    I am not having any luck with someone telling me if the glass i have is to thick to use for a solar heater. it is 7/8″ x 32″ 72″ Was going to use it to help with heating my addon room. I have 22 sheets available to make them with.

    Any help would be wonderful, thank you.

    I’m no expert, so don’t take my word for it, but I believe that the thickness has less to do with this, but if the glass has a UV coating on it, that might have an effect on things though. I would say to set up a small scale version of what you want to do, use one sheet of glass, build a frame, set it up where the sun can directly hit it, measure the temps inside and outside the unit. That’s probably the best way to see how it will work for you.

    Let us know how it works.
