Hello! My husband and I are researching rocket mass heaters as our primary heat source for next winter. We are interested in seeing one first hand to understand the set up/design more. Is there anyone local to Massachusetts or in the New England area that wouldn't mind us taking a look at your rocket mass heater?

Thanks!

Hi Katy;  Welcome to Permies!  

There are plenty of RMH's in the North East.   We just need someone in your area to respond.

Do you have a copy of the RMH builders guide ? If not I highly recommend it. Available from Amazon or from Ernie & Erica Wisner directly. They are master builders with over 1000 builds to their credit. This book is the go to book for all builders.


I am going to add your post to the N.E. forum in the hope a rmh owner will spot your post and respond.

I'm just east of Binghamton, NY, near Route 17/I-86... depending on where you are in Massachusetts, it could be a viable trip.

Thanks, Thomas! We're (anxiously) waiting for a copy of the book from our library.  We currently have a catalytic stove but were hoping for something more efficient. My husband plans to build a rocket stove attached to a water heater sometime next year but wanted to see one in person to see how it works...

Glenn - Thanks for the offer! If nothing closer is an option, perhaps my husband can plan a day trip sometime in mid-February. We'll keep you updated! Thanks again!
