In my mission to be more self sufficient on our urban homestead, I am always in search of ways to take advantage of what God has provided us with, free of charge. Today, that form of hand-out is solar heat. In consideration of heat for my new gun shop, I toyed with several ideas… wood, kerosene, and propane were my first choices, and then I thought maybe I should experiment with solar thermal. I did some research on solar thermal heat and then added my own common sense thinking to come up with this new solar thermal heat collector. My total cost was about $120 bucks and a day and a half worth of work. Hope you enjoy! Please show your support of Heritage Pride Custom Firearms by rating and subscribing! Thanks!

Homemade Solar Air Heater! - The "Screen Absorber" Solar Air Heater!. Easy DIY. Produces temps near 140F (with outdoor air in the mid 40's). design of collector is similar to the steel can/aluminum can solar air heater but uses a "screen absorber plate" instead of the cans. video is a full tutorial with step by step instructions. how it works: outside air enters the collector at the bottom through several entrance vents. it then raises up through the collector (passing over, under and through the screen absorber plate along the way. when it reaches the top it's pulled out by a small fan through an exit vent. bottom piece of internal frame acts as a baffle which helps to spread out the airflow. short list of item sizes/dimensions: outer frame: One (1x4) cut down into Two 33 3/4" pieces and Two 20 1/4" pieces. inner frame: One (2x2) cut down into Two 26" pieces and Two 15" pieces. glass (plexi-Glas) used is 20" by 32" (always build your collector around the glass you have available). dimension of backing 33 3/4" by 21 3/4". hardware used: Twelve #8 3/4" wood screws for the backing. Eight #8 1 3/4" wood screws for the outer frame. Four #12 2 1/2" wood screws for the internal frame. vent tube is a 3" dryer hose (expands up to 8 feet). collector is painted with flat black paint. seal up the collector appropriately to match your local climate conditions (using weather stripping, caulk etc.). final thoughts... experiments suggest that a "dual layer" screen absorber plate works the best (single layer and triple layers of screen tend to produce slightly lower temps). *i recommend keeping the entrance vent "cutouts". those can be reinserted to adjust airflow (which could potentially raise/lower output temps - will do additional experiments). i experimented with putting the screen absorber at an angle inside collector but angling it did not produce higher temps. (*note that using no screen at all (just a black box) will significantly reduce output temps - they dropped down an average of 20-30F (couldn't get above 109.5F without the screen assembly)

Our climate is changing so it is ever more important to manage heating and cooling in your home. This passive heater will save you money, too! Build this window heater that uses the suns energy to heat your home or garage in the winter. No more drilling holes through the wall or rigging power hungry fans to blow air through your solar heater. This heater uses a thermosiphon effect to pull in room temperature (cold) air as it expels hot air into the room.

Does solar thermal work in very cold temperatures? there is heat in cold temperatures? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB8disMi3A8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBu9bhWpkRQ A solar thermal collector is a solar collector designed to collect heat by absorbing sunlight. A collector is a device for converting the energy in sunlight, or solar radiation, into a more usable or storable form. This energy is in the form of electromagnetic radiation from the infrared (long) to the ultraviolet (short) wavelengths. The quantity of solar energy striking the Earth's surface averages about 1,000 watts per square meter under clear skies, depending upon weather conditions, location, and orientation of the surface. The term solar collector refers to solar hot water panels, but may also refer to more complex installations such as solar parabolic apparatus, solar troughs, and solar towers; or less complex installations such as solar air heat. Solar power plants usually use the more complex collectors to generate electricity by heating water to produce steam which drives a turbine connected to an electrical generator. The less complex collectors are typically used in residential and commercial buildings for supplemental space heating. perpendicular to the sun's rays.

