I was thinking in something like this in your window (out) or door (inside house):



Rads on a tub or inside pool to make the water hot

Your most probably right

Yeah, I'm thinking of something like that.

I'm just trying to find creative ways to use the thermal energy that is output from folding, no reason it should goto waste

Maybe I should create a thread to that effect

Mod this http://www.lowes.com/pd_84556-131-L3...uct&facetInfo= to capture air out of the case and use standard dryer duct supplies to vent outside. OR. just buy a standalone fan to place in the doorway and have it pull air out of the room.

I'm sure if you had a huge folding farm, sure. You could probably do something like this. But...

I know your thinking the expenditure might be high, but it is thermal energy, and the power used to create it is already used in the process.

It's gotta be useful for something...

I am leaning towards heating a pool though, by installing RADs into and such, that could very well be a good use for the thermal energy.

how about heating from the floor.. I read about pipes in teh floor with heated water going through to heat the floor... a bit of a project....and not sure how effective just a pc doing the work will be.. but an idea
