They are actually cheaper to use to heat or keep a swimming pool warm the natural gas is. Since all the heat is waste heat that you are paying to get rid of anyway.
Yes sir, you are correct.. More or less.. pulls the heat off the condenser side of your split system

Hot water from AC


We use condensing units here to heat outdoor swimming pools in summer here ,, they are water cooled condensers instead of air cooled .Works very well ..... gotta run a/c in summer anyways why not put the energy to good use .. A mfg in montreal mfgs a unit that "dehumidfes/heats the pool water /removes humidity and even reheats the air "on indoor pools and they are very cost effective and work very well

They usually had water lines ran from the water heater to it, and it has/had a circ in it that would run when the A/C ran. If the hot gas temp was above 120░ the circ would run to heat the water in the water heater, provided the water heaters water temp was not above set temp.
