Good idea. Be careful though as it is an obvious fire hazard. As we get poorer due to the successful capitalist system we need ideas like this to survive.

Is there anything to be careful of in way of paraffin? I know nothing of candle composition but heard something to do with it before. Please forgive my ignorance and lethargy towards constructive research.

If you're running an ad blocker, switch it off and then re-enable it. See if that works. Well observed "Had the same problem".

Samsgimp, people used candles for hundreds of years, before electricity, quite safely.

But they didn't live in modern hermetically sealed houses, which, according to the latest building regulations in the uk are designed to cut out heat-loss and fuel bills and you definitley wouldn't want candles in a small room with the door shut in a Passivehaus - (currently a voluntary code) which takes draught reduction and insulation to the extreme. Whilst getting ones' heating bills down to a minimum is very desirable, I personally would prefer a bit of trade-off with some fresh air... BTW - i work in the building industry.

Latest comment: Candles don't just give off CO and different plants are better at absorbing different pollutants. Also, bear in mind that closed ecosystems tend to lose stasis pretty quickly LINK In short, your sealed room has to be a microcosmic replica of the outside world for it to be truly 'healthy'

A sufficient number of candles will produce enough heat to warm up a small space so long as all the draughts are taken care of.... The trouble is, candles use up the available oxygen in the space and replace it with carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide which will accumulate and eventually kill you. Stupid man!
