Summary

rocket mass heaters are a super-effective way to extend your growing season, without spending piles of money on electricity to heat a space. You even burn less wood - rocket mass heaters burn up to 90% less wood than a conventional wood stove, and put out almost zero pollution - pretty stinkin' amazing.

The tricky thing about putting rocket mass heaters in greenhouses is, you're not just heating a dry open space, you're heating wet soil and plants, and it's a little challenging to do it just right so the plants don't get damaged, and the rocket mass heater holds up under the constant moisture. These plans address those concerns, and are specifically designed by the experienced pros (Ernie and Erica Wisner), so that when you build a rocket mass heater in your greenhouse, you only have to do it once.

This rocket mass heater design will keep your greenhouse warm all season long on a tiny amount of wood, but it's also designed in such a way that it's safe for people and plants, and built to last. These digital plans are where your ideas become what's heating your greenhouse all winter long.

These plans are part of the Ernie and Erica Rocket Mass Heater Everything Combo, a digital bundle with just about everything they sell on rocket mass heaters.

Create a warm sprouting bench, heated hoop-house, or wood-fired solar sauna, completely off-grid. This rocket mass heater design includes 30+ pages of detailed plans, beta-testing example projects, and tips on how to orient your sunroom for year-round or seasonal use.

These projects are based on Ernie and Erica's standard 8" rocket mass heater with J-style firebox, but use damp-tolerant detailing for durability in moist or steamy environments. Heat output from these designs can be enough for a small house, but may not be sufficient to produce tropical conditions in an un-insulated greenhouse in all climates.
