The concept of ‘thermal heating efficiency’, G, considered as a duel of Carnot efficiency, offers a suitable method to test the validity of second law of thermodynamics. This concept claims to offer us many practical (therefore, experimentally testable) advantages, specifically, economy in heating houses, cooking, besides others. For example, if one unit of fuel when burnt inside the house gives Q joules of heat, the thermodynamic method based on this concept offers as much as 10 Q joules for the same one unit of fuel, giving a 10 fold economy in heating houses. We show in this article that the economy claimed is a myth and we can get no more heat into the house using this method than that we get by burning the fuel inside the house. We propose, the concept of thermal heating efficiency as a suitable method to test the validity of the second law of thermodynamics.
