English term or phrase: solar closet
A "solar closet" is an insulated box filled with sealed containers of water, with a solar air heater attached to one insulated side. In a simplified solar space- and water-heating technique, a low-thermal-mass isolated sunspace heats a house on an average winter day, with an average amount of sun. A higher-temperature, compact, high-thermal-mass sauna behind the sunspace provides domestic hot water and space heat for the house during cloudy weather.

armario / recipiente / tanque solar

Parece una idea interesante -pero de andar por casa.
El original se refiere a una cubo particular -de dimensiones variables, por ejemplo entre uno y treinta metros cúbicos- que pretende actuar, básicamente, como una "batería solar".
No conozco ninguna traducción específica. La más literal suena tal vez algo extraña en castellano (armario). Recipiente sería otra opción, aunque pierde el matiz del tamaño; el solar closet está pensado para ser un enorme recipiente de al menos un metro cúbico incrustado en la arquitectura original de una casa o habitación. Tanque solar podría servir y resultaría probablemente la opción más ajustada.
