The Do It Yourself World: :)

The Do It Yourself World: Please come over the thediyworld forum and post your work when its done. I am interested to see how it works out.

The Do It Yourself World: Yes, good point. Taping some foil that can blow inwards at the top, but seals against the hole at night works. You can tape foil on the bottom in reverse as well.

rigidheddleweaving: Have you tried storing the heat in water bottles? That's my next fun thing to try. I'm going to run tubing thru one of these into a water jug and see what kind of thermosophoning action I get.

The Do It Yourself World: @rigidheddleweaving I am working on a water system, but we are in full winter here and I need to use antifreeze with it. Hopefully I will have a working system soon.

tappps: isn't it dark?

The Do It Yourself World: That window gets blocked off, yes, but I have a bunch of windows in this camper so its no problem.

2JobsStillPoorUSA: Will do... I just need to find an industrial strength mechanical type thermostat and get my hubby involved because he can deal with any sensors and actuators that I would have no clue about. :)

2JobsStillPoorUSA: I did something very similar inside my home... amazing how great minds think alike. I do have to say that the siphon effect happens on cold winter night in reverse... taking heat from the top vent and cooling it against the glass and expelling it from the bottom vent. I found that blocking the vents with the excess foam you cut stops that problem. :)

2JobsStillPoorUSA: I have some ideas for a more sturdy heater with some sort of closure on those vents. I've been think of something like one of those springs found in the old style thermostats. If I can get it to work as I imagine, it will automatically open and close the vents with just the change in heat.

Trina Jennings: My sister has made a few solar windows and even one for a chicken shed.She uses pepsi cans and paints them black and also using the glass or frame from old storm windows/doors and then adds a little fan.The chicken house got so warm they had to open a window for them:)
