382 – Heating with less wood – part 2

In this episode Paul and Jocelyn continue their talk about how they heated their house with 0.6 cord of wood. They talk about the things that contributed to them using more wood than would have otherwise been necessary: e.g. no curtains on the windows and the windows not being able to close properly because of ice on the sills. They also talk about things they do to reduce the amount of wood needed – e.g. using incandescent light bulbs, dog bed warmers not using vents in the house and cooking home made food.

They discuss why rocket mass heaters are not more known in the world and why people who have no experience with RMHs are so quick to dismiss their efficiency.

They refer to the YouTube series about common misconceptions about RMHs:
