As you can see, our setup employs a coil of copper tubing — located inside a wood burning stove’s stovepipe — to heat the water that’s held in our storage tank. Hot smoke rising through the stovepipe warms the water in the copper coil, which causes it to rise (and thereby draw more cold water into the coil).What is magic heat?Magic Heat is the only UL listed heat reclaimer on the market. Magic Heat is designed for heating appliances with inside flue temperatures exceeding 350 degrees and surface temperatures of the single wall pipe below the Magic Heat exceeding 280 degrees.
