Have you ever desired to build your own solar water heater but didnt have the right product or instructions to teach you how to do so? If thats the case, todays your lucky day as building these things is extremely cost effective and very friendly on the environment.
As you and I both know, many peoples are learning how to create their own solar hot water heater as a way to save money on their electricity bills, as these things are known to cut down on monthly utility bill payments by around 33% (or more) every month!
Not only that, but these water heaters are known to reduce any dependency you have on the national grid, you will not have be annoyed by power outages as much as others who rely on the electricity company, and you may even qualify for a rebate from whoever supplies power within your location area. Last but not least, diy solar water heaters are cheap to install compared to other ways of getting electricity.
Unfortunately, if you were to buy a water heater that was already pre-built, you would have to pay well over $1,000, but if you were to build your own solar water heater, it may cost you between $50 and $200 (more or less) dollars. Not only that, if you were to construct one yourself, you would see a return on your money almost instantly, as it takes a very long time to see a return on investment with the ones that cost $1,000s of dollars and whatnot, and you do not want thatI promise you that!
In order to construct a heater, you would have be required to own a pair of scissors, buckets, some wood, a glass pane, aluminum foil, and a few other items; all of which you can buy at the local hardware store in your city. Also, there are a few crucial parts of a solar water heater, and one of them is the solar panel itself. The solar panel is the component that is used to convert the suns energy into efficient electricity that you can use to power your household. You can order one of these online, build it yourself, and/or buy it in the store if you like. Some of the other parts that you will need are metal pipes and wire extensions, just so you know.
Also, the other essentials needed to build your own solar water heater are a glass-covered box that is used to absorb the heat from the sun, a storage tank that you will put above the glass-covered box, and a set of copper pipes that will be used for the flotation of water in your glass box.
For those of you who didnt pay attention in science class, hot water rises upward while cold water falls downward. Because of this, the water in your glass box will move up in the storage tank (to provide heat) while your cold water will fall to the bottom of the heat collector.
The above paragraphs are just an example of a water heater that you could build with the plans that are available on the internet!
Last but not least, if you want to build your own solar water heater, there are a few things that you should look for in the product that you buy:
1. It must be easy enough to understand with instructions that are clear and detailed. Concise information will hopefully reduce the number of obstacles that you may have to endure along the way to constructing your own solar panel.
2. A money back guarantee if the product does not work as described or does not help you in any way. Products that are reliable will almost always allow for at least a 30-60 period for a money back guarantee, so if the product doesnt offer this incentive, you should probably not buy it.
3. Even better, even though this isnt necessarily a requirement, the product should come with video instructions that teach you how to build the product using step-by-step instructions that you can visually see and follow after. Its best to see things done in real-time so that you can know whether or not youre on the right path!
