    Is it possible to take a laser and bounce the beam around in a chamber {like a heat exchanger} to create heat. If this is possible, it would be a great way to cut back on fossil fuels. Not sure what it would do to your electric bill though? Oh well...its just a thought.

    I think it would do the same to your electric bill as pure electric heat.

    The laser energy comes from the AC power and dissipates as heat.

    What if they delivered laser energy to the house by fiber optic from a super efficient high powered laser? You could use it for lighting, too! (Just don't look at it to see if it's on.)
