Egloo, a candle-powered way providing a cheaper and more ecological energy, taking advantage of features of terracotta that stores the heat and slowly and gradually releases it by radiation, even after it blows out.
Egloo was born to counter the continual waste of electricity used for heating domestic rooms, offering as an alternative to heating candles providing cleaner energy and economy, exploiting the properties of terracotta which stores heat and releases it slowly and gradually.
Egloo is composed by four elements: the base, the grill and the two domes.
The base offers a space for the positioning of the candles that, once you light them up, will warm the domes up.
Once you light it up, Egloo needs 5 minutes to get to the right temperature. Once the candles are lighted up, they will warm up before the thinner chamber storing a high rate of heat (between 140° and 180° degrees). The warmth is then conveyed to the external covering (between 30° and 50° degrees).
The air intake of the external dome facilitate the outgoing of the warm air stored between the covers, allowing thermal exchange with the room environment.
After only 30 minutes the temperature of the room will be increased between 2° and 3° degrees.
