Heat Your Home With 240 Recycled Aluminum Cans
Heat your home with recycled aluminum cans. It’s a simple idea, and one that many will look at and say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” This 240 can unit reportedly heats up to 10,000 BTUs or more according to the company and is “Maintenance free”. via: Youtube – “Jim Meaney, owner of Cansolair Inc. displays how he converts pop cans into a powerful solar heating panel.” “…Cansolair Inc. has developed a forced convection solar heating unit called the Model RA 240 SOLAR MAX. A dwelling of 1000 square feet can have a complete air change in 1.5 hours. UPDATE: A single unit may not heat an average sized American home (1500-2500 square feet) by itself. Specifically speaking, a unit this size is suited perfectly for a tiny house or cabin 1000sqft or less. Important Note: With the addition of a thermal storage system, (i.e. a hot water tank or tank filled with veggie oil) one could store heat for days, and use it during periods of darkness and on cloudy days. Live small. Stay warm.
