Planning Solar Water Heating Systems - 3 PDH

This course provides guidance for the planning of active solar energy systems to preheat domestic and service water. The systems treated by this publication are liquid based. Guidelines apply to the larger commercial-scale applications that require an effort on the part of the designer, as opposed to residential-sized "packaged" systems, which in the past have been available from a number of manufacturers. The concepts developed in this document are targeted for new construction, although most are also appropriate for retrofit applications.
