This course is one of eight courses housed under the award-winning Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series. This five – day workshop on Solar Thermal technology focuses on domestic solar hot water systems, but will discuss the various applications of solar thermal technology. You will learn how to site a system based on solar fundamentals and how to size a system based on thermal load analysis. You will explore system components, types, and designs as well as best practices regarding installation, maintenance and troubleshooting. A hands-on installation of both a fully-operational drain-back and a pressurized glycol system will cap the week.
