Using a 27 foot long dual inner pipe system, this invention allows for the recuperation of lost heat from home generator systems. As the exhaust passes through the inner pipe, water is pushed through 3 water jackets extracting the heat as it follows throughout the system. The water becomes heated and can be used in many practical applications. This means that mechanical energy is being generated from thermal loss. By increasing the efficiency of systems, fewer must be run, reducing overall emissions. As the exhaust cools, it forms particulates within the system preventing them from entering the atmosphere.
