Free Home Heat with a Window Heater
We made this window heater a few years back. It works great. It is all wood and only have aluminum inside for thermal storage. I need to replace some of the tinfoil. This unit now heats my 700sq/ft mobile home by itself. Above 50 F outside and it will be to hot inside. The temperature inside the unit gets up to 130 F. This unit saves me a lot of money and is now the only thing heating this trailer.
It has 3 pieces of glass we got from Lowe’s. Each glass has a rubber double sided tape type of foam seal. The lead works both to close the unit in the summer and in the winter the aluminium foil makes the unit produce extra heat. So we don’t have to take it down in the summer. A solar window heater does not have to be fancy to work. The solar window hear just need to be put in the right place so it can get some sunlight to work.
I almost forgot. The wood was all free, yes I recycled it. this place smells like wood all winter, so find a wood that smell good to you and use it.
I did not paint the sides of the unit black because I do not want it making heat in the summer. That being said, i do need to look at painting it some color, maybe white of blue. The next one I make would have the cross pieces inside painted black.
I may go back later and make the window heater self closing to prevent airflow at night.
This unit is also facing west so it starts making heat around noon. I would add one to the east side but did not have a window there. The south side has trees blocking the sun.
