Heating my pool with my house, or cooling my house with my pool?
There has to be a way to do this- I just don't know enough about AC, heat pumps or pools. I live downtown, my house is small (750 sq feet per floor, 2 floors, soon to be 3). Like most city dwellers, I don't actually have a pool or AC, but 2 record hot summers, combined with municipal pools being closed due to Covid are making me reconsider both. The question is this: there must be some relatively simple way to set up an exchange using the pool water to absorb the excess heat from the house, thereby heating the pool and cooling the house. All the commercially available systems I see use 2 separate heat pumps (1 to heat the pool and one to cool the house), but this seems wasteful and sort of pointless, the pool being such a lovely heatsink all by itself...
I don't quite understand how to dump one into the other using the same machine.
Any creative ideas?
