Ideal for technical students and professional contractors alike, HEATING WITH RENEWABLE ENERGY shows how to merge renewable heat sources (such as solar thermal collectors, hydronic heat pumps, and wood-fired boilers) with the latest hydronics hardware and low temperature distribution systems to assemble efficient, reliable, and economically sustainable heating systems. Through detailed descriptions, examples, and hundreds of full color illustrations, the book covers the nuts and bolts issues that designers must understand, beginning with basic building blocks and concluding with complete system designs that show the synergy of detail and function possible with state-of-the-art hardware and design methods. Modeled on the author's highly successful MODERN HYDRONIC HEATING, this practical book focuses on realistic solutions and demonstrates the commonality of renewable energy system design, regardless of heat source, allowing readers to diversify their expertise.
