Fredericton man builds $300 solar furnace, decreases heating billRandy Buchanan made heating unit from pop cans, aluminum eavestrough downspouts, old windowCBC News Posted: Feb 07, 2014 11:27 AM AT Last Updated: Feb 07, 2014 11:57 AM ATimage► Pop can solar furnace 1:35

 A Fredericton-area man says his heating bills are decreasing thanks to a solar furnace that cost him $300 to build.Randy Buchanan, of Lower St. Mary's, modified plans he found online to build the heating unit from soda cans, aluminum eavestrough downspouts and an old double-pane window.Buchanan is an environmental consultant and depends on heat and clean air to raise rainbow trout for his aquatic toxicology studies.He began looking for heating alternatives after his bills for heat and an air exchanger soared this winter.Buchanan says his first attempt at solar heating worked a little too well.imageRandy Buchanan combined pop cans with aluminium eavestrough downspouts, and an old thermopane window to build the solar furnace. (CBC)"We took it outside … it was a cloudy day and I was doing paperwork and kind of forgot about it and had the exhaust and intake plugged," he said. "The sun came out and I said, 'I should run out and see if it's producing any heat.'"Well, on the way over I heard a large bang and the inside window had broken on the thermopane, it got so hot. I took a thermometer and checked it, and it was 120 C, so you could boil water inside here."Now, with air circulation from a small exhaust fan, Buchanan says his solar furnace — attached to the southern side of the building — works like a charm.The air comes in at 5 C, and comes out at 38 C, he said."I think it's something that everyone should have affixed right to [their] house. I think it should be part of your design," said Buchanan. "It would be very easy to do. [With a] south-facing house like mine, it's perfect."Just mount it on the side. If you touch the side of the house, even at —20 C, it's still hot. We should be gathering that heat and driving it inside as quickly as possible."Buchanan says he doesn't yet know how much he is saving by installing the makeshift heating system. He points out the solar heat is coming down for free.
