DIY Video : How to heat your Garage for FREE by building a Super Insulated Radiant Floor Solar Thermal Water Heating System from Start to finish


    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 Powerful ice-based air cooler that can hold large ice-blocks (up to 50lbs) and blows cool air for hours.This can be powered by 12v solar panel, 12v battery or wall current (w/ 12v ac/dc transformer).This is made using a plastic tote, 2 lighted 80mm 12v computer case fans (blue-lit/but choose your color) and 3 pvc couplers (1.5" threaded).Tote is from walmart, fans from fry's electronics/amazon and pvc couplers from home depot/lowes. When fully loaded w/ice it significantly cools an area of 8x10 to 10x10 for several hours.The fans can be easily removed/or exchanged, (any 80mm fan works so you can run different colored ones, unlighted ones, ones of different speeds etc...anytime you want)
