      I have a Englander wood stove that I modified to heat my domestic hot water. Started by building a 1 1/2" thick chamber on the right side. The stove is about 2' tall by 2'deep. So the chamber is about 2'x2' 1 1/2". Inside the chamber is a 60' coil of 1/2" . Although heat exchangers are designed to keep your heating fluid and your domestic water separate, a leak is still possible. As unlikely as it is, especially when using an outdoor furnace in an open system, a leak could cause your heating fluid to mix with your domestic water.

    Are you looking for the best wood burning cook stoves for cooking and heating your house? Yes! Wood cook stoves is an icon for rural American people because of it's high Efficient Combustion System. You will be able to use it as a cook stove, baking ovens and water heater with little cost. Water to Water (Plate) Heat Exchangers for Outdoor Wood Boilers When you connect your outdoor wood boiler to you water heater, your outdoor boiler water doesn't actually flow through your hot water heater and out via your tap. Boiler water often contains antifreeze or corrosion inhibitor. The boiler water passes through one side of the heat exchanger while your domestic hot water passes.

    There are three common types of domestic hot water heaters (not the indoor tanks) fueled by outdoor wood furnaces or boilers. See pictures just blow. Taylor, Hardy and Shaver all have built-in coils in their furnaces for heating your domestic hot water. Hardy uses an expensive $ stainless steel coil.   So when burning wood, the heat from the wood stove would "pre-heat" or warm this water before it gets to my electric water heater. So less heating would be required from my water heater and a lower electric bill. this is all leading to an indoor wood boiler that would then be used to heat domestic hot water and then floor heat ect. pressure.

A wood-burning cook stove with a large enough firebox to heat your home is an amazingly useful piece of equipment. It keeps you warm, cooks your dinner, bakes your bread, and dries your clothes.

Add a heat exchanger coil, hot water tank, copper tubing, valves and fittings, and your wood-burning cook stove can heat all your domestic water, too.

Another slightly less efficient method of heating water with your wood stove is to make a maze of threaded brass or stainless steel pipe fittings and lay them on top of the wood stove if your wood stove has a flat top. You could also make a coil of soft copper tubing and set it on the top of the wood stove for the same effect.

This hot water heating system uses extra heat to produce hot water that will stay warm up to 48 hours. The venting on the stove, the heat exposure to the piping, and creosote buildup has destroyed any possibility of contamination. Water heaters were designed to heat water for domestic hot water use.

They were designed to heat up to deg F and run for short periods throughout the day. If your heat demand falls into the design characteristics of a water heater then it may still be worth considering. Standard hot water tanks that are used for heating domestic water should never be used as a holding tank for water being heated by a wood stove.

Standard water tanks are not heavy enough and are insulated. There must be a way for the heat to bleed off. All plumbing must be hard plumbing like copper or stainless steel. Antique stoves' value Antique stove collectors can verify the value of a used vintage stove by looking at its design, age, practicality, number of plates, and condition.

A historic cast-iron, single-plate stove that has a manufacturer's stamp on it is likely to fetch a much greater price than the standard antique stove. Your appliances, laundry needs, cold water temperature, etc. will all affect your hot water costs and the payback period from a water heating system.

When introducing water into the hot woodstove coil i do it slowly so that the water "burps" softly instead of forcefully.Truth be told, domestic wood stove-based water heating systems are not new; they were invented centuries ago.

The Romans constructed incredibly clever central heating systems for public buildings (and the rich also had them, because they were too expensive for plebes) in an era sans electricity, and we’re talking + years ago.I have a woodburning cooker stove with a boiler which heats the hot water in my house, and also powers 3 radiators.

We supply boiler stoves, accumulator tanks and all the mixer valves needed for a central heating system. Domestic heating accounts for over 20% of the UK's carbon emissions so this is one place where you can really make a difference.
