In the winter, the heat vents into the house, driving down the cost of the heating bills. In the summer, solar panels on the roof provide the electricity for the miners, and you vent their heat to the exterior. Factor in the profits from the mining operation, and the net energy expense of the house becomes zero! Patent pending
i can't find a link but i think some startup are already testing this in Germany.
