Would this work? Would it be effective enough
to replace a fan? I have been thinking about how I could replace various electrical devices. One of the things has been "the kitchen setup". The stove(range?) of course
as it sucks more than any solar
panel I want to pay for. The alternatives are gas (natural or propane) or wood
. Propane is probably the cheapest and also what would be easy to start with while building a better solution. Gas needs to be vented. Wood: The Rocket Mass Heater
really has no way of being used for all the cooking needs. The fire box is too small to use as an oven
, and the top of the barrel is too high and a bit small for full time cooking. In this post: Rocket kitchen
they show a rocket style cooking centre that could replace a conventional electric stove or a cast iron
wood cook stove. It has individual controls too. It also needs venting. Even using a cast iron wood stove
for cooking needs venting. A cast iron cook stove might be a good solution, but for me at least, the cost is too high.
Anyway, here is a rough (very) picture of my idea.
