Safest, Most Economical Space Heater
"It's a simple way to turn an existing water heater into a space heater. It's also one of the most economical space heaters around because it captures heat from your existing water heater," says Harrold Andresen about a new-style space heater his company, Mechanical Excellence Inc., has developed.
The "Cozy Heater" mounts on a conventional water heater and works like a hot water radiator. It consists of a copper coil housed inside an 8-in. dia. stove pipe that mounts parallel to the water heater. The cop-per coil is plumbed into the hot water line. A small fan inside the stove pipe blows hot air out a 90? elbow fitted to the bottom of the stove pipe.
"Response to the idea has been tremendous," Andresen says. "One Montana rancher liked the first one he bought so much he even bought a second water heater, equipped it with another ęCozy Heater', and is now heating his entire basement with the two units."
A complete kit is available for $99.95 including S&H, or you can purchase do-it-yourself plans.
