    That is a very old idea. I went to a company in the UK about 30 years ago any they used the heat from their computers to heat the whole office complex and had enough left over to heat a swimming pool for staff use.
    Also back in the 70's when there was a fuel crisis and offices could not be run above 60 degrees, I was at Rolls Royce in Derby and their computer centre was built into the centre of the office complex so that the computer heated the offices. That complex actually had to use nearly twice as much power to cool the offices down to the government imposed limit.
