Has anyone ever made a room furnace with a light bulb? I've heard of using light bulbs contained in a metal box.
Any ideas. This principle could work along the same lines as an oil hot water heater pumped through a radiator (you know those 300 lb.+ radiators from older houses), but using the bulb in place of the hot water.. If it was portable, that would be great. I could make a nice cover or wood cabinet around it myself. What would be a good metal to line it with that could magnify the heat of a light bulb. Obviously, this would need to be a safe product. Getting a little warm on the outside is not a problem in our home.
I mostly just need some idea as to what metal to use to magnify the heat of the bulb. Thank you in advance for any help or ideas.
