Hi wally, do a search for water coil, there are several, I will try to find a couple of the threads and post them here.

A hot water coil in your stove will provide some heat for domestic hot water and baseboard heat. But a water coil is not a boiler, it has limited heat capacity. If you are just trying to keep the chill off a room durning cool weather and not heat it during sub zero weather the wter coil will work fine.
