Hybrid quantum dot-superconductor and quantum dot-oscillator systems have become attractive platforms to inspect quantum coherence effects and heat transport at the nanoscale [1,2]. Here, we investigate a Cooper-pair splitter setup  consisting of two quantum dots, each coupled capacitively to a local oscillator. The latter can be represented either by a microwave cavity or a nanomechanical resonator. Focusing on the subgap regime, we demonstrate that cross-Andreev reflection, through which Cooper pairs are split into both dots, generates nonlocal heat transfer between the two oscillators. The proposed scheme can then act as an efficient heat-pump device. Our findings have interesting potential applications for nanomechanical systems and energy harvesting with quantum dot systems .
