Tea Light Personal Space Heater

5 Minutes
Easy

This may sound like one of those “free” energy things, and I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical about this working until this morning. After spending a morning next to this thing, I can now say that this tea light candle heater actually works. You have to be near it to get warmer or have a small space to heat, but it works…really.
What is it? Basically it is 4 tea light candles, placed in a foil lined

    I don't understand why this would be any warmer than just burning the 4 candles on their own.

      Because when the terra-cotta absorbs the heat from the candles it creates a radiant heat in the room

      TERRICATA HOLDS HEAT . IT GETS HOT AND THE LARGER ONE OVER THE TOP CAUSEES THE HEAT TO DISPERSE OUT , IT DOESN'T HEAT A ROOM BUT IT WILL WARM FEET AND HANDS HAS TO BE CLOSE . CAREFUL

    Could you melt some wax and add wicks to the loaf pan so you’re not constantly lighting tea lights?

    This can work in a small enclosed porch & a sm garage. Helps keep a chill out. Try a heavy aluminum lined roasting pan with charcoal burning and a larger Terracotta pot on top. All rested on top of cinder blocks. Midwest living in the winter, we tend to get creative to stay warm. 😉💂‍♀️💂‍♂️Stay safe n warm.
