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
Steps To Make A DIY Room Heater
Step 1: First, take one high voltage electric bulb with a red connected wire. Now take a pair of red wires and connect them to one bulb and another wire with the second bulb.
Make sure to open the end of the Wire with insulating tape.
Step 2: Take empty cardboard and make a hole on one side.
Step 3: Now, take a small wooden piece, stick it to the lower of the box, and attach a DC motor to it.
Step 4: Now, attach a small toy fan to the front and place the bulbs in the inbox. Connect the red wire from the bulb to the switch box and turn it on.
Step 5: Now connect wires from the DC motor to the battery.
You’ll observe when the fan starts to rotate and will create heat.
The room heater science model helps students understand the concept of the room heater and how to make it with the best waste material.
Things To Remember
- Carefully use a hot glue gun; it may burn your hands.
- Properly handled knife or cutter; it may cut.
- Working slowly and carefully with the battery.
- Learn all you can about the materials and techniques you’re using.
- Work carefully during wire attachment.
- Work on a self-healing mat to protect your work surface.