I made these solar heaters only to measure their energy parameters, and first I made this variant from a cheap polyethylene pipe. Then I measured the energy parameters of this second variant which is characterized in that its pipes lie on a black surface. This is my third variant which is similar to the first variant, but with large gaps between adjacent pipes. Then I tested this fourth variant, and we see the large gaps between its pipes, like the third variant, but the pipes lie on a black surface, and its north side has thermal insulation. The main results of my tests are described by these graphs and tables which will be explained throughout this video. Certainly, I continue my tests but with these more advanced variants, however these solar heaters with glass or other transparent covering will be described by my other future videos. So, this video will describe only these four variants of my heaters, and I remind you that Youtube has a lot of videos of other people which describe the design of similar solar heaters and methods of their manufacture, and they usually recommend using such heaters for heating water of a pool or shower. This is my measurement of the energy parameters of my four variants of the cheap solar heaters, and I want to clarify that I used such cheap polyethylene pipe with an outer diameter of 16 millimeters and a wall thickness of almost 2 millimeters. The Ukrainian prices of my cheapest pipe are about 15 American cents per meter, and we can calculate that complete covering each square meter by this pipe is about 10 dollars. In addition, I painted my pipes, and now this half of the solar heater is already covered in black paint which increases the efficiency of the heater and protects the plastic from ultraviolet solar radiation. So, square meter of our solar heaters is about 10 times cheaper than these traditional solar collectors, but we can see that their energy parameters noticeably better than our solar heaters, and therefore our square meter will produce significantly less heat, and this is due to the fact that our black pipes do not cover the whole surface of the heaters. For example, the pipes cover only 66 percent of the surface of my second variant because we see small gaps between adjacent pipes, and these areas are not covered by the pipes, and I want to clarify that the coverage area is the multiplication of the pipe length by its outer diameter. The length of the pipes of my fourth variant is even 2 times smaller, and they cover only 33% of the surface of the heater. My first variant is covered with pipes by 73% if we think that this square is the area of the heater, and this is a fair idea if we remember how neighboring heaters are placed. The area of the third variant of my heater is covered with the pipes only by 37%. This table shows the heat production of one square meter of my four variants of the heaters during an absolutely sunny day in Europe, the United States and India when they heat swimming pool water with a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. It is interesting to compare our heat production with these more durable and expensive solar pool heaters, and we see that one square meter of an expensive heater produces significantly more heat, but our square meter is 5 or 10 times cheaper, and therefore our heaters can make economic sense if we do not have a deficit of space for the location of our solar heaters. In addition, we can remember that such heaters are sometimes used for a primitive shower, and now we see that the sun has heated the water inside the black pipes of my heater to 67 degrees Celsius when the temperature of the ambient air was 28 degrees. Now I remind you of a more convenient system of hot water supply when these solar collectors heat the water of this tank, but we see that this my system has a different type of solar heaters, and I will describe these heaters in my future videos when I finish their technical tests. This is a similar table of heat production of four variants of our solar heaters if they must keep the temperature of hot water tank at 60 degrees Celsius, but we see that an expensive flat plate solar collector does it many times better, and therefore I do not recommend replacing expensive flat plate collectors by our heaters for cases of hot water supply. Moreover, this table describes the heating only for the hottest days of the hottest months, and it is obvious that the advantage of expensive flat plate collectors will be even greater for other days and months. However I have already finished testing these variants of our heaters with glass and other transparent coverings, and they will work well for cases of hot water supply, and I will describe their competition with expensive solar collectors in one of my future videos. Moreover, some versions of these heaters can be interesting for solar space heating of a house, but this goal requires additional research which will be described by my future videos.

First attempt at building an aluminum downspout solar hot air collector. Dimensions are 4' x 8' x 6". The input uses a 6" x 4" reducer with a temporary fan setup using old ducting I had laying around. The fan is AC, taken out of an old under mount microwave oven and runs at 2700 RPM. I don't have a way to test the exact output however. There is no glazing yet but the entire box is sealed using high temp silicone and the downspout is painted with stove paint, also high heat. Insulated with 1/2" silver-board and sealed all around. Thanks for visiting.

In this video I show my 6.5 Ft solar air heating collector. I explain how I wired it up to give me free heat. It's an active unit that uses a 5 inch ball bearing fan, a temperature differential switch to turn the fan on/off, and (2) 6 volt solar panels tied in series to provide power for the fan. No electric or batteries required. The purest form of solar energy.

