How to Build a Soda Can Solar Heater
Last Updated on July 2, 2018
Is it starting to get unbearably cold in your part of the world? Here’s one simple solution that can help control indoor temperature without increasing your energy consumption!
Make a solar heater with soda cans!
This DIY heater can make an average temperature difference of 20 degrees Celsius between the inlet and the outlet. But its effectiveness would, of course, depend on the size of your unit. The larger the surface area, the more solar heat it can get.
It’s definitely not the one great solution for heating up an entire house. It might be just a small measure but considering that you can make one out of ‘trash’ and excess materials you have from previous projects, it’s a project worth doing!
And along with other small and simple measures (like making your DIY insulated curtains), we’re confident they can all make a significant difference as a whole in keeping your home warm!
Is this going to be your next project? :)
