Computer Power in winter

553 3
I was thinking about my computers powel use this winter and came to think that while your house has heat on your computer uses virtualy no power. Since all that computers give off is heat and a little light (and all the ineffiency is heat) then all your computer would do is contribute to the heater. However that means that it cost about double when AC is on.

Is this correct?

It would be funny to live somewhere very cold and heat your house with computers.

I wasn't planning on trying, that would probably be a whole lot of high end computers to generate enough heat.

What I mean is not that your computer power bill actualy goes down what I think is that the power your computor uses is converted to heat and that heats your house. So when your computer and heat are on the computer is using almost no net power.
