There are three common types of domestic hot water heaters (not the indoor tanks) fueled by outdoor wood furnaces or boilers. See pictures just blow.
Taylor, Hardy and Shaver all have built-in coils in their furnaces for heating your domestic hot water.



Hardy uses an expensive $350 stainless steel coil


Shaver Furnace uses a less-expensive but durable $100 copper coil, Water moves from the domestic hot water heater to the coil in the outdoor boiler and then back to the hot water heater, with a small 110 watt pump instead of 4500 watts or more for a hot water heater.


All other manufacturers require the use of a side-arm heat exchanger or a plate exchanger, also called a water-to-water heat exchanger; typically a 20 plate heat exchanger is used.

OR

A side-arm is attached (sweated in) to the side your hot water heater.

These heat exchangers work by convection, which means that the differential of temperature and pressure is the only thing that causes the water to move, There is no pump, so it moves very slowly.

See domestic hot water kits below


Side Arm Heat Exchangers

These are made out of solid copper and are sweated in.

Water-to-water Plate Exchanger Hot Water System

Better than a side-arm system is a plate exchanger system which is much smaller and more efficient.

The pump on the furnace pumps water through a plate exchanger and then it goes to your heat exchanger in your ductwork, before going back to the furnace to be reheated.

The 2 heat exchangers are simply plumbed in series.

Every time you turn on your any hot water faucet, cold water is drawn into the hot water heater. It goes through the heat exchanger first, which is kept hot by the incoming water to the furnace heat exchanger (be it the one in your ductwork or another plate exchanger for a boiler application). Your hot water heater is always full of hot water!

An anti-scald valve is always used (not shown here).
