Doyle Doss has been living “tiny” for almost 30 years. Mostly in one travel trailer or another usually set in pristine and ideal locations. Presently he in a 35 ft 5th wheel, that’s running at 280 square ft — more space than he is used to, but it is nice. He shared with me a unique little heater that will work great in small spaces.

Kandle Heeter

The Kandle Heeter Candle Holder, is a steel and ceramic radiator assembly that sits above the candle and converts the thermal energy of the candle into dry radiant space heat — very effective in small insulated space.

The heater is also available in a very low wattage electric version using either a 50 watt infrared lamp or a 60 watt quartz halogen. Visit the Kandle Heeter site and learn more.

    Cool idea! Why didn’t I think of it!

    Is this necessary? The candle is going to heat the room anyway.

      @ Gary, the candle will heat the ceiling first as heat rises. What this does is collect the heat and radiate it in a more uniform pattern and closer to you.

    I used to use something like this when I was driving truck. During the winter I could shut down at night and just keep the cab nice and warm with my clay heater and a can of sterno.

    I bought one of these and, sadly, I’d have to say don’t waste your money. As Tom said above, these little “heaters” put out no more heat than a plain old candle that costs a fraction of what this heater does. Also, the creator is very specific about what type candle can be used – it must be a votive in a glass. I found the unit melts the candle each time the heater heats up and the candles really don’t last as the creator suggests. Also, the heater seems a little top-heavy and has a tendency to tip over easily. It’s a great idea and a wonderful gimmick and I really wanted it to be cool, but I’m sad to say, it really doesn’t work.

    Well I bet this would work better if it were made of soapstone. Soapstone not only radiates but it traps the heat and keeps generating it long after the flame has died out.

    candle holders are really great because they can steadily hold your candle and avoid overheating too. ^

    I think the point is to trap some of the candle heat down low where you might feel more of it before it goes up to the ceiling and spreads out too high to feel.
