Off grid rocket mass heater is probably the most economical way to heat a home off grid.
Heating an off grid home with wood is going to be a lot of work keeping the wood chopped and ready for burning if you use a regular stove. Fireplaces will also burn through a lot of wood.
Both those types of heat sources loose a lot of the heat to the outdoors. A rocket mass heater on the other hand burns all of the wood so there is no smoke and the hot air from the burning is sent into a built mass of cob which holds the heat for hours and heats the home. This method of using wood to heat with is a better way because it cuts way down on how much wood you would actually burn through in a winter.
For many people who live in an area that has access to municipal utilities heating their home is not a concern. However, if you one growing number of people who have discovered the benefits of living off the grid, you will no doubt need to find an alternative solution for home heating.
