Egloo: Candle powered Terracota Heater

Egloo heats your room for 10 cents a day.

Egloo, a candle-powered terracotta heaterThe Egloo is a candle powered heater. An advantage of terracotta is that stores heat.  This heat is slowly and gradually released by radiation, even after the candles blow out.

“Once you light it up, Egloo needs 5 minutes to get to the right temperature. Once the candles are lighted up, they will warm up before the thinner chamber storing a high rate of heat (between 140° and 180° degrees). The warmth is then conveyed to the external covering (between 30° and 50° degrees). The air intake of the external dome facilitate the outgoing of the warm air stored between the covers, allowing thermal exchange with the room environment. After only 30 minutes the temperature of the environment surrounding the Egloo will be increased between 2° and 3° degrees.
