NEW Flower Pot Heater - Costs Just 4 Cents An Hour To Run...

25056 ratings | 6155594 views
Simple, effective, cheap heater alternative to keep you warm this winter... Additional Video Notes: - COST: Costs mentioned in the video are base on Australian prices for Ikea candles - The may be cheaper/more expensive elsewhere - TIME: It takes about and hour to make a noticeable difference on overall room temperature. But sitting next to it makes a huge difference. e.g. if you're working at your desk, sit it next to you - MODIFICATIONS: The version shown in the video doesn't have any holes in the the top for the warm air to escape like many others on shown Youtube do. I have tried both configurations and my conclusion is that both options work well, but have slightly different applications -- No holes version gets hotter and therefore is better if you are sitting next to it as you get more radiant heat -- With holes version lets some of the hot air escape out the top and therefore fills the room with hot air, and is thus better for heating a larger area. - OTHER LINKS -- How to make a halving Joint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGfI4GRjm40

There’s one thing you can do to increase heat output one hundredfold. Toss the shit and buy a propane heater.

Just try it and stop with the wise remarks could help in a emergency situation

Once u build this and find out what a wasted effort u undertook, there may just be plenty of heat around your collar till u get over it anyway... ✊😣💨

You could also just pay your electricity bill.

use metal pots,buckets for more efficient heat transfer not ceramic or terracotta pots that absorb the heat being radiated..

Ya know U Tube must have over a hundred of these flower pot heater videos on line and nobody has tried to test it correctly...Of course a clay pot with a candle burning under it will get hot and that is the way these so called “inventors” try to prove it works by using a thermometer next to or on the clay pot itself.... Why doesn't anyone film with an infrared camera to see how far out the heat radiates before rising to the ceiling? Or a less expensive method might be to put the heater on a table in the middle of a 10 by 15 room with 8 foot ceilings light it and put 5 chairs in a line a foot apart and measure the temps the farther from the heater...Will it be significantly warmer 1 foot away, 3 feet away or 5 feet away? Get my point, it may be hot enough for a small van but being an inexpensive room heater, I doubt it.

Minimize heat lost? A heater is 100% heat lost. All it does is radiate heat away from it. That is heat lost.

Best ending to a video I've ever seen. Did you suddenly have a cardiac arrest or something?

How do u make the little hole in the pot?
This was doable until the terra-cotta dish where you have to drill a hole into it. I wonder how many he went through that didn't crack and break. HD or Lowe's have tools at each station to cut that metal rod. Now all I have to find is a stand because I don't have the tools to make one. Now once I make it and put it into action, I hope my cat doesn't knock it over. LOL.

It's a pleasant looking light source😄. I thought it would be cool to make one, but judging from the comments wouldn't do much to keep me warm.

Those are cheap candles, are you sure the wax does not have lead?
Erik Iacopelli (4 days ago)
This is a pretty cool idea

in a Canadian winter, a cast iron wood stove that pumps out 50'000 btu/hr is considered "comfortable" for a large living room....Neat candle holder tho!
AuroraLalune (5 days ago)
Easier to just light the same amount of candles on a plate or something. Generates more heat too.
MrDemented669 (7 days ago)
i tea candle is recommended to keep in your car if you live in the north if you get stuck in -20 on the road side it will keep you warm till help arrives so just a candle alone is heat..so don't know why people saying this is bogus

This is why I absolutely love YouTube. This video is fun, informational, and useful. I can't think of any shows on cable TV that would show something cool like this.

the hardest part, drilling a hole in the clay base without it shattering into a zillion pieces, you dont talk about how to do????? fail. thumbs down.

Hi there,I thought that was a great idea,very well explained & it looks nice as well,I'm sure that that heater would take the chill out of a 4×4 M room,Excellent ..

Macs M. (10 days ago)
If you run the "heater" 24 hrs, then you've spent almost $30 in a month for minimal heat produced. I can understand attempting this idea in a survival situation, but in no other.

I just made one with half the candles that only costs two cents per hour to run so it's even better.

"A medium size room". Bull shit. There is no way that thing heats an entire room.
Notonebuttwo Othman (14 days ago)
4 cents per hour x 24 = 96 cents a day Almost 30 bucks a month for a stupid candle heater 😂
Melody (14 days ago)
It costs 4 cents an hour cause it has 4 cents worth of heat.
Dan Anthony (16 days ago)
These don’t work.
Mel Basilio (16 days ago)
I tried it a few times a few years ago, bread pan method in a very small room, 10x10'. It actually worked & in dead of winter (40°f) by no means did the room get too hot but it took off the chill. Was quite paranoid it would start a house fire so with constant monitoring it did not😀☮️
MoooMooWitney (16 days ago)
Why do you need fork handles in the heater? 😜
Jorel Michael (17 days ago)
The most crucial part was to tell everyone how you put a hole in the base. Did you use a masonry drill bit?

