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 shows a vegetable oil heavy fuel gasifier that I built in an attempt to fuel a gasoline engine with waste oil. Here i test this with an old lawnmower engine. In this video I use vegetable oil as fuel, but used motor oil should work as well.The other videos shows the build of a similar used motor oil gasifier that I built from an old fire extinguisher and some pipe. It works by pyrolysis.This one has an improved burner and sideways canister orientation.

    • DIY Video :How to build your own Homemade Lumber Mill from scratch . Step by step video Instructions
      [the_ad id="6432"] This video series shows the step by step build of a simple Homemade Lumber mill. One of the best things about this design is it’s simplicity of course, but it’s also made from salvaged and re-purposed materials.With your own mill, you can cut local softwoods to frame buildings and you can saw up local hardwood logs for mantles, doors, paneling and other house trim, or to make into furniture.You have to at first make boards, taking the parts from trees. You may do it by using your chainsaw.You can make almost all types of board, by fitting the big devices to the bar of chainsaw.You need to use a pipe, some bolts and steel in order to construct a lumber maker. For making the mill, weld together a rectangular shaped short sized chainsaw bar.

    • 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.
