Living “off grid” poses many challenges for “off gridders”, mostly during the short, overcast, dark
days of Winter.Having the clothes hung up on racks and lines strung in the basement works, but made
it hard to do in the winter.This video shows the build of a Homemade Clothing Dryer with Heat from a Wood Stove.This is a simple and alternative way to drying your clothes .The Dryer was bought from Ebay for cheap.The outside air gets blown by the heating tube within the wood stove.The hot air blows in the back of the dryer
- DIY Video : How to build a Homemade Atmospheric Water Generator . Produces/Extracts Distilled Water from the airThis video shows the build of a Homemade DIY Atmospheric Water Generator!.ThisUnit pulls Pure 'distilled water' straight out of the air. This simple design pumps near freezing water thru a long section of copper coil. Coil becomes very cold and dew (condensate) forms on the coil. The dew is then caught by a drip-pan located beneath the coil.This unit has the added benefit of dehumidifying the air.I used only aluminum and copper in this version. main thing with these is to keep the coils clean. if coils are cleaned after each use, the water generated is 'distilled water.
- How to build a Simple Homemade Water Distiller.Great for emergency or everyday use.This video shows the build of a Deluxe "Stainless Steel" Pure Water Still.This Distills all types of Dirty-water/Salt-water to a clean fresh drinking water.The materials you need for this project are : the 24" stainless steel supply lines are 3/4". the pvc piece is 1 1/4" OD to 3/4" threaded. the coupler is 1 1/4" to 1 1 /4". (adjust these as necessary to your specific kettle)Made using a stainless steel teapot and 6 feet of stainless steel tubing,this can either be used on a standard stove burner or rocket stove/campfire/parabolic dish for total off-grid operation. This assembles/disassembles fast for easy portability.This produces water about 50% faster than my standard stainless steel design
- How to build an Inexpensive Geothermal Air Conditioning System to Cool your Home using an Old Car Radiator ,Solar Panel.This video series shows you how to make a geothermal cooling system to cool your home with the Earths natural cool temperature.10–15 feet underground, the temperature remains between 55 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This is true regardless of the weather above ground.The geothermal unit siphons heat from inside and vents it into the water or refrigerant in the loop. The cool temperature underground then lowers the temperature of the liquid back to 55 degrees.This cooler temperature can be used to cool your home efficiently .This build uses an old car radiator to circulate the air using a Solar Panel.
