      My wife has a sort of relative who built a device looks like a 22 foot diameter mirrored satellite dish. It follows the sun as it travels across the sky. It collects heat with a special oil developed in the space program. He uses a heat exchanger to heat thousands of gallons of water to near boiling. A simple circulator pumps it to radiators as needed. He stores enough heat to heat his house for two weeks without the sun shining.

      Its shortcoming is that it is mounted on his roof, the framing of roof and solar collector sustain damage each big storm.

        Hear is a method of helping heat your home or shop and you can tell your wife that you have to buy the supplies and drink the contents (beer) in order to heat the house up and save money.
