With all this glorious weather, I got to thinking. If we had a hot air storage facility, we could capture all the hot air and save it for winter to reduce our heating bills.

And the bonus is, we can top it up during the winter with all the hot air the politicians spout... 🤪

My somewhat scientific mind says this is already possible. Not sure how practical it would be but here goes.

Dig a very large deep hole. Deeper the better.
Line hole to insulate and water proof it.
3/4 fill hole with shattered glass. With a venting pipe from middle of glass to above ground level.cover and seal then fill in remainder of hole.
Install a two way air pump, then in hot weather pump the hot air in and then when cooler pump it out again. The glass will heat up and store the hot air and can be pumped out when needed.
