Scott's 24 by 8 foot Space Heating PEX Collector

This is a really interesting solar space heating collector design.  It is built as a single unit that is 24 ft wide by 8 ft high.  Compared to building a bunch of separate collectors, the single unit construction saves some time, effort, and materials, and looks very nice.


The absorber is an extra wide variation on the PEX/aluminum absorber.

For more on the collector, including a link to Scott's site with all the construction details, and a few of my thoughts on the collector...

This is a good example of the kind of freedom to try new things and fit your design to your situation that building your own system gives.
