This manual was prepared primarily for use in conducting a practical training course on the design of solar heating and cooling systems for residential and small office buildings, but may also be useful as a general reference text.

Only active solar systems are described in this manual. Other books are available for passive designs.2/5(1). Sensible heat-storage technologies including the use of water, underground, and packed-bed are briefly reviewed.

Latent heat-storage systems associated with phase-change materials (PCMs) for use in solar heating and cooling of buildings, solar water-heating and heat-pump systems, and thermochemical heat storage are also presented.

During the daytime, the heating and especially cooling load is mainly influenced by solar radiation, whereas at night dependency on ambient air temperature can be seen. However, the relation to ambient temperature is very weak, as buildings are well insulated and have high thermal capacity.

Along with numerous new and revised worked examples, design case studies, and homework problems, the third edition offers an updated version of the Heating and Cooling of Buildings (HCB) software.Passive solar design takes advantage of a building’s site, climate, and materials to minimize energy use.

A well-designed passive solar home first reduces heating and cooling loads through energy-efficiency strategies and then meets those reduced loads in whole or part with solar energy. Because of the small heating loads of modern homes it is very important to avoid oversizing south-facing.
