How To Build A Thermosiphon To Generate Unlimited Hot Water Without Electricity...

Are you looking for a way to generate lots of hot water off the grid? Check out this video on how to build a thermosiphon without spending a ton of money.

A thermosiphon is a method of passive heat exchange, based on natural convection, which circulates a fluid without the necessity of a mechanical pump. Thermosiphoning is used for circulation of liquids and volatile gases in heating and cooling applications such as heat pumps, water heaters, boilers and furnaces.

This guy below built his thermosiphon by taking an old water heater that someone was throwing out and connecting it with copper tubing to a StoveTec Rocket stove with a heating coil in the chimney. Once the fire is lit, the thermosiphon sucks cold water out of the bottom of the water heater and then deposits hot (over 180°F) water into the top of the old 40 gallon hot water heater. This is a great way to make lots of hot water without any electricity. Check it out below…

This was how my parent heated their house for years. Coal-fired heating coils in the burner heated water which naturally circulated through radiators in each room of the house, with the cool water coming back down into the heater to be warmed again…no circulating pump. They also had a second tank which was the hot domestic water supply and that ran off the city water pressure. They didn’t use any outside energy to heat until they switched from coal to oil heat and then installed a circulating pump to move the heated water to the radiators. It heated the house faster, but if power went off they didn’t have heat, unlike the old system which worked fine as long as you kept a fire burning in the firebox.

So what do you burn in the stove that is free and non-polluting?