DIY Solar Air Heater. The STEEL DOWNSPOUT Solar Air Heater! video includes full instructions w/materials list. reaches high temps (140F+). the internal fan (3-speed) has strong airflow *and is solar powered. the collector is similar to a metal can solar heater but uses steel rain gutter "downspout pipe" instead. one advantage; makes it easy to add extra thermal mass (*one example, just drop crushed aluminum cans (or rocks if you don't mind the weight) down the downspouts to add significant thermal mass. experiments with that will be a future vid.) couple of things not noted in the video: the downspout used is pretty standard (2" x 3" and made of galvanized steel) and a 1 1/4" hole saw was used to drill the inlet holes at bottom. lastly, when you're done experimenting, seal it up according to your climate conditions... *finally, if you need to get into it later, remember that it's much easier to "reverse out" the screws on the back than to remove the glass

Hot air collectors are primarily used to supply solar heat to a house in winter. They may be mounted vertically on the side of a house to take advantage of the oblique angle of a winter's sun. These home made collectors can be active or passive. By adding a fan to a passive hot air collector and making it active the heat collection efficiency is improved.

Solar Thermal air heater! Easy DIY. this flat-panel solar collector uses an "air channel" design to force the air to travel a route well over 12 feet inside of the collector - heating the air to well over 150F on the way to the top (tested w/outside temp in low 50's). no metal cans needed for this one (but optional aluminum flashing strips can be added to further increase temps). *or for the reuse/recycle option, try crushed aluminum cans along the channel. air is pulled out of collector by a small thin case fan ...and is run using a small solar panel (3 to 5 watt panel being the optimal size). the collectors surface area is roughly twice the size of any i've made so far (but it's super-slim design still keeps it lightweight). full "detailed" instructions on the build in the video. couple of things: i designed the collector to be able to pull air from outside or inside. to pull air from inside home just hook up a second vent pipe onto the air inlet at the bottom and feed both tubes in. also note; due to the collectors slim design i used a very thin case fan to allow for proper airflow. (if you want to use a standard 25mm style case fan, consider using 2x3 or 2x4 lumber for max. airflow (and adjust the internal dowel sizes accordingly).

Last year I build a few collectors. A 9 m2 gaze collector, a 6 m2 condor collector, a 5 m2 and a 10 m2 solarduct style collector. They all work well, but the condor collector stands out when the sun is faint. See my projects on: http://www.klaasvamurk.com/hotair I like large collectors, the small ones are nice for learning and trying. But in the Netherlands you need to catch every sunbeam you can. I did some experimenting with beercans, but those collectors are a pain to build (cans crease easily). But the idea of thin aluminium is good. I chose used offset printing plates as base material. You can paint them, cut them with a scissor, staple them, drill holes in, rivet them etc. Those plates are only 0.006 to 0.012 inch thick, so they heat up fast.

This video summarizes and rates several solar hot air collector absorber designs including the black box, backpass, vented soffit, double layer screen and aluminum downspout. It explains the importance of considering airflow, along with temperature rise, when evaluating a collector's performance. It also details the side by side testing methodology to determine which designs work best and gives the characteristics of a high performance, hot air collector. This video also encourages others (individual hobbyists and school clubs / science classes) to try their own ideas and see if they can design the ultimate solar hot air collector! I'm hope that in addition to being helpful information that inspires folks to brainstorm effective, hot air collector designs, this video will also be an educational, introductory launching point for those just learning about solar.

I built this solar collector to heat my new workshop. I haven't finished yet as my free time and energy has been spent elsewhere. That said, I thought uploading these pics would help some other folks interested in a DIY solar project. Let me explain a little. This is built with wolmanized lumber, lined with silverboard and sealed with high temp silicon. The aluminum downspouts are painted with high heat stove paint. If you notice the curves in the silverboard, that was done for maximum airflow as sharp corners will create dead space in the airflow. In theory, the air will travel from a solar ran PC fan into the chamber down through 5 spouts returning through 5 spouts and out to building. I've yet to test this other than running an ac fan through the enclosure. One thing to note, make sure to build the box around a glazing material. I am now faced with the challenge of finding a usable glazing material to fit this box. Hope you like my idea.

