could be created with a diesel engine or a wind mill.
There are several ways to produce heat energy like: a geothermal heat pump, a air source heat pump, a solar water heater, using heat from a diesel engine, burning liquid or gaseous fuels etc. Heat pumps could also be used for cooling.
Home appliances & functions
How we can change electric home appliances to non-electric home appliances? We can use following things to do that:
- compressed air
- warm or cool water
- liquid or gaseous fuel burners
- light from optical fiber
Optical computers and circuits are NOT needed
|Compressed air||Warm or cool water||Liquid or gaseous fuel burners (in a equipment)||Light from optical fiber|
|Small domestic appliances (no heating)||X|
|Small domestic appliances (heating)||X||X|
|Heating (of a house)||X (pumping)||X|
We also would need optical computers and circuits. This is under development in many places but we can't be sure if it ever would work without electricity. Link

Compressed air and light are used to create loudspeaker. To make this it would be needed a componet that uses light to control compressed air to create sound. It would be like a transistor. I have no idea how to build it. To build a microphone same thing would be needed opposite way.
If it is possible crete optical computers that would not use electricity, I assume it would also be possible to create a TV, an audio system and a landline telephone with same technology. The TV would mean a fiber cable TV only.
It's not possible build these without any electronic part or at least the result would be unpractical (wireless remore control):
- Microwave oven
- Cell phone
- Remore control (wireless)
