Wood Fired Hot Water Heater

Wood Stove Water HeaterThe Axeman Fire Flue wood fired hot water heater can be easily attached to your wood stove to produce free hot water. This one piece system, made of heavy duty stainless steel, is a water jacket surrounding a central tube. This unit simply fits between your wood stove firebox and your chimney flue.

Save Money and Energy

After heating and cooling, heating water is usually the highest energy consumer in a typical home. Sometimes up to half of a home’s energy consumption is consumed in heating water. The Axeman Fire Flue wood fired water heater is a simple and practical way to utilize heat from your wood stove that may have otherwise been wasted out the chimney.

Simple to Install

The Axeman hot water heater is designed for maximum heat absorption and minimal cost. The unit is simply installed on top of your wood stove by lifting the chimney flue. Insert it into the outlet of the firebox, then lower the flue onto the Axeman water heater.

Connecting to Your Hot Water System

The Axeman Fire Flue hot water heater connects directly to your home’s existing hot water system. Run a pipe from a T off of your cold water line, to the bottom inlet on the Axeman. Then run a pipe from the top outlet to a T at the outlet of your existing hot water heater tank. All connections can be made with common fittings from your local hardware store.

Natural Convection

The top of your hot water tank should be higher than the outlet of the Axeman. This will allow natural convection to circulate the water without a pump. As the water is heated in the Axeman, it rises and flows into your water heater tank. The cooler water at the bottom of your tank flows into the Axeman to be heated by your wood burning fire.

  1. A friend of mine makes a water-jacketed unit that fits straight on to your fire-box. Your flue then slips straight into the top of the unit — attach your hot and cold water pipes and you’re away.