Maybe a good night light 😂😂

So, just lighting the candles will net the same heat. Everything else is "art".

You would stay much warmer sleeping with a very hot chick and a blanket...

I built one. Complete fucking lie! Don't waste your time. You are an asshole for propagating this fake science. Why don't these kind of videos get demonetized?

But doesn't this pollute the air in the room with chemicals?

Can you use Sterno to heat with instead of tea lights?

Just a note, 4c an hour is 288$ a month. The standard electric heating cost for a home depending on size and efficiency is between 50$ and 150$ per month.

JOhn Doe (20 days ago)
Build up soot inside the top pot can (and will) ignite and is very difficult to put out (needs to suffocate to out it out). I can not recommend this sort of heating.
Nathaniel Smith (20 days ago)
Fuck a pussy for 6hrs no need for heat.

If you live in an apartment...connect a space heater to the hallway and run the cord into your apartment. If anybody says anything tell them you keep tripping all the plugs in your place and smelled funny. (: Those things are a death trap. They will understand...
gjpatterson1 (20 days ago)
He’s an idiot to think that this would work, but not an idiot that he caused over 6 million viewers to click. That generated enough money to heat his house the old fashion way. I guess the jokes on us!

Go buy a kerosene heater for pity's sake. If you buy into this, please contact me regarding beautiful ocean front property in Illinois

It's odd that this is promoted as "Living Smarter", because there's nothing smart about burning tiny toxic paraffin candles and expecting any significant heating. Bottom line: it's an artsy-fartsy craft with no consideration of thermodynamic physics.
Paul D Pearce (22 days ago)
inhaling all those paraffin wax fumes in not good and god knows what else is in those cheap ass dollar store candles made in china ?!

4 x Tea light candles aint going to heat jack. You need to soak the clay pots in gas for a week...and keep pouring gas on the pot when its lit for lots more heating.

So... This only keeps the heat from rising as quickly... Not much different than putting candles in a room..

Make sure to spray the inside of both pots with WD40 right before you light it so the smoke from the candles doesn't stick.
Almighty Yak (27 days ago)
You forgot to tell everyone to use clay pots. There's plenty of morons out there that might try plastic or nylon pots. lol

So this acts as a heater able to heat a space 12 inches by 12 inches
William Sire (27 days ago)
This fooled me years ago.We got a severe winter after not having a severe winter in years. This appeared on the internet. Many , including me were fooled. The threaded rod and bolt do get extremely hot.If you had about 50 of those under your bed you would be warm in your bed.

Just go and buy a bloody heater!!!🤡👊
Adrian Arellano (28 days ago)
The initial premise of this leans monetized ignorance/trolling. The max this can do is help melt the wax so it turns all liquid if the room your in is really freezing. That way the wicks don't run out prematurely leaving a concave ring of wax around it. Besides that the average room will be just as cold but at least you can warm your hands on a heated pot.
Grim Engineer (28 days ago)
Heat from the candle is the same whether you put a pot over it or not...you are just heating the pot up. The heat would otherwise just go into the room directly from the candle. Those candles generate about 60 watts of heat each. So 60 X 4 = 240 watts. A typical plug in electric heater consumes about 1500 watts. So yeah, not much heat here at all. If you want to heat a room in the winter you would need about 5 of these in each 200 square foot room.
D Akers (28 days ago)
I'm not buying into the whole "use as a heater" theory (thermal dynamics of a candle and the average sized room don't mesh)...if I make this, it is for the aesthetic appearance in a room or for an outdoor deck. I like the DIY feature of the project.

Tried it. It doesn't work

Wow tweaker heater

To dissipate the heat on furniture simply put a 1 foot square Spanish floor tile or marble down to dissipate the Heat

Wow what a great idea, watching my house burn down from the steet kept me warm until the fire brigade arrived .
Jeff Reda (28 days ago)
I built this. It cost around $15. It’s a glorified night light. This is NOT a heater
Gregory Blank (28 days ago)
minimizes heat loss.. its a fucking heater the point is heat loss. it doesn't matter if it goes into the pot or not the tea candles only outpu x Cal of heat regardless. This is stupid
PhonedItIn (29 days ago)
If I need to warm my room up I just turn on my PS4, I'd bet it puts off as much heat as this :) lol
Salv La Monica (29 days ago)
Can’t you just have the candles lit and left on the side as normal? Same heat coming out!
