We expect snow on Tuesday so it was really great to get this Liberator Rocket Heater installed and past inspection so we didn't have to be up on  slippery roof putting in the stainless steel liner. The tile on the hearth pad has a fun story. When we went to talk to our client about the type of tile we were going to install on the hearth pad they pulled out a box of had decorated tiles made by their friends as a wedding gift 25 years ago and asked us to install them. We love what it does for the room.

For more on the Liberator check out  our previous videos on testing and reviewing the Liberator, or visit them at rocketheater.com (tell them Uncle Mud sent you and you'll get a discount). We have several types of rockets we love but this one is the only one that has a non-electric pellet feeder and a UL listing so it can be installed as a standard woodstove and the code enforcement and insurance people are happy.

When we install a Rocket Heater or better yet a Rocket Mass Heater (sorry, no room for extra mass in this fireplace install) we like to include certain accessories for ease of use. If you have your own list of preferred accessories we would love to see them in the comments. This Liberator Rocket Heater has a lovely non-electric pellet feeder option that we highly recommend. Check out our other Liberator videos if you want to see it in action.

Wow that  looks fantastic, very professional and it is made from metal!
I have seen lots of great looking metal rocket stoves but this forum seems to really hate them!
