Video: How to Heat a Room for 8p a Day

The following video, created by journalist Dylan Winter has become an internet sensation, and has now been watched more than 2 million times.

In the video Mr Winter shows how he heats his home office for eight pence a day, using a metal bread tin, two flower pots and a handful of tealights.

He also explains that his computer and monitors give off heat and help to keep his home office at a nice, warm temperature. But as he'd be using these anyway it seems more than fair that the price of running these isn't factored in to the overall cost of heating the room.

The video has actually been on YouTube since last winter, but the recent energy price rises have brought it in front of a much larger audience.
