Solar Heating and Cooling of Residential Buildings: Sizing, Installation and Operation of Systems.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Solar Energy Applications Lab.
This training course and a companion course titled "Design of Systems for Solar Heating and Cooling of Residential Buildings," are designed to train home designers and builders in the fundamentals of solar hydronic and air systems for space heating and cooling and domestic hot water heating for residential buildings. Each course, organized in 22 modules, provides 44 hours of instruction. The modularized structure of the training courses provides considerable latitude in organization and presentation, especially with regard to the time period over which the course could be presented. Included in each course are directed periods for computational practice, inspection of working systems, and "hands-on" experience with models. Course standards and needs were developed by interacting with architects, engineers, builders, contractors, and installers of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems in residential buildings. From the standards and needs, objectives for the course were developed and the curricular materials prepared. (Author/MLF)
