Can a few candles generate enough heat to warm a small 8’X12′ room?

My room is small and I try to avoid turning on the heater, so I’ve started lighting one or two candles to try andmake the room warmer. Is this possible, or am I just a victim of the placebo effect?

    A few candles, like a desktop computer, may be able to produce a sufficient amount of heat to warm a small room with good insulation. Your proximity to the candle would of course add to the amount of heat felt from said candle.

    Placebo or not, if you feel the warmth, the candle has served its purpose.
