Grover Cleveland School, Boston, Massachusetts. Refurbishment and Status Report.

The solar heating system is a retrofit installation on the roof of the Grover Cleveland Middle School in Boston. The system includes 4,600 square feet of flat plate collectors, a 2,000 gallon solar energy storage tank, plus the required structural steel, piping, insulation, pumps, heat exchangers, and controls to heat the air supplied by two rooftop air handlers. The solar heating is supplemented by electrical heating coils in the rooftop units. Some system difficulties developed during the 1974-75 heating season, and in mid-1975, it was recommended that the system be refurbished. Refurbishment of the collectors, main pump, plumbing system, control console, and instrumentation is described. The appendix includes a more detailed description of the control system as it now exists following refurbishment. It also contains a summary of the operating and maintenance procedures for the system. (Author/MLF)
