Introduction to Solar Heating and Cooling Systems. D.O.T. 637.281 and .381. Student's Manual.
Grimes, L. A., Jr.
This manual on solar heating and cooling systems is one of a series of individualized instructional materials for students. The manual is self-paced, but is designed to be used under the supervision of a coordinator or an instructor. The manual contains 15 assignments, each with all the information needed, a list of objectives that should be met, and exercise questions that can help in meeting those objectives. The assignments are organized into six sections. The first section introduces solar heating and cooling systems and explains how to use the manual. The second section suggests planning considerations for those considering solar conditioning, while the third section covers the various types of solar heating and cooling systems. The fourth and fifth sections of the manual cover the controls and plumbing needed for solar systems and the solar equipment needed. Installation and maintenance of solar energy systems are covered in the final section. A glossary and a bibliography are included in the manual. (KC)
