I purchased this one from Ebay used (like new very cheap)..



My reply to a interesting letters about Solar collectors..

Hello Peter,
Either system is more hype than reality..The solar water collectors cost a fortune, is a high maintance system that would require alot of know how on your part to keep it going. The air collector system is fairly straight foward, simple and maintance is mostly airfilters..Both look good and will impress your neighbors and would require back-up cooling-heating..Let professionals install either one for insurance reasons, tax right 0ff, and cheaper electric rates. Overall after installing my first system in 1958 consider either project more of a high-tech hobby that you will enjoy many days of feeling pride just looking at your collectors and lower cooling-heating bills.
Sincerely,
David

Hello Jim, What a project your taking on..I like it that your building it away from your home..My webpages covers about everything about what i've done with solar collectors. Most of my projects have been with air collectors only because the are much cheaper and you can use about anything laying around in the junk-scrape pile to build them with..Some absorber - glazing items have worked now for 20 years trouble free and others in a couple of years have been useless to my surprise, its trial and error. My last project was collecting first used double glass patio doors with the aluminum door frames. I them built my system around them and they have worked just perfectly..
Sincerely,
David


Answer to your question Jeff about basement passive solar panel dehumidifier..

Hello Jeff,
Passive Solar basement Dehumidifiers work very good and takes only a few dollars and if one of your windows is facing the east-south..You probably can't find much info on them on any search engine because most people that build them has bad results..To tell you how to do it i can only say that if you understand basic passive solar collectors designs here is a few tips..Cold air intake at the bottom and hot air exhaust at the top..At the cold air intake duct you will need to make a water trap for the moisture condensation that gathers of solar panels and runs back down to the panel bottom as water.. A home without a basement i dug a two foot wide about one foot deep hole put some gravel in it and that took care of the water run off..A basement you will have to connect a water hose to the bottom of the solar panel to a drain or to a water collector container. Fungus will grow and can be high maintence if you don't have a easy way to remove the glass to clean it..Or in the design have your airflow behind the metal panel where the air is not visiable to the sun..The size of the solar collector would be the size of the window so it wouldn't be a big job. If the sun is coming in the basement window, just build your system behind the org. glass, but my experience has been the low angle of the winter sun will hit the window fine, but the rest of the year the suns angles is higher and doesn't enter the window much if at all..Then i would make the solar panel twice as large as the window and let it lay at a angle where the sun hits it year around.
Sincerely,
David
