Yep, my PC doubles as a space heater in the winter.

Yeah any heat produced has to go somewhere aka the room it's in. You could shut it off at night if you don't want it doing that.

Yes. Computers are 100% efficient at converting electricity to heat.

However, at idle, it shouldn't be using much power (and thus not putting out much heat).

It's less the cooling and more the components themselves.

My gaming laptop does this when it's crunching on the CPU & GPU for Seti or Folding@home. But when idle it doesn't take much power. Your computer shouldn't take much when idle.
