hi, i am after plans on how to build a heater from a used hot water
service , i came across plenty of diy info ages ago, but for some reason ,
i cannot find a thing now ......there are plenty water , heaters/ boiler
designs , but all i want is a heater for warming myself up.
any body got any info / links ?
Residential electric hot water heaters do not have the btu capacity to
heat much space when used as a source of hvac heat. Plus they were
never intended for the sort of duty cycle that would be imposed on
them if you tried to use one. If that's not enough you are still
using resistance electric heat as your source and it is the most
expensive heat source in most areas. You'd be better off just running
resistive heat in a forced air handler. There is no magic heat for
free. Laws of energy conservation definitely apply in the hvac
they already have such a thing, but *most* have not used wood since the turn
of the last century..... its called a BOILER
FWIW, maybe you should be looking in survivalist type news groups. Everybody
here is into stuff that is a bit more modern and up to date.
All you should get are "smart arse comments" when you have no
sense of humor and most importantly are unable to articulate a question
that does not require mind reading skills.
Maybe a good wank or two would improve your disposition. You'll
need a thicker skin when your total technical summary for equipment
is "a used hot water service" and a description of the equipments
application is, " to warm myself ".
I found all sorts of DIY for old water heaters (if that's what you're
talking about) on my first search.
No one worth there salt will dance around you by asking you numerous
questions and make you the center of attention/Queen for a day.
Other then the lack of humor and articulation, it DOES appear you
approve of DIY scenarios.
So here's your DIY instructions for finding what you want on-line:
