Over at Hemmings Daily, you can see how to create your own free heat using custom made soda can solar panels.
That’s right- recycled solar panels- using almost completely free materials.
Thank you so much, Vanessa, for sending this article over to me.
With some 2x4s and plywood you create a simple box to house the cans.
The box was then sealed using caulk. Holes then have to be drilled strategically on the cans.
Then you stack the cans appropriately so that the holes all line up and you do this with caulk.
Once that dries up, it’s time to paint the cans black so that they can absorb as much heat as possible.
Part two. Thanks again, Vanessa! I thought this might be a great DIY idea to heat a tiny home or a backyard shelter.
