THE KANDLE HEETER™

 

Heat production is totally dependent on fuel. The Kandle Heeter™ Candle Holder does not "make" heat -- but it is amazingly efficient in capturing the thermal energy of the fuel (jar candle or GlowWarmtm Electric Candle) placed under it. You can maximize the heat production by carefully selecting the fuel. The "Dollar Store" candles work well enough for the money, but R. R. in California discovered a fuel source that is much better. The restaurant industry has wicked liquid paraffin "candles" available that are odorless and burn very cleanly. They are designed to be used as ambience lighting in restaurants. The fuel source is 99% pure liquid paraffin. These cartridges consistently produce high temperatures (180 deg) on the external surface of the radiator.
