Thanks for looking at this little film I posted over a year ago. Thanks to you people it has been a most entertaining week.
the little thing over the flower pot is a squished tealight surround
I do not think the size of the flower pots makes much difference - as long as there is a passage between them for the air to flow up - once hot it does move pretty fast due to convection - as I explained in the words.
They are candles and it is a naked flame - keep an eye on it - do not add loads of extra candles
I posted this last year when tealights were going for £1 a pack - feel free to post that you can pay more than that from ebay or Asda of even Ikea or harrods - prices change .
Feel free to post that this will never work because you have to factor in the cost of driving to Ikea in your Mercedes
or that this will never heat a 5,000 square feet house in Canada in february.
As it says in the film this is for a home office - you can see it is a small room where two computers are running - I earn my crust editing videos
but it is still brass monkeys in there unless I run the heater - then it becomes bearable
I am also wearing at least three layers of clothes. if I had shed loads of money or a big efficient house or I lived in a country where electricity was only three zloties a pound then I would not be pishing about with candles and flower pots.
Feel free to point out that your room is bigger than mine.
This is the web - you can say pretty much what you like
yes candles do give off C02 - but how many people do you know who have had a nice candle lit bath or shag and completely failed to suffocate themselves with Co2 or poison themselves with CO.
yes cats might knock it over
Thanks for the thermodynamic lessons from the from the crypto scientists. Agreed there is not much energy in a few tealights but this makes the most of anything that is available by getting a nice convection going - it like the difference between a radiant one bar fire and a convection heater - more air movement - fewer cold spots. In the winter I have it down to one side of my desk on the floor on a steel tray - not a copy of PBO.
Blimey there are some dozy people on this planet
- but there are also some pretty nice people and I have had some lovely emails -
If it makes any difference to anyone at all I am not earning a brass farthing from this vid as I am not in adsense
