The rocket mass heater is a very sufficient way to heat a house (or a green house) with very little wood. here is how it works:
The sticks stand straight up. Only the bottom ends of the sticks burn. The fire burns sideways. Since the heat riser is insulated, it gets freaky hot. This causes a strong convective current. When the hot gasses hit the barrel, it gives off a lot of heat, which cools the gasses which get much smaller and easier to push around. The gasses that exit are usually just carbon dioxide and steam.
Here (right) is a much better image showing the mighty power of the insulated heat riser, reburning the smoke and powering the whole system.The real magic happens with the heat riser. The strong convective current is what makes the air get sucked in through the wood feed so that the fire burns sideways and the smoke doesn’t come out. It is also the place where it gets so hot that all of the smoke is burned.
