ACTIVE SOLAR PREHEAT SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||14 June 2002|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE. This manual provides guidance for the standard design of active solar energy systems to preheat domestic and service water. The systems treated by this manual 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.
