A heating system utilizing a fuel bearing multi-tube water jacket having a lower header, an upper header vertically spaced from the lower header, a plurality of spaced curvilinear hollow heat exchanging tubes connecting the manifolds, and a hollow plate-like baffle connected between the manifolds. The water jacket may be positioned within a conventional fireplace for supporting burning fuel to heat fluid circulated through the heat exchanging tubes and plate-like baffle for heating areas remote from the fireplace. The water jacket may be utilized in conjunction with a heat exchanger positioned within the warm air duct of a forced air furnace. A pump for circulating fluid through the water jacket and heat exchanger, and a blower associated with the forced air furnace are operated in response to the temperature of the heated fluid.
