Removing Free Solar Heating Panels From Old House
We are removing a solar powered central air heating system from a house that is to be demolished. These are solar heating panels and they sure do pump out some heat.
The house seems to have been nearly completely heated by the power of the sun. The ducts from the solar heating panels go down into the house and the heat is sent through ducts to all the rooms. There is a blower system and a heating control unit in the house.
I just wanted the solar heating panels for now. The blower would be way too high power for my off grid tiny house on wheels for now.
We had removed one of the solar panels already in the previous video. You can see the video here:
That was the easy one. Now we have to remove the more complicated one. This one is tough because of the steep slope of the roof under it and the drop off below.
We first took a hand rail off the roof where the fire escape used to be. We then moved it over to the roof where we were going to work and secured it to the roof to use as a platform to stand on.
My friend removed all the screws from the framing of the solar panel with his impact driver. This part went pretty fast.
Next we had to remove the old A frame and supports for the solar heating panel. This was pushed down off the roof so it would not tangle our feet later.
The hard part was moving the solar heating panel over the peak of the roof and down the other side.
Once we had the solar panel on the roof next to the other one, it was time to bring them down to the ground and load them into the truck.
My friend went down to the ground to catch the solar panels as I handed them down.
I pushed each panel over the edge of the roof and eased it down into his hands. Then he eased it to the ground. We did the same with the next one as well.
For now we put them into the bed of the truck laying down but for our travel back to New York we will secure the panels properly for the long ride home.
I will use one of the passive solar heating panels for the greenhouse and one for the off grid solar battery and rain water shed.
