This question might have been answered elsewhere and I just can't find it: Do rocket mass heaters make a lot of noise? I am trying to persuade my beloved to consider one for our new house, but he says that with a name like that, they must be terribly loud. And I honestly don't know. Thanks for your help!

they do growl as the flames burn and the air rushes past them. mine kinda sounds like a blowtorch. you can click my link at the bottom and check some of my videos to hear the sound. I am sure it depends on the type of system you build. even a fire place makes noise. if you had an oil or propane forced air furnace would make noise. 6 or half dozen with the other take your pick everything makes a little noise.

my wife and i love the sound of our stove and she loves it when i start one at night before bed so we can listen to it while we fall asleep. it seems relaxing to us.
permaculture is largely about replacing oil with people. And one tiny ad:
