    you could use the enrgy, and hook it up to a fridge, or a airconditioner. Do you know how an airconditioner works. If you dont, go to www.howstuffworks.com and check it out.

    Or you could use the energy to pump water through pipes near your coil. Or why not coil your copper around the water pipe... or use the energy to run a fan... or a Peltier device... or to run a liquid-nitrogen-making machine...
