Heating home with Saltx 

In past (in Czechoslovakia and probably not only) there have been used and are heat accumulative bodies - radiators which was charged and then discharged during day ....

They use simple heat absorbing stone.... They have been charged with burning wood and later with electricity. Electric charged accumulative radiator use low cost night electricity to charge (it is still available to buy cheaper electricity in night, so there are also still available this heat accumulative radiators  ). They are quite fine, but they do not provide much output control...

Now I think this can be replaced with Saltx system. Salx can be charged with night cheaper electricity and then store without loses and use when needed.... And in summer same Saltx radiator can produce coldness... Radiators are mostly near walls so excessive coldness in winter could be released outside ...

Yes, @daniel! This is rockstar idea you have! Residential heating and cooling is very important and in fact UK government has generous grants for people installing any storage equipment to balance the grid. In earlier times, electricity plants used to run constantly and only the demand fluctuated making electricity cheap at night. As we switch to renewable energy sources - the fluctuations are much more frequent and require storage all throughout the day. Home heating/cooling battery could be a very good solution for many households.
