The last few winters have been tricky for many people. As the weather gets colder, certain corners of the house start to need a little extra warmth. Naturally, rooms that had a roaring fire were going to be comfortable. However, sometimes other rooms in the house would develop a bit of a chill. There weren’t many alternatives for some of the smaller rooms except for space heaters which can be problematic in their own way.

The only thing that could make a cold snap worse would be a power failure. With so many states suffering during the winter months, power failures become more of a factor each time. Even when the failures only last a few hours, several rooms can immediately become chilly and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, with the power out, central heat and space heaters alike were quite useless. Fortunately, necessity is the mother of invention and some creative people have found ways to address this particular problem with an unconventional and inexpensive way to warm up small rooms in the house without using electricity.

We found a fantastic and highly informative tutorial that discusses how to create a heater for a small room and uses items that you will likely already have in the home. The items that you’ll need are easy to store and the entire project is easy to construct and will be useful for many hours. With the use of tea-lights, aluminum foil, a metal or glass loaf pan, and some clay pots of different sizes, you can make an innovative and effective heating tool that can make a huge temperature difference.

The tutorial walks you through each step and offers clever tips to make the most of the experience. It is always a kindness when authors share the information they sometimes learn the hard way so that they can save you a few steps (and often a bit of pain). Ultimately, this project is ideal for small rooms but keep in mind that it can also provide a bit of localized heat if you have it near you in a larger room.
