In this four week online course, participants will learn the basics of liquid-based solar thermal space heating systems with emphasis on northern climate installations. Presentations and disucssion will cover system types, heat storage methods and strategies, heat exchange methods, boiler and furnace integration, high-mass systems, system sizing, and large and split array collector mounting strategies.
Upon completion of the course students will be able to:
Determine compatibility with space heating systems
Examine integration methods between solar for hydronic and forced-air applications
Compare and contrast solar thermal system types with specific reference to seasonal loads, space heating performance and overheating considerations
Use consumer, system, and site information to size a solar thermal space heating system
