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 an easy conversion of an Old Ceiling Fan motor into a Power producing 40 Watt 200V 3000RPM Alternator Generator that can used for powering your devices.The ceiling fan motors have the stator in the center and the outer portion that usually attaches to the fan blades rotates around the stationary stator. This allows for Neodymium Magnets to be placed around the perimeter. When the outer portion spins, it produces an alternating current. For conversion of an alternating current (AC) input into direct current a (DC) output, a bridge rectifier is used

    • DIY Video : How to build an Off Grid DIY 12 Volt Washing Machine from junk parts and pieces laying around
      This video shows the build of a homemade 12V washing machine made from junk parts and pieces laying around.Most of the materials you’ll need can be found around your house and most certainly at your local hardware store.Great for going off grid for a while preparing to be survive in case of SHTF or are you just a regular old camper that needs clean clothes at camp.Laundry has come up a number of times as a self-sufficiency topic. It makes sense for a couple reasons. First of all, because many people in our crowd are wanting to be self-sufficient of the electrical and water grids, and need find another way of washing clothes. Secondly, because we are also usually looking for ways to save money.

    • DIY Video : How to build a Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator
      This video shows the build of a  Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator.A wood gas generator is able to convert wood, or in our case, wood pellets, into a source of fuel which can be used to generate electricity.The wood or charcoal is turned into wood gas, which will be used for powering our generator. In this tutorial, we are creating a wood gas generator that can be used to power and RV motor.From start to finish, we were able to put together this generator in only four hours. In total, we used less than $100 in parts. It’s a great way to build your own wood gas generator while staying on a tight budget.If done correctly, you should be able to run your generator by burning wood pellets alone. It’s enough to power a small 5 hp electric generator, or even more. .The materials you need for this project are 20 Gallon Metal Trash can - This will be used to contain the wine cooler and wood chips as they burn,Wine Cooler - This will encase the wood chips as they are burning,Metal Bowl - You will place the wood chips in this bowl and collect the coals as they burn.Filter - This will filter the tar out as it makes its way to the generator,Wood Pellets - Our fuel source.Aluminum Duct Line - This will connect to the gas generator to the wood pellet burning stove.Air Inlet Port - A valve that we can use to let air in as the wood gas travels to the generator.
