Drums of water in the basement as a buffer
Not sure where to post this. I read a discussion somewhere about a guy who had his basement, closets etc filled up with gallon/soda bottles filled with water to store latent heat energy.
This got me thinking, my basement is useless, but I have radiators down there to help heat the old stone house. I was thinking that I could throw some plastic 55 gallon barrels filled with water in the basement, and just leave them there. They the mass of water should help balance out temperature swings, and take some load off of the boiler if my thinking is correct.
Water is free, drums are free, Thoughts?
