  • Strangely enough, I've actually thought about this quite a bit. I've been in computer rooms that have massive cooling systems and thought, "Why can't they use this heat to heat the building?" In Buffalo, this is no small potatoes.

    Likewise, I've thought about the fact that we keep a few things cold (the fridge) while it is freezing outside. The other trick would be to make the air intake smart. You actually don't want your fridge to freeze, but just stay cold.

    Here's another invention I can't find: a heat exchanger for the dryer vent. All that heat goes outside when all we really want to vent is the moisture and any gas fumes (from natural gas dryers). A heat exchanger could let the bad air go out, but pump the heat in.
