Conventional gas stove (CGS) used in the water boiling system (WBS) is quite inefficient if the mechanism is not considered. In the present research, an assessment has been performed to a CGS by applying a ceramic stove cover (CSC) and also investigated the optimum distance between CSC and the loading to obtain very best efficiency of a CGS. Several parameters used to investigate the CGS’s performance such as water temperature, heating value of the fuel and temperature of CSC have been used in reference to the definition of efficiency. In this study the distance between CSC and the loading is varied by 1 mm to 7 mm by increment of 1 mm. The results show that at a distance of 4 mm, the performance of a CGS in a certain fuel rate of 12.5 cc/s increase significantly indicated by the best efficiency of 46.4 %. It is because of an optimum condition is accomplished simultaneously in heat transfer processes such convection and radiation in the WBS. Although the fuel rate itself have an influence to the flame structure heating the loading, however, the used of ceramic cover have an effect to the exchange between fresh air and flue gas to the combustion process.
