    Your setup is perfect… If I were you I would try it without the fans. The air gets so hot that the natural convection will do the job, because you inlet and outlet are on there natural spots. Ofcourse a fan will cranck up the volume of free energy.

    WHAT KIND OF FANS DO YOU USE FOR THIS SYSTEM? WILL 12V SUFFICE? also, what heats your house at night?

  9. ZombieTex1 says:

    Just a thought, do you think it would be a good idea to run the output back down to floor level so that the hot air doesn't just go directly to the ceiling and sit on top of the cold air that's already in the house?  If you put the output on the floor, the hot air would have a chance to heat the lower lying air as it made it's way up.

    isnt the noice anoying ? Maybe if you place your system further away , the noice is less?

    Used aluminum dryer vent. Heat builds at the sun exposure goes up.

  13. Matt Vey says:

    I used both flow types and decided counter flow just because the heat was at my feet when watching TV.

  14. Matt Vey says:

    I used the aluminum flashing to hold the lexan to the box. It was fine.

  15. Matt Vey says:

    No. Runs off AC

    Clean energy production with solar panels / tiles and battery storage.
    Clean energy consumption with electric vehicles.  No emissions.
