DIY Emergency Fire Starter Char Cloth
Before the discovery of matches and other modern conveniences, fires had to be started in more primitive ways. Like rubbing sticks together, or burning wood with a magnifying glass. But anyone who's tried these methods know it's extremely hard work to make a fire, especially in an emergency situation. Luckily, there's a way to cheat, and it's called Char Cloth. To get started on this project, I'll sacrifice one of my little boys shirts, and a can of tuna. This shirt is 100 cotton, and that's what we need, so now we can focus prepping.
This can. I'll grab my wife's can opener and a small screwdriver and get to work on removing the lid. The lid lifter cuts sideways, and removes the top portion of the lid just below the rim, and that's perfect because we'll want it to fit back together later on. Ok, the tuna comes out, and after a little cleaning, our char cloth maker is nearly complete. Let's cut off about 4 pieces of shirt and lay them on the lid, then the bottom of the can fits over top. To finish, we can punch a small hole in the top with this screwdriver to act.
As a vent hole. To char this cloth properly, we'll need to heat this up over 400 degrees Celsius, and that can be done with the Solar Scorcher. It's about 7pm and the sun has nearly set. I've found the focal point and am happy to see there's still plenty of heat. The little flame shows that the cotton is charing and releasing hydrogen and methane gasses through the hole in the top. Alright, the flame just went out, so that means it's done, and we'll need to carefully cover the hole with some aluminum foil to.
Prevent air from leaking in and causing a flashback. Now that it's cooled down, we can remove the foil and the cover to see how our cloth turned out. It's completely black. Totally charred, but not burned, and that's just what we needed. The fabric's still pliable, but is now extremely sensitive to heat. Just a few seconds with the sun and a water bottle, and we can easily make a fire! Your water bottle can also be used to make a fire without the char cloth but it takes a lot longer, and is much more difficult. Ok, so it's the next day and I'm making another.
Batch, this time with an open flame! This method works super well and only takes about 2 minutes to cook all the gasses out of the fabric. When it's cooled down and the foil is off, i'm really impressed at how much the fabric has shrunk from the original size. Now I'm wondering if cotton balls will work, so my little boy is helping load a batch, and after 2 minutes in the fire they're all done. They're looking great and I'm interested to see how they'll compare to the cotton fabric. To test the quality, let's brush the side.
With a flame, and blow gently to see if it glows. Success! This fabric ignites amazingly fast, and burns impressively slowly. From this point, all it takes to get a flame is to add something flammable, like this paper, and blow. Haha FIRE! These charred cotton balls work so well, and are so cheap and accessible, that I think from now on I'm going to use them exclusively in my Fire Piston. You can see how to build this in a different tutorial. I also tried making Char Cloth using another fabric and a mint tin, a glass baby food jar,.
Installing Solar Panels
Photo voltaic cells are an important focus of our retrofit. The photo voltaic or PV Cells are destined for the garage roof. There is enough space there to accommodate the 1.2 kW array. Current government rebates apply to the installation of the array but rebates are subject to change so you will need to check if you qualify. The panels are mounted on aluminium frames. This is vital to ensure that they are set to the correct angle. In this location it's around 7 degrees. When it is finished we are hoping to generate about 7kwh per day which goes back into the.
Grid. It may even give us some return. The panels are interconnected and the electricity fed through to an inverter. The PV Cells have a life expectancy of more than 25 years and they are virtually maintenance free so you can be assured of getting a good return on your investment. Installing a 1.2 kW array of photovoltaic cells and connecting into the grid is a relatively simple exercise. The finished array looks very neat and in these conditions will be paying its way in no time. Ok, there it is, the photovoltaic's are installed on the roof. They are wired into here, this.
Solar Panels for Your Home AmberGreen Energy
Solar panels for your home Well my reasons for installing solar panels in my home were mainly to do with reducing the cost of my electricity bill and secondly to get a better return for my money than I've been getting at present because interest rates are so low and also thirdly to reduce my carbon footprint I contacted amber green and a representative came along and spoke to me about it and informed me how my investment would actually make me money as well as saving me money on my electricity bills.
And I found it very clear he left me to mull over the information me a given me and when I was ready I contacted them so I found it and easy enough to understand that this is a governmentbacked scheme and that I would be paid about a nine percent return on my money for the next twenty years and I felt that as it was government based my money was a safe investment for me. Having looked at the data I came to the conclusion that this was a better investment than some of ISAs.
