Heating a Greenhouse with a Rocket Mass Heater

Postby Lightening Bug » Thu Apr 12, 2018 8:46 am

Looking at articles about Rocket ovens and heaters I came across using them in a Greenhouse. The article includes many photos of the Greenhouse being built too. Comments below the article are interesting too because some have suggestions for alternate ways of doing some of the layout. It works for this group because they have access to a large amount of oak wood nearby.

Thought some of you might find it of interest. Quote from the article -

We call it the Epic Greenhouse Rocket-Mass Heater because of it’s sheer size and multiple modifications we designed into it. The whole stove is built around an 8″ flue system that exits outside of the greenhouse below floor level, under the greenhouse end-wall, and then turns towards the sky.

Take care. :D
