This video shows the build of a redneck style off grid wood burning heat exchange we use to heat our house in the winter. It will keep your home warm without electricity, or using the furnace. The air comes in through the front, where there is a lot of spaces along the bottom of the barrel, then gets heated and rises through the duct in to the house.Here,the air from the house does not go into the exchanger, it only pushes warm air into the house.

DIY Video: How to build a Homemade Solar Heat Pump System to heat your home through the winter

This Video shows the build of a DIY Solar Heat Pump System .An air source heat pump consists of an evaporator coil, a condenser, two fans, a compressor, and plumbing lines containing a refrigerant. In simple terms, during the winter the large fan in the outdoor unit pulls cool outdoor air through the evaporator coil which causes the refrigerant inside to absorb what’s called ‘latent heat’ from that air, and then begins to boil and evaporate . Once the refrigerant is up to temperature, it passes through the condenser coil/heat exchanger where indoor air also passes through the condenser’s fins to absorb the heat from the refrigerant and deliver it where it’s needed.A heat pump is essentially an air conditioner working in reverse. Instead of pumping heat from indoors to outdoors, it’s pumping heat in reverse.

This Video series shows step by step on how to build a Homemade DIY Off grid Solar Powered PowerWall Backup System using salvaged and used Chevy Car Batteries.Here we are modifying an 18kwh (Gen 2) battery from an Old Chevy Volt EV hybrid, so that I can use the cells in a DIY Powerwall. The original battery is all wired in series for 355 volts. I’m breaking it down into 8 smaller batteries, each with 44 volts.This DIY Powerwall is using Chevy Volt (Gen 2) batteries instead of the usual Tesla or 18650 cells. This set-up will provide me off-grid backup power in case of an emergency.It’s great that we can re-use and recycle these used car batteries.

This Video Series shows the build of a Garage heating System which is super insulated, has a radiant floor, and will be heated with the sun. Solar thermal will heat the mass of the concrete floor with hot water. I built this using air-tight and super insulation better than what you would find in a passive house.I set up radiant tubes in the floor for the hot water to circulate. This is a hydronic radiant floor.We add Heat exchanger later to the system which captures the sun’s energy in hot water, and sends it to the radiant floor in my garage/shop.

This Video shows the build of a Homemade Compact “”Counter-Top” Water Distiller which literally cost me nothing to make.It’s made with items commonly found around the home, so for many people, it’s free to make.This Unit Makes Water Fast!.The TDS (total dissolved solids) in the water used was 575-638 ppm. The unit will purify just about any dirty water and works great for converting saltwater to freshwater.No electric power? use propane stoves, rocket-stoves, campfires, parabolic dishes… anything to get the water boiling.Only use Heavy Duty foil for the trough and make trough as smooth as possible for the best water flow. cooling the “condenser bowl” with cold cloths increases water production dramatically.
