After living with a RMH for a couple of years I am sold on the idea of capturing a storing heat. I am sure that someone has experimented with converting the standard metal box stoves into mass storage heaters. How is that working?
What are the pros and cons? Who can I talk to about ideas?
I have problems with smoke back into a small space and I never have been able to get the down draft working consistently. I have been using a horizontal fire box successfully and may have found solutions recently to draft issues. Still I would like to help people get more efficiency out of their home wood heating systems. Modifying existing stoves seems like a good idea.
Stinging nettles are edible. But I really want to see you try to eat this tiny ad:
A rocket mass heater heats your home with one tenth the wood of a conventional wood stove
