You didn't state your skill level. This one is the simplest and best suited for beginners.

Residential electric hot water heaters do not have the btu capacity to heat much space when used as a source of hvac heat. Plus they were never intended for the sort of duty cycle that would be imposed on them if you tried to use one. If that's not enough you are still using resistance electric heat as your source and it is the most expensive heat source in most areas. You'd be better off just running resistive heat in a forced air handler. There is no magic heat for free. Laws of energy conservation definitely apply in the hvac world :-)

they already have such a thing, but *most* have not used wood since the turn of the last century..... its called a BOILER
FWIW, maybe you should be looking in survivalist type news groups. Everybody here is into stuff that is a bit more modern and up to date.

All you should get are "smart arse comments" when you have no sense of humor and most importantly are unable to articulate a question that does not require mind reading skills.
Maybe a good wank or two would improve your disposition. You'll need a thicker skin when your total technical summary for equipment is "a used hot water service" and a description of the equipments application is, " to warm myself ".
I found all sorts of DIY for old water heaters (if that's what you're talking about) on my first search.
No one worth there salt will dance around you by asking you numerous questions and make you the center of attention/Queen for a day.
Other then the lack of humor and articulation, it DOES appear you approve of DIY scenarios.
So here's your DIY instructions for finding what you want on-line: http://www.google.com/support/?ctx=web

If all you want to do is warm yourself perhaps all you need do is join "tubgirl". Im sure that would keep you warm. Would you like the link? Bubba
