Another question on that same line: If the exhaust is mostly steam can that be vented right into the green house? Is there any co2 coming out with the gases? Thanks.

The exhaust has as much H2O(steam) as there is CO2. Even though the RMH is really good, you still have Nitric oxides/acid, some sulphur oxide/acid and carbon monoxide, VOC and whatever did not get completely burnt. You never really want to inhale fire exhaust the carbon monoxide and other stuff is heavy and will settle to the ground possible killing pets, childrens and even you if you stay in there too long. I just dont think that it is worth it.

This could be a real drawback for this idea of mine. I can see where if you are inside a home tending a fire throughout the day would not be a problem but, inside a green house you may not want to be inside there all day to tend the fire continuously. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