DIY Solar Water Heater. A Homemade "flat panel" COPPER COIL Solar Water Heater. Easy DIY. Full Instructions. super hot temps (sustained at 165F+). fast hot water. no electricity needed. easily hooks up to standard water tap/garden hose. reaches temps well over 150F (water pasteurization temp) so it works to clear/kill any pathogens (if a non-municipal source is used). it's super portable so it's good for camping/off-grid/emergency as well as everyday use. couple of notes: water flow rate verified with a measuring cup and a stopwatch. (roughly 1 oz. of hot water every 1 to 1.5 seconds and scaled up - one gallon every 2-3 minutes or 20-30 gallons per hour). about the copper tubing: a 50 foot roll of tubing is much cheaper than smaller rolls connected. *only $24.95 for 50 ft (but $17 for a 20 ft roll and $10 for a 10 ft roll). the glass is just standard window glass and the paint is flat black. it's thin flat design allows it to be easily stored in a closet, under the bed etc... *"seal it" according to your climate conditions and whether you plan to leave it outside. UPDATE: (06/01/2018)… if interested, here’s a youtube video link to my other (most current) copper coil water heater. It’s of a similar design but is lined with aluminum sheeting and uses larger diameter coil. https://youtu.be/btQtPQpUf90

solar air heater. solar air heat collector. simple to make. solar panel runs blower fan. no 'grid power' or batteries needed! hi temps. 150F (65.55C) and higher. great for space heating. cost effective way to heat home, garage, shed, greenhouse etc... solar heated air can reduce the heating load during the daytime, thereby reducing your power bill (and carbon footprint). works great in cool and sunny conditions. simply face it towards the sun (south in northern hemisphere) and duct it into desired building space. this 'space heater' will heat a room and assist in heating house. expand it to size. DIMENSIONS: glass/plexi-glass - 18" by 24". external diameter of cardboard - 18" by 24". cardboard rails are made with 3 to 6 pieces (glued and pressed). they are 3" wide and about 3/4" thick. wood frame is made from one 8ft long "one by four'. true dimension is 3/4" thick by 3 1/2" wide. side rails are 29" long and top/bottom rails are 18 1/8" long. solar panel is 6V 250ma (1.5 Watt) from Radio Shack ($15.00). most computer cooling fans can be run on either 6V or 12V solar panel. I have seen similar solar panels on EBAY for as little as $5.00. harbor freight sells a 12V 1.5 Watt panel ($12.00) that would work well with this too. computer cooling fan is from Frys electronics ($5.00). those can just be salvaged from an old computer. i will be sealing /weather-proofing this heater.

Homemade "Steel Can" Solar Air Heater. made with STEEL CANS. produces consistent flow of hot (140F+) air. video provides full instructions on how to build it. this thing moves a LOT of hot air. air enters through vents at the bottom of collector and is heated as it's pulled up through all seven columns of cans. the fan also draws heated air from the airspace surrounding the cans. all the cans are either soup or vegetable cans. one 9 foot piece of wood makes the frame. remember, they call it a (1x4) but it's actually 3/4" thick by 3 1/2" wide. insulation is cardboard (store-bought insulation board can be used as well). the glass is a 20" by 32" inch piece of plexi-glass. fan is a 'polar typhoon' computer cooling fan. aluminum duct is 3" diameter. use a 5 watt solar panel (or larger) to power the fan. slightly smaller panel will work but the fan may not run at full speed with a panel smaller than 5 watts. other details: use a 2.5" hole saw to cut hole in back of collector. use 1/4" drill bit to drill holes in the cans. put the cans in upside down (bottoms up), use standard flat black spray paint, and remember to seal it up for permanent oudoor installation.

Peter Rowan left his job as a "corporate weenie" in 2010 to live a life with less stuff and fewer expenses and with more time to pursue his dreams. Since downsizing his life, he's begun writing fiction from home (in addition to a teaching gig) so for a bit more privacy, this year he decided to single-handedly convert the family's unused garage into his off-grid writing retreat. Crafting it mostly out of repurposed materials, he decided to heat it using a home-made, recycled can solar panel. After collecting 275 cans (soda, juice, mineral water and beer), he began to drill holes into the ends, glue them together and fit them into a box crafted from plywood and 2 by 4's. Adding a bit of black spray paint and some plexiglass, he created his home-made solar panel. He salvaged a couple of fans from an old computer to create a system for pushing cold air into the solar panel and pushing the hot air out and into his office. In this video, Mary Rowan used her iphone to film her husband's month-long process building a solar heater with recycled cans. Granted Seattle may not be the ideal spot for solar, but Peter says that it seems to heat up the space by about 5 or 6 degrees even on a "crummy day" and when the sun is out it can provide too much heat.

