The present invention is directed to method and apparatuses for modifying the air of a localized zone to suit personal comfort. This invention includes the heating or cooling of the air in the localized zone with a novel apparatus and inhibiting the concurrent release of byproduct air at undesirable temperatures while using a heat pump. The apparatus includes a thermal storage mass that provides a reservoir for the undesirable heating or cooling effects for later restoration. This restoration would occur at a predetermined time in predetermined amounts, ...
1. An apparatus for conditioning a localized zone comprising:a thermal storage reservoir comprising a thermal storage mass; a first heat exchange surface in communication with the thermal storage mass; a second heat exchange surface located proximate to an air stream, said second heat exchanger in communication with a heat pump device having a voltage applied thereto, said heat pump device in communication with both heat exchange surfaces and capable of reversibly transferring heat from the first heat exchange surface to the second heat exchange surface;...
