That one is actually not that bad an idea. I know a guy who did this
with an array of solar collectors in his garage. If you put a garden
variety $20 "box" fan behind this it will pump out plenty of BTUs. It
kept us warm working on cars or harleys if it was a sunny day, even in
By the late 70s solar collectors were showing up in the trash as
people's roofs got replaced from the leaks. We thought they should be
used for something. I still have 3 in my shed. This was cobbled up
from junk we had in the shop.
Knew some country folks who heated the house with a woodstove in the
shed. Ran a water line under the ground, and used a radiator and fan
in the kitchen. I can't remember what they used for a circulator, but
he said he had a loop of copper in the firebox of the woodstove. Musta
I guess out in the shed he could burn crankcase oil and she didn't
mind as much.

Vaccuum turned the bathroom light on and off....I recovered and have
done a lot of (good and safe) electrical work since then.
