simple shop built solar syphon heater mounted in/through the window of my workshop. Loosely based on plans from the Maine Solar Energy Assoctiation: http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/SpaceHeating/mssungrabber.htm
Being in a northern climate, I built the ‘vertical’ variant, and used simple plastic sheeting for the see through section, and landscape cloth for the black section.
I finished just as the sun went down today, will report back with how effective it is.
