Safe, Quiet, And Economical Space Heater“The idea has caught on all over the country since your original report years ago. It’s amazing,” says Harrold Andresen, about his simple do-it-yourself space heater that simply plumbs into a hot water heater.
He got the idea after moving into a house with no furnace. He soon noticed how warm it was in the closet that housed his hot water heater. So he plumbed a coil of copper to the hot water line, put the coil inside a short length of 6-in. flue pipe, and added a small fan. The makeshift heater puts out 80 cu. ft. per minute of 95° heat, enough to add a lot of warmth to a home or cabin at minimal cost. Best of all, it’s clean, odorless and safe.
The Cozy Heater can be easily built in one day. Complete detailed plans sell for $16.95.
