Candles Can Heat Your Home

Now you can use candles as an effective heat source for your home or office. A Northern California inventor has created an elegant space heater powered by a candle. This amazing new invention consists of a multi-core steel and ceramic radiator suspended above the candle on an artistic naturally finished steel frame. The rising heat of the candle is captured and concentrated in the terra cotta radiator assembly by a central solid steel core. After 20-30 minutes the outer ceramic surface begins to radiate the captured thermal energy into your room or office.

This solidly compact design (similar in size to a Coleman™ lantern) can add meaningfully to your space heating requirements, especially if you 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 assembly and is easily brushed or vacuumed out.

The inventor, Doyle Doss, is quick to point out that “It is only a candle.” when asked “How big a room will it heat up?” But the thermal energy of the candle does transfer through and you are able to add the heat of the candle into your home or office.“You are not going to heat up a mansion with this,” he goes on to say,“but it does make a big difference in a small space, and if the power goes out it can make all the difference in the world.”

The Kandle Heeter™ 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. This simple low-tech solution to space heating in a small environment has real potential to impact our lives and the planet in an energy positive way. Certainly if you burn candles it is a “no-brainer” and if you have been using an electric heater for spot heating, but it makes you a bit too warm, you can burn a candle instead and cut that power bill significantly.

The Kandle Heeter™ Candle Holder may very well become a standard household item, right along with refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers – 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 candle fire and stay a little warmer while we wait for the lights to come back on.

I normally have my Raleigh heating contractor take care of all of my heating needs. I never heard this solution before. Right now we are using an energy efficient unit and it seems so be working great. Here is my reference http://www.raleigh-durhamheatingandair.com
