This tutorial will show you how to make a DIY room heater at home with waste material. Electric energy is converted into heat energy through an electric heating process.

Electric heater converts electric current into heat. Every electric heater comprises an electric resistor, and the electric current passing through the resistor will convert that electricity into heat energy.


To make this DIY room heater, you will require the following tools and materials.


  • Electric bulb with connected wire
  • Electric bulb
  • DC motor
  • 9V battery
  • Electric switch box
  • Insulating tape


  • Empty cardboard box
  • Hot glue gun
  • Wooden piece
  • Toy fan
