USING TEA LIGHTS & POTS TO HEAT YOUR ROOM FOR 'THR'EPENCE' A DAY

(1/1)

M O'D:
As the energy bandits continue to rob the people, ingenious ideas like this begin to emerge. Here, a tea light radiator heats room for pennies per day, the cheaper you can get the candles for, the less the cost. The steel bolt through the pots in the second linked video adds extra efficiency.  Nice  :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brHqBcZqNzE&feature=player_embedded

THE TEA LIGHT CERAMIC HEATER
--- Quote ---

So How Does It Work? . . . Thermal Energy (Heat) is Collected and Concentrated in the Steel and CeramicRadiator.

The Multi-Core Steel and Ceramic Radiator (photo right) is suspended above a jar candle on a Three Legged Steel Stand so that the Solid Steel Inner Core is directly above the flame. The Radiator Assembly is secured to the Stand with Solid Brass Chains. The jar candle sits in two Interlocking Ceramic Saucers.

Steel has the ability to approach the temperature of its heat source, so the Steel Inner Core is driven to Very High Temperatures (500-550 deg. Fahrenheit) by the burning candle flame (550-600 deg. F.) and becomes a very hot Internal Thermal Mass.

The intense heat of the Steel Inner Core is transferred into the Three Ceramic Modulators, one into the other. The High Inner Temperatures are gradually reduced by the Increasingly Thicker Walls and Larger Surface Area of the modulators. The outer surface of the radiator becomes a Dry Heat Radiating Body with surface temperatures of 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit and a surface area of Over 88 Square Inches. The Heat from a Candle is effectively Transferred into your Home or Office! Amazing! . . And it WORKS! If you burn candles, now you can effectively Add Their Thermal Energy To Your Home or Office as Dry Radiant Space Heat! HOW HOT DOES IT GET? (Overseas Orders Click Here for Shipping Information!)



See the latest YouTube Movie! (Click Here). We took the demo unit to Arcata, California and let folks touch it for the very first time, 3 minute clip.

The thermal mass of the Steel Inner Core is increased by a series of flat washers, thrust washers, and hex nuts. The arrangement and varying sizes of the washers aids in the effective and efficient distribution of radiant and convection heat into the surrounding ceramics and then into your room. (So how is it made, exactly? . . . go here for construction details.)

(The head of the bolt is visible in the photo and would be a serious burn issue. It is covered by a ceramic cap in the finished unit. The cap is attached with high temperature cement.)

Please be safe with this device! Always place it on a table or other raised solid surface. Keep it away from drapes, bedding, and other flammable objects. It is not a toy!

DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH THIS DEVICE!