This was such an easy process for me. On Monday morning at eight o'clock there were men at my gate and by four o'clock afternoon I was producing electricity. I absolutely love the solar panels an the fact that I am not polluting the environment I love the fact that I can use my appliances to me it's for free. It's a lovely feeling think you're not creating pollution at least you're doing your little bit well if anyone is thinking of installing solar panels for their homes I would say, don't think about it just do it.
Why Teslas Powerwall Battery Is Amazing
All of humanity just won a really important victory in our battle to lower the CO2 emissions that are causing climate change. Tesla CEO Elon Musk introduced the world to the Powerwall, a wallmounted battery for your house which aims to accelerate our transition to clean solar and windpower. Before the powerwall, there was no way to store the energy generated from the panels that capture sunlight on our roofs. So during the day they could give you the power you needed, but at night, you had to rely on the grid, which gets most of its.
Electricity from coal, natural gas, and nuclear reactors. There had been some early home batteries out there, but nothing that was nearly this affordable. But Tesla, which has built thousands of large, lithiumion battery packs for its growing electric car business, was able to produce a similar battery for buildings at a scale that dropped the production costs dramatically. The lowest capacity model will cost just $3,000. And this is the first generation of the productbefore Tesla's even completed building its massive new Gigafactory, or any real competitors have entered the market, events that will surely push the price down.
Even further, while increasing the energy storage capacity of the Powerwall. Here's how it works. When the sun is out, solar panels will power your house and charge the Powerwall at the same time. And when the sun goes down, this charged battery will kick in to meet most or all of your electricity needs until the sun comes back up again the next morning. This is gamechanging. More and more people will go completely offgrid. Every building whether it's a home, office, business, warehouse, factory they can all.
Install solar panels and some Powerwalls and instantly see their fossil fuelgenerated electricity needs drop significantly. Not every building will be able to go completely solarpowered, but most will get pretty close, especially as our appliances become more and more energy efficient. And it gets even better. The powerwall will be connected to the Internet and the rest of the energy grid. Here in Southern California, and most other heavily populated places, the electricity company charges us a lot more when we use electricity during peak timethat's in the afternoon and early evening when the temperatures are warmest and most of us are.
Home and still awake. The Tesla battery is smart, and knows when electricity is cheapest, so that's when it will draw from the grid to charge itself. And then, during peak time when you need electricity, the battery will power the house. Sometimes, you'll be able to sell back unused power to the utility company during peak time to even make a profit. It's basically going to make each individual building its own power station. Overnight, Tesla seems less a futuristic car company, and more like the man who inspired the company's name, a revolutionary electricity engineer named Nikola.

How To Install A Wireless Home Alarm System DIY At Bunnings
I'm going to show you how to install a wireless home alarm system. I need a drill, some drill bits, pencil, screwdriver, scissors, double sided tape, and a tape measure. I will also need my ladder, my wireless home alarm system, and a strobe siren. So what we're going to do, we've determined that we're going to put our keypad here. So we'll just get the brackets, install it into the wall, and then we'll mount our keypad on there. So to mount it we use a mounting bracket, the screws that are provided in the.
Package, and always revert back to your instruction manual. All right, so we'll predrill our holes, put our wall plugs in, and then screw the bracket into the wall. The next step before you mount the keypad onto the wall is just to remove the tabs at the back here. So our next step is to figure out where we're going to put our sensors. In this instance, we'll probably go down the hallway because then it'll pick up all the bedrooms. And then the next one we'll put into the family room, next to the back door, and that will pick.
Up all the kitchen area, living room. So when you do choose a position for your sensors, just make sure it covers the most area possible. So obviously first things, the bracket is down at the bottom, so make sure you leave enough room when you're mounting it so you've got room to mount it onto the wall. That slides into the back of the sensor. That goes into the wall. And then you just push together. And that's how it attaches to the wall. So we're screwing straight into the stud, but.
If you're not predrill use your wall plugs as provided. So just remember before you mount it, just to take out the tag. Just repeat that process for your second sensor. So our next step is to install our tamper sensors. And what these do is if someone breaks into the back door, it'll trigger the alarm off. This piece goes onto your door jamb. This one goes onto your door. And just make sure when you install it that the two arrows align up like this. And then when they get broken, it'll trigger off the alarm.
So in your packaging, you'll find a charger to charge your keypad batteries, And when it comes to personalizing your alarm system, you can revert back to your instruction manual. This system will send a message to your phone once the alarm goes off and to personalize that follow back to your instruction manual. So this is an optional strobe siren. This gets put on the outside of your house. This is to deter intruders coming in and also alerts people if you have been broken into. So that's how we install a wireless home alarm system and obviously how to keep your house.
