This Clay Pot Will Heat Your Living Room in 30 Minutes or Less

And it costs tree dollars and fitty cents to fuel it

Three dollars and 49 cents.

That’s how much it will cost you to warm your living room for approximately a week this winter, thanks to a new-to-market terra cotta heater that runs on miniature tea candles instead of electricity.

Called the Egloo, the dual-domed device can increase the temperature of a 90-square-foot room by approximately 10 degrees within half an hour. And the candles it uses are a good spot cheaper than your heating bill ($3.49 for 100 of ‘em), according to Inhabitat.

Effective over time, the 3D-printed winter warmer stores the heat that’s produced by the candles and gradually releases it (the mechanics are similar to a radiator), even after the candles have burned out.

The Egloos — which range in price from $50 to $100 — certainly aren’t the most complicated heaters in the world, but they do offer good bang for your buck and, with a number of different colors and textures available, they can really help tie the room together, dude.
