A rocket mass heater is a clean burning, high performance burner usually put together using a majority of recycled and/or natural materials, such as cob. Owners claim an 80-90% reduction in wood usage compared to heating the same space with a metal wood stove. rocket mass heaters in a nutshell:
- heat your home with 80% to 90% less wood
- exhaust is nearly pure steam and CO2 (a little smoke at the beginning)
- the heat from one fire can last for days
This could be the cleanest and most sustainable way to heat a conventional home. Some people have reported that they heat their home with nothing more than the dead branches that fall off the trees in their yard. And they burn so clean, that a lot of sneaky people are using them illegally, in cities, without detection.
