Heating with wood is continuously thought to be a natural and economical alternative to electricity or fossil fuels. On the other hand, even with a relatively new and efficient woodstove, many cords of wood are required for burning over the course of a single winter, and incomplete combustion can contribute to poor air quality. A rocket mass heater is an earthen masonry heating system which provides clean, secure, and efficient warmth for your home, all even as the usage of 70 to 90 percent less fuel than a traditional woodstove.
These unique and beautiful installations provide luxurious comfort year round. In cold weather a couple of hours of clean, hot burning can provide twenty or more hours of steady warmth, even as the unit’s large thermal mass acts as a heat sink, cooling your home on sizzling summer days. Packed with hard-to-find information, The Rocket Mass Heater Builder’s Guide includes:
