The use of solar collectors for domestic hot water over the past 20 years has demonstrated that solar heating systems are now founded on a reliable and mature technology. However, the development of similar, but more complex, systems to provide both domestic hot water and space heating (solar combisystems) resulted in a diverse range of different designs that were not carefully optimized to reflect local climate and practice. Application of energy-efficient building strategies such as improved thermal insulation and use of low temperature heat supply systems is becoming increasingly common. This trend, combined with growing environmental awareness and the subsidies available in certain countries, favors an increase in market share for solar combisystems. The need for guidelines in selecting the appropriate system and designing this system according to the specific needs of the building and the local environment is therefore now increasingly pressing. This book fills that need.
“This book is an excellent presentation of how to integrate different technologies. Most people think only in terms of photovoltaics to produce electricity but by using Solar Hot Water (SHW) technology to raise the level of heat even if not to the ultimately desired temperature a home owner can save a lot on his/her heating bills.”
“If you really want some good scientific material on solar hot water systems then this is a great book for that.
Great for the student that is studying in this area or anyone that is in the business of solar hot water.
The industry could do with a lot more of this sort of material.
“This book is a must for anyone who deals with or want to learn about solar combisystems. The book is actually a study (Task26) about 21 combisystems that generally are installed in many places including real examples based on these systems. It describes important aspects such as designing and dimensioning, behavior and maintenance, performance in regards to different climates and types of construction. Many many references are included. Highly recommended.”
“It’s one of the best purchases I have ever done. With bit of common sense you can adapt designs for your application. The book is also very good for students or those who wants to extend their knowledge about solar heating systems for space heating.”
