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.
