So frustrating... I want/need to heat my pool - current day temps are in the mid 70s. You see, I live in a pretty dry area that gets pretty cool at night (day/night swing is generally 30+ degrees) so even though it's 90+ outside, my pool won't get hot. On the other hand, I need to cool my house down, so I run this here AC unit, and it sucks the heat out of the air and pumps it through my house all chilled. That heat is completely wasted.
Anyone ever played around with any mechanisms for either a) capturing that heat and dumping it into the pool, or b) using a pool heat pump and pumping the 'waste' cold air into the house? Would a heat pump even work well in low humidity?
Next summer I've been planning to have solar panels installed, but that still means I'm wasting all this AC heat....