This is a very simple project proving that you can have free heat for just pennies up front. A bit of cardboard or styrofoam and some aluminum foil taped to it. Place it into your window and you get free solar heat. No moving parts and no maintenance. Take any type of rigid material and cut it to fit tightly into your window frame on the inside. Then cover it with aluminum foil on one side. Cut a slot in the top and a slot on the bottom for air flow. Paint it all black on one side. Put the heater into a south facing window and now you have free heat when the sun shines. If you use styrofoam and cover the window fully, you also have an insulated window to reduce home heat loss at night.

Easiest passive solar heater, This DIY Solar Water Heater can be done by anyone at home, Cheapest Solar and Easiest Solar ,as easy as joining two ends of pipe, and presto! Our basic idea of putting this innovative Solar Water Heater on YouTube is to make people understand the simplest way to store the heat energy of the sun for everyday use. Everyone knows if one puts anything under the sun, it starts getting hot slowly irrespective of the ambient temperature. It can be freezing cold or extremely hot, the free energy of the sun goes wasted unless it is tapped and stored. There are many different ways to tap the solar energy for heating mainly for domestic use, the very first step to harness the free energy. The normal solar panel a regular house hold item of the urban areas are far too complicated if one starts building on his own, He shall end up going to the vendor as it requires a mini workshop setup, with welding machines and other piping accessories tools. The vacuum tube solar is an amazing product though, but it requires even bigger investment for simple assembly itself at home. These high end technologies not yet very complicated by the present advancement of science are like mirage if one goes to the rural setup of remote areas in so many parts across the globe. The distinction of this innovative Solar Water Heater and the rest of the solar water heater lie in the fact that it requires a very little technical skill and can be assembled by almost everyone even in the remotest part of the world. The polythelene black HDPE/PVC/UPVC pipe being lighter can be transported very easily, and the Mild steel tank can also be replaced by HDPE water tank a light weight item too. The absorber base can be made with cement mortar also if required. Similarly with simplicity and economy for thermal gain of more than 35 degree Celsius it can also create a big avenue for power generations through closed cycle engines. This economic and light weight HDPE/PVC/UPVC solar can be installed in and around the trekking routes of Annapurna and Everest trek trail, and thousands of tourist can enjoy the hot solar shower easily without destroying the Firewood of that region, which in turn helps to retain the green, a very suitable alternative to enhance the beauty of the nature.

