I am looking to start gathering information on the feasibility of replacing my current wood burning fireplace with a rocket mass heater. If anybody could be so kind as to point me in the right direction of any information on something like this being done I would be very grateful. Ideally I would like to remove the entirety of my current fireplace and replace it with a batch box rocket mass heater with the possibility of drawing the heat out of the mass and blowing it through the current house ductwork. I am thinking copper piping through the mass with blowers connecting to the primary ducting. I have some basic understandings and a plethora of additional reading to do on the rocket mass heaters in general, but any opinions or direction for specifically the replacement of a traditional wood stove and drawing heat from the mass with forced air is what I am looking for, thanks for all your time and input!
