Product Description

Solar heating is considered by many to be a new invention. Yet, when you think about it, solar heating is the oldest form of heat known to humanity. What is new is the recent realization that the sun can be utilized to supply all or part of the heat for a home. In the past century, when fossil fuel was cheap and in seemingly endless supply, the trend in home designs was away from efficient systems which made use of the sun's rays for heating and cooling. Now, homes are being planned so the sun can provide a large percentage of the needed heat--even on cold winter days. This is the passive solar-heated home. Another type of design makes use of panels on the roof or in the yard to collect the heat from the sun and distribute it throughout the home. This is the active solar-heated home. In this book, the author gives a complete description of all types of solar heating and related subjects. The nature of sunlight, and factors to consider to best utilize it are first discussed. Then the importance of insulation in a solar-heated home is covered. Next, thorough discussions of all facets of active heating (and cooling) systems are given. The complete active solar-heating picture--from the collectors and associated hardware, to the heat storage mediums, and distribution of the heat is detailed. Both hot-water and forced-air systems are included. Separate systems and systems to add on to the existing heating systems are discussed. Variations to suit almost any application are described. The question of payback, that is calculating the amount of time it will take for a solar installation to pay for itself, is addressed. Even solar heating of a swimming pool is detailed. Various passive heating designs--and the storage and conservation of passive heat--are thoroughly discussed. Solar greenhouses is just one of the many other subjects covered in this easy to understand, fact-filled guide for anyone interested in rediscovering the sun. ....read more
