A water jacket (wet-back) in the fire-box or a water jacket collar on the flue of a fire heater is a traditional way of heating water and is extremely effective. But you may not wish to light a fire on a hot summer’s day and so a fire heater is a good supplement to a solar hot water system.

Insolar has sourced Australia’s best fire heaters and is able to supply them with flue kits and with water jackets already fitted. Your wood fire heater can not only heat your home, but your water as well.

Watch our video on Woodfire Boosted Solar Hot Water under the articles link in the top menu to learn how a solar hot water system and woodfire combustion stove can be connected together to provide substantial savings on your annual hot water runnings costs.
