Solar Thermal for Pool ... and Garage?

Posted by don46 (My Page) on

I'm building a new garage and pool in back, and will have solar panels mounted on the roof of the garage. My wife wants to use a corner of the garage for a winter greenhouse, to keep tropical plants over the winter. We'll have lots of southern window exposure. I'm wondering if I could divert some of the heat from the panels into the garage to help the plants through the winter. We would not be using the pool during the winter.

Any ideas?
