You can add a coil of copper tubing around the flue and through the use of tanks, and most importantly, pressure relief valves, you could effectively make a boiler. You could then use that to heat your space...
You just have to make sure you don't over-pressure your tank because you are making some incredible pressures when you start turning water to steam...
