  4. great system…a couple thoughts came to mind as i watched…. if one put
    the black tubing in a slightly larger clear plastic tube it would get even
    hotter…. another thought was if the tube heater system was downhill from
    the house, rather than on the roof, one could insulate the tubing and have
    the heat rise like a thermosyphon, to the house without need for a fan….

  8. if you live in a colder environment, get multiple layers of glass going to
    provide a thermal barrier. as long as the glass is clear, the inside layer
    that the air flows through will heat really well, and the outer layers will
    insulate the inner layers. thus providing a barrier against heat loss while
    still providing the heat you are trying to acquire. of course, more layers
    will increase the cost of the project, and possibly reduce the final energy
    aquired, but it might work well enough.

  9. Also people need to remember that tempered glass cannot usually be cut,
    only plate glass can be cut. The choice then is to purchase or find the
    right size of glass needed first, usually temperred glass, but plate glass
    can work – which can be cut if need be.

  10. With the aluminum pipes/cans systems, people need to remember to uses the
    full size of the glass for heat collection, and not use part of it to cover
    the header/distributer chambers. Glass is sometimes hard to find and should
    be used for maximum heat collection. The header should be disigned around
    that then.

  11. that piece of glass looks really thick. I think it would cost more than $25.

  12. i have spare window from a space shuttle, will that let in enough radiation?

  13. I have 2 huge sliding glass doors I need to project-tize:-) Craigslist is
    great for them, they are an easy find. Thank you for enjoying our work and
    have a great holiday season.

  14. cant wait to see part two!!!

  15. Dan, i used a piece of corrogated aluminum from a mobile home…i have
    drawings id be happy to send you via email..or anyone else who is viewing
    this me an address and ill send them to you..i get 200 degrees out
    of mine in the winter..sub 32degree day..passive solar energy is not high
    tech and very cost effective…Great VID!

  16. “You could use it for…I don’t know; hobbies or whatever.” Lol!

  17. Richallenmusic has made solar heaters with and without glueing the cans
    together. He found a larger heat gain by adding cans, painting them black
    and just having the air flow around them instead of through them. Check out
    his videos here on youtube, they are quite interesting also.

  18. Nice information/demo… I’m going to use this technique to construct a
    solar wax melter rather than a home air heater… I’m also encouraged to
    see your messy shop area as it makes me feel so much better about my own!
    Wishing you well… I spend my coffee breaks watching your vids!

  19. Oh God Dan… I wish you’d lay me across the glass table and force heat me!!

  20. Thats just great. Have you done any GEET videos like the over 200 videos on
    youtube? Considering that almost everyone on France has one?

  21. @Naturepheonix Where do you live? Such nice weather, I definitely need to
    check that area out!

  22. Put some old corrugated metal in there, easy and cheap and will increase
    surface area.

  23. Why not use a steam powered table saw?

    By SolarizeYourLife on Apr 25, 2014

  24. I would love to see this installed and functioning!

    By Tankable on Apr 25, 2014

  25. Interesting theory and presentation. However the cans or corrugated may
    actually increase the surface area heated by the sun from various angles. I
    have no data to back this up but it is the surface area heated and not the
    surface area of the glass that counts. If I am correct a panel made with
    corrugated will win catch more heat.

  26. what’s the song at the beginning?
