You Can Do it, Build Your Own Solar Heating System
Why would you ever rely on a professional to build your solar home heating system when you can build your own solar heating system? The thought of starting to build your own solar heating system may be overwhelming to some, but as long as you make yourself educated and are willing to learn, it really does not have to be all that hard.
How to do it
Now if you are seriously interested in getting to build your own solar heating system, you should know that it is quite a complex process. The first step is to get a solar heating system package, which should contain 8 metal pieces composed of copper pipes, copper links, and nickel pieces, and an aluminum box which will be used to support the solar heating system divided into three different parts.
Now you are also going to need a few specific tools to create your own home solar heating system. You will need a blowtorch, tin, electric screwdriver, screws, sandpaper, tools to cut the isolating material, and joints. This is obviously not a job that you are going to want to have kids around for because it can be dangerous so make sure that they are out of the way.
Now to get started and going to build your own solar heating system, you need to clean the ends of the copper links with the sandpaper. Now you want to soft-solder the copper links to the copper pipes, screw these pieces of metal together, test the watertightness of the pipes in putting pressure water inside the pipe, and then you assemble the aluminum box.
The next step to build your own solar heating system is to cut the isolating material so that you can put this in the bottom of the aluminum box that you have just assembled. Now you put the isolating material in the bottom and add the nickel pieces upper, and finally add the polycarbonate glass.
Now you are finished and this solar heating system is going to be enough to provide the heating for a small home. This is great and remember that you can do this on a larger scale if you want to provide heating for a larger sized home. As you learn more about solar power you will see that it is certainly not a difficult process as long as you know what you are doing.
