Are the collectors on the left and right both going into the same room?

Yes, they go into the kitchen.  Originally I wanted to have one large collector (maybe 8' wide x 10' tall with the same U air flow) instead of two, but didn't come up with a way to fit it in that area.

Was looking at your 3 speed fan controller and found one with a temperature sensor:

There appear to be quite a few others.

Been awhile since I posted. You folks are certainly dedicated, to this.  I saw a post talking about fans, push? or Pull, I wanted to comment on that.  As cooler air is denser, it is more effective to push the cold side.  I am using a salvaged computer fan, powered by a so;ar panel, no sun, limited heat exchange so the need for a fan minimal, sun and fan no need for fancy thermal couples.  Seems to do the trick, if I can keep the snow from covering up everything[smile][smile]