K.W.H. 3.1 Total: Net Amount Due. $30.71. Thermo-siphon Solar Water Heater With Electric Solar Panels "The Sun Is Working For Me" Put It To Work For You. The Sun Energy, It's Free Money Falling From The Sky, Use It. https://sites.google.com/site/solarsunwater/home I was in need of a cheap way of reducing my electric bill In 1972 We were behind over a $1000 dollars on their electric bill because they lived in an (All-Electric Home) and his electric bill was $240 dollars per month. He had to find a way to reduce his bill or, lose his home. I made my first (Batch type) solar water heater in 1972. I made my first (Thermo-siphon type) solar water heater system in 1973 1: Do not mix metals, the deterioration of different types metals can be accelerated by allowing them come in contact with other types of metals. 2: One problem with a thermo-siphon system is that the collectors can get hot enough to blow a temperature relief valve. 3: The tilt angle has a major impact on the solar radiation incident on a surface. The winter tilt angle of 65˚ degree will drop the summer and rise the winter to about 145˚f to 160˚f of equal temperature. You can stop it from Blowing it's Stack with the winter tilt angle of 65˚ degree. 4: Thermo-siphon can only transfer heat "upward". Orientation is much more important for thermo-siphon. Also, thermo-siphon can fail because of a bubble in the loop, and require a circulating loop of pipes. 5: No bents in the flow-tubes, for water to pool. 6: The thermo-siphon system will not work, if the flow-tubes don't have a upward flow all of the way too the storage tank and a down ward flow from the storage tank, with no bends in the tubing for water to pool. The most difficult part of learning how to solder would be. What works for me is to first clean the pipe end and the inside of the fitting with a combination of wire brush, fine sandpaper then apply flux. Insert the pipe end into the fitting. Heat the pipe and fitting until solder touched to the side opposite the heat source melts and it will instantly fill the entire void between the pipe and fitting. Allow to cool until solid and then use a damp rag to wipe the joints. The new 4' feet x 8' feet flow tubes made in 2013 this year. Open loop systems are the simplest to design and construct. The size here in north Alabama of about 30 sq. ft. of solar panel with sheet metal heat absorbing fins and 80 gal. water storage tank, mounted at least two feet or more above collector flow-tubes. My personal view is that the single, serpentine path is likely to perform more consistently it gets the water up to a usable tank temperature better than the parallel type of connection. My existing solar hot water heater has performed flawlessly for forty years so I will stick with a proven design. It's simple and easy to construct, no hassle to maintain. A thermo-siphon system requires neither pump nor controller. The system rely on the principle that hot water rises, and cooler water sinks. Adding absorbing fins to the collector flow-tubes, helps collect more heat to the flow-tubes. As the sun heats the water in the collector during the daylight hours, it will rise to the tank above it. The solar heated water flows from the tank when ever hot water is used within your home. Water can freeze in a panel on a clear night with temperature below 32˚f. Dad has some more tolerance in his system as his panel is located in his sun space. So freezing water in his pipes will not happen until maybe 20-25˚f (roughly). He drains about 1 to 2 gallons of water out the flow-tubes. Heat Exchangers do lose about 30 to 50 percent of the heat. Here's What A Do it Yourself Thermo-siphon Solar Water System will do for you It's, the best investment you can ever make. We have 4 at home Faith and Me, Dad and Mom. Now Me and Faith take a bath every day I, will stay in the shower for over 30 minutes then, Faith will do the same, all between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Dad will take a bath or shower at 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and my Mom maybe at 10:00 am and every day at least two full washer of clothes. We all have hot water and the dish washer gets used at least four times a day.

I built a 2' x 8' solar thermal heater to heat my basement during the day. Lessons learned from this build are... 1) Use 2"x6"x8' boards instead of 1"x6"x8' boards due to the screws blowing out the side even though I drilled and screwed straight. 2) Use clear silicone instead of white to reduce heat reflection of the white color.

With an old radiator, a 220 liter water bin and a few random hoses and connectors I made a solar collector to heat my greenhouse during the night. The radiator heats 220 liter of water which will keep the greenhouse temperature up during the cold nights: the heat will slowly radiate out. The radiator is packed in isolating foam material within a wooden box closed off with a sheet of plexiglass. It works like a charm: no pump is needed since the hot water will flow UP and thus create a flow which sucks the cold water in at the bottom of the radiator. Simple, reliable and cheap. Obviously this does NOT work in cloudy conditions, but with clouds the temperature won't drop as dramatically as with clear conditions. Hard frosts may also damage the setup, so I tinker with the idea of making a version with a copper coil (connected to the radiator) as heat exchanger in the vat and fill the coil with antifreeze.

READ IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW: I built a solar water heating system. In this video I show you how I built the water heating solar panels. My current system of twenty panels have the capability to collect 500,000 BTU per sunny day. typically I collect about 300,000 BTU, Still that is enough to easily heat our house for a day The panels cost about $450 to $500 each to build. Still that is much cheeper than buying them off the open market. UPDATE: The second set of solar panels has been plagued with leaks. The joints between the header and the 1/4 I/D tubing keeps springing leaks. I do not know why this set keeps leaking, and the first set (after three years of use), has not. For a DESIGN IMPROVEMENT I now wrap rings of 8 or 10 guage copper house wire around the joints before soldering. This holds a fillet of solder at each of the joints and dramatically decreases the leakage opportunity. I plan to make a video of this improvment when I get time.
