Silly Tank Idea....

Post by J-P on February 3rd 2012, 3:17 pm

For those of you that know me... you know I go big....

When considering that pass through system from the ocean to the home, I had a brain fart of massive proportions...

What if the interior walls themselves were acrylic tanks (or a single)? LOL!! I know it sounds crazy... but think of the R-Value!!

Water pumped in would always be above freezing so you could heat it to a balmy 80 and then it would circulate through the tanks actually heating the home while providing some very nice but costly insulation from outside.

Of course the tanks or tank would be on the interior of the walls and not the exterior.

Hrmmmm.... I wonder what kind of budget you would need for something like that.

Actually had the same thought myself but never got around to calculating cost/efficiency. Let me know if ya look into it anymore.
