Cistern-Based Heat Pump – Research Done in 1993

One of the most recent search terms on my blog was: ‘cistern for water source heat pump’. I wanted to double-check and searched for this phrase myself - and found an interesting and surprisingly old research report.

Engineering students from Iowa built a working prototype which resembles ours but they did not use a solar collector ... based on a very rough estimate of the heat transfer from ground to the cistern. They haven't tested their system for a whole season and I am pretty sure it could not have sustained heating in winter.
But most intriguing for me was that so far I had figured that 'ice storage' / 'cistern' / 'water tank' powered heat pump systems are a recent European trend - I was not able to find anything in English that wasn't a translation of German papers.

Now these guys from Iowa had been quite leading edge - but due to whatever reason their research had finally not been turned into many deployments or a product. Or it had never been published - I am happy to hear from heat owners in Iowa.

This is an important step. Once on Chrome it's going to enable students to take class notes using the future 'flip' laptops. They will be able to enter a combination of typewritten notes and handwritten notes, drawings or symbols into a Google Doc with a simple flip of the device.

Very surprised at the poor prior reviews here. I almost wasn't going to stay there after reading them but I checked reviews on TA and they were much more positive. I found the TA reviews to be accurate. This is a beautiful hotel with large comfortable rooms in a very pleasant area of Winnipeg. It is on a river park with native plants and nice trails. Adjacent is a charming indoor food market/court with a variety of restaurants surrounding. Above all the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful,

Finn's is a pretty standard casual Irish pub located in the pleasant 'Forks' area. The hamburger I ordered was good but what made my evening there really enjoyable was the bartendress on duty, Jackie. She found the college football game on the TV that I had come in to see, she recommended local beers and let me sample one before I ordered it and was all round funny and fun.
