Here we have a great video tutorial from Rich Allen that shows you how to build your very own solar air heater or “solar collector” using basic tools and materials. This is a great project for anyone who wants to tap into free renewable energy and save some money on heating bills. The video gives a really good demonstration of each stage of the build and easy-to-follow instructions – it’s a project that can be completed in a weekend and would make a great science project too!

The solar air heater is one of the best ways to start your move to an off-grid lifestyle and reduce your environmental footprint. A home-made solar heater will pay for itself within a year or two, compared to commercially available collectors or solar panels that would take many years to pay for themselves with the savings on utility bills.

We found a site that’s full of info about DIY off-grid projects – the owners have done some testing on various types of home-made devices to see how they compare – it looks like there are lots of folks out there who have been building, testing and comparing solar heater designs in recent years so there’s now a wealth of help available for the DIY off-grid enthusiast!

The Simply Solar forum, started in march 2013 by Scott Davis, is a great place to start – it could save you making costly mistakes with your design and build and will give you new ideas for solar projects for use in the home and garden. It’s worth looking at some of Rich Allen’s other videos too – he has made several of these heaters, experimenting with different materials and improving the design along the way.

If you’re planning to use this kind of heater for your home (rather than a workshop or other outbuilding) you need to know that the National Mechanical Code (US) prohibits circulating conditioned air of more than
120ºF (49ºC) in wooden stud spaces, so you’ll need to use metal for the construction.

Here are a few tips to improve the efficiency of your solar heater:
Insulate the back and sides of the box well.
Twinwall polycarbonate glazing will reduce heat loss through the front panel.
Use matt black paint to absorb the maximum heat possible.
Use simple flapper valves to prevent cooling by reverse air flow at night.

Okay, here is the video:
