you are correct, i know alot of people who think it is fake. Listen, i’ve been getting paid about $200 a week just selling energy. I took the idea and plan of here. you can also try it: ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM

Yeah, it works. The concept is you have a dark colored material that can conduct heat encased in a clear enclosure, then make air blow through it. Basically this means using aluminum painted black. There is an infinite number of ways to do it. I have made a heater using aluminum cans, it works even better. There is also another more efficient design, however. I’m planning on making a huge solar heater for our house in time for next winter using the improved design, so stay tuned!
cantecleer is correct with that the fan should be on the bottom pushing the cold air in, as hot air moves towards cold and it brings moisture with it, so the density of the air will increase automatically. For a panel as small as the one they have built, I would say the fan should move pretty slow to get best results. Otherwise increase the size of the panel, then increase the air flow.
2 observations. Insulate the back and sides of your collector to hold heat from escaping. Create more surface area for heat collection and transfer by putting in something like 90 degree bent angle iron or black painted cut in 1/2 soda cans spaced thru the box. a couple inches between rows………..
I don’t know if it is true, but I’ve read other people say that a fan pushing cold air into the cold inlet is more effective than pulling it from the hot outlet. Something about the density of cold air being greater than the density of warm air. I wasn’t sure what the commenter meant though. Perhaps you could try a test sometimem by swapping the fan’s position and turning it around so it pushes air into the cold inlet. In any case, nice job and thanks for the upload! (^.^)
The system can be improved if you switch the air in a heat accumulator (stones, water bottles etc.).. This system seems very simple to build. I wonder if you get the same results you have with aluminum cans.
