THIS IS A 64 CAN , MY FIRST TRY AT MAKING ONE SO I MADE A VIDEO OF IT
Uses step bit to cut 3 holes, high heat mortar or aluminum gutter glue, set in a piece of gutter with styroform to keep cans straight, high heat paint
made one similar to this but larger so I could space the can rows apart about two inches and installed a mirror under them. The cans I painted flat black all around and used the foam insulation on the bottom and sides of the box. I used 10 stacked cans by 10 rows and this set up produced enough heat that it made my small home shop 95 degrees by noon. I live in an open area with no trees and it was a full sunny day with outside temp @ 35 the mirror helps to reflect heat to the back of cans

Sorry, I dont understand why you would want this? If the sun was out and it's warm out, I dont get why you would need hot air indoors?

Easier way.. get a sheet of Insulfoam from Home Depot. Measure you window and make a box out of the foam ONLY. Paint the inside black and cans. Put a ledge across the bottom. Make hole along top and bottom. Insert a small computer fan run by solar charger. Then place this unit into the windows from the INSIDE of the house. It is very lightweight and can be taken down when summer returns. Produces 120-150F heat.
