Can I use the output from a house boiler to heat a greenhouse?

I live in relatively cold, rainy Manchester in the north of England and have been experimenting with growing chillies and tomatoes. I've found that they are fine indoors, but die quite quickly outdoors, presumably form the cold. I have an output from my house's gas combi boiler next to my small plastic greenhouse, which outputs steam.

Heating cold frames, high tunnels - Greenhouse Management

Apr 23, 2018 · An additional heat source may be needed on very cold nights as there is limited heat from the root zone. Storing the excess heat from a greenhouse heating system in an insulated heat storage tank during the day and then using this heated water at night may make an economical system. A biomass-fired outdoor boiler could also provide hot water.

Challenges for the Transition to Low-Temperature Heat in

To reach net-zero emissions by 2050, buildings in the UK need to replace natural gas boilers with heat pumps and district heating. These technologies are efficient at reduced flow/return temperatures, typically 55/25 °C, while traditional heating systems are designed for 82/71 °C, and an oversized heating system can help this temperature transition.
