Solar Energy for Space Heating & Hot Water.
Energy Research and Development Administration, Washington, DC. Div. of Solar Energy.
This pamphlet reviews the direct transfer of solar energy into heat, particularly for the purpose of providing space and hot water heating needs. Owners of buildings and homes are provided with a basic understanding of solar heating and hot water systems: what they are, how they perform, the energy savings possible, and the cost factors involved. Both liquid and air solar collection systems are practical today. For convenience, most of the examples given relate to liquid systems. (Author/MLF)
