Considering the methods of active heating in houses and apartments in the absence of heating, we start with a simple one. You turned off the central heating, but left gas and electricity. It will just say any dragged into the house of heaters and heaters, cut into the network and frying. I agree, and therefore I give, as they say in the army, the additional input consumption of electricity for the purpose of its city-wide economy is strictly limited.
Methods of active heating in houses and apartments in the absence of heating and power outages.
There are no ten-kilowatt tens and diesel and space rocket stoves, no home-made goats with a spiral in a finger thick. To the extent permitted by the authority or circumstances. Like in Armenia. Act!
(caves and burrows) at 40-50 degrees! That is, they raised the temperature to plus 10. And at the same time, they prepared food on the fire of candles. For example, instant soup was cooked in a mug. If you find excess oil or animal fat, you can try to make fat lamp. The northern peoples heat them with their yaranga. So why don’t you try to warm a room in a typical five-story building?
As a wick, the lamp uses fabric, braided rope, a piece of bandage, any other material that absorbs grease and oil well. The wick is wetted or rubbed with fat. The thicker the wick, the more it gives light and heat, but at the same time it requires more fuel. The simplest construction lamp for heating is constructed from small dishes of a saucepan, plate, saucer, etc. filled with combustible material. Two to three wicks fall to the surface of the fat. And set on fire. If freely floating wicks do not light up, they can be pulled out at one end of the tank with one end..
Lamps with wicks held on the surface of a combustible liquid with a primitive frame are much more reliable. They also use any combustible oil and fat liquids. To heat or lift the wick, thereby regulating the intensity of combustion, it is possible by bending or unbending the holder made of wire, a piece of tin, hair clips. The wire holder is best shaped into a round base with a perpendicularly protruding pin. Tinplate spirals or staples. In some cases, the wick can be suspended above the surface of a flammable liquid on two wires (see figure).
And even the ancient, archaic splinter can be useful in an emergency for heating. You can hit the splinter from the middle of a chopped along a dry log. The intensity of combustion is regulated by the angle of inclination of the torch. The lower the burning end is inclined, the larger the tongue of the flame, and vice versa. It is easiest to fix a splinter by nailing a piece of wood with one nail so that it can spin, rising and lowering. For better burning, a splinter can be rubbed with paraffin, stearin, fat.
In all cases, when used in an apartment for heating an open flame, one should be careful about carbon monoxide poisoning (CO2), which in a non-ventilated area can be fatal for people there. In order to prevent disaster, it is necessary to achieve the most complete combustion of combustion products, not to leave an open flame unattended, to close chimneys only after the lights in the furnace have stopped breathing. Bluish flames of carbon monoxide are particularly dangerous..
And further. Keep fire safety in mind. Take a look at your room and imagine how dangerous a potbelly stove standing on this palace next to this wall and sofa can be. God grant that she was never there. But if you still have to install it someday, then take care to cover the space under it with non-combustible material with bricks, cinder blocks, asbestos, metal and remove all combustible materials away, including from the pipe. Perhaps you will burn your furniture and things, but gradually, during the winter, in the stove, and not immediately, at once and with the whole house.
To maintain positive temperature and heating in the room of a house or apartment.
Use fan-type electric heaters for heating.
Hang a foil lampshade on a light bulb. Including kerosene lamps.
To make an impromptu central heating by lowering the boiler in the riser.
To heat massive metal objects on gas (pipes, anvils, scraps of rails, etc.), which, gradually cooling, will heat the air in the apartment.
Use primuses, portable gas stoves, etc. for heating.
Install a stove-potbelly stove made from a barrel, or bath and other stoves.
As fuel, use any wood, dry manure, gas mixed with sand, and even brick soaked in diesel fuel for heating.
If there is no stove, make alcohols, stoves, smokehouses, grease lamps, etc..
When using open flame for heating, you must be prepared to extinguish the fire and be careful not to burn! Bluish flames, dizziness, headache indicate carbon monoxide emission.
