The principle of the proposed device is to use part of the waste heat, which otherwise leaves through the chimney unused into the air, to preheat the combustion air. reducing chimney losses and preheating the combustion air will increase the efficiency of the heat source. the device is actually a gravity loop heat pipe with an evaporating part located behind the furnace and a condensing part in the combustion air supply duct. Heat transfer is realized by means of phase transformation of the working medium in the proposed device.
