Clever – the design kind of looks uncool but still, I would like to have one.
A Northern California inventor has created a small space heater powered by a single jar candle. The device consists of a multi-core steel and ceramic radiator suspended above the candle on a steel frame. The heat of the candle is captured and concentrated in the center of the radiator assembly by an internal solid steel core. After 20-30 minutes the outer ceramic surface begins to radiate the captured thermal energy into your room or office.
We students often find ourselves in small quarters that are not efficiently heated. This compact device (a little larger than a Colemanâ„¢ lantern) can add meaningfully to our space heating requirements, especially if we are burning candles for light or ambience already (might as well get the heat too). Another bonus is that the soot associated with burning candles is captured in the interstices of the radiator and is easily brushed or vacuumed out.
Â The inventor, Doyle Doss, is quick to point out that â€œIt is only a candle.â€ when asked â€œHow big a room will it heat up?â€ But the thermal energy of the candle does transfer through and you are able to add the heat of the candle into your room. â€œYou are not going to heat up a mansion with this,â€ he goes on to say, â€œbut it does make a significant difference in a small insulated space.â€
As winter approaches students in the north are seriously searching for alternative methods of staying warm. This Kandle Heeterâ„¢ Candle Holder may be the very device we have all been looking for — a means to add just a bit more heat into our study space without driving up the gas bill. Besides, now we can have the ambience of that â€œminiature fireplaceâ€ we all wished we had anyway.
The Kandle Heeterâ„¢ Candle Holder is very reasonable priced at $25.95 and is available exclusively from the manufacturer at www.heatstick.com. The website is very informative with lots of pictures, testimonials, explanations, and informative mini video clips. The Kandle Heeterâ„¢ Candle Holder may very well become a standard item in every studentâ€™s â€œgoing away to schoolâ€ kit, right along with hot pots, microwaves, and coffee makers â€“ but the candle heater will be the only product that will still be working when the power goes out. We may starve, but at least we can cozy up together in front of the fire and stay a little warmer while we wait for the lights to come back on.
