- I want to move Florida attic heat to swimming pool. Will pumping pool water thru a car radiator work?
My attic gets very hot even with the exhaust fan I installed. I would like to move than heat to my swimming pool. I currently have a FAFCO solar pool heater where the pool pump pumps water up onto my roof and thru the 12' long solar panel and down back into the pool. I would like to free up roof space for PV solar panels but still want to heat my pool. Electric pool heater will cost me over $4000 plus electrical cost to put in 50 amp fuse. I could divert the water being pumped to the roof instead into my attic and thru some sort of heat collector to move that heat to the pool. Will a car radiator work in reverse to collect heat from the air? Could be a series of car radiators hooked together. How would a car radiator react to pool water? I would have the collector sit in or above a drain pan just in case. What other problems am I not thinking about? Thanks! Kevin
