In this paper, we show a magnetically controllable heat flow caused by a spin-wave current. The direction of the flow can be switched by applying a magnetic field. When microwave energy is applied to a region of ferrimagnetic Y$$_{3}$$Fe$$_{5}$$O$$_{12}$$, an end of the magnet far from this region is found to be heated in a controlled manner and a negative temperature gradient towards it is formed. This is due to unidirectional energy transfer by the excitation of spin-wave modes without time-reversal symmetry and to the conversion of spin waves into heat. The magnetically controlled remote heating we observe is directly applicable to the fabrication of a heat-flow controller.
