I'm wondering if there would be a way to make a rocket heater (likely no mass?) that you can have on a trailer or sled and just move to the place where you need heat. Set it up outside and run some lines into the building to make heat.
I'm assuming the lines would have to be filled with something that can handle 0F temperatures when not in use and be decent at transferring heat at rocket temps. I'm picturing a vented/open 20 gallon tank of magic juice on a rocket heater. A little pump shoots the juice down flexible lines into the workshop, shed or house that needs heat. In the building is a radiator and fan to blow the heat into the space. In a crazy world a TEG (thermo electric generator) could provide the power for the pump and fan.
Brilliant or silly?
incandescent light gives off an efficient form of heat. You must be THIS smart to ride this ride. Tiny ad:
