Markus Padourek wrote:Is this purely because the hot air meets with the cold air?

Markus Padourek wrote: - If one burns correctly, how much smoke is there visible over the duration of a whole run? I assume there will be some smoke at the start-up and maybe the end? Are there some videos that could be shown?
Markus Padourek wrote: - How long is the "start-up" phase of a well-built and well-lit batch-box or dsr RMH? Some people were specifically worried about that phase, knowing it is the most polluting one and arguing that one central stove, distributing the heat to all houses, would be more efficient and reduce the pollution from the start-up phase (which I don't think I agree with, if we also consider line-loss and other possibilities we now loose, like cooking, etc).

Maruf Miliunas wrote:Also, are there any mentions of air intake systems? I heard of designing an air pathway from the outside to warm up as it flows underneath the house before it enters the burn chamber, though I haven't found any information on that.
