Modern Hydronic Heating: Residential & Light Commercial Buildings 3rd Edition
: Cengage Learning
From simple applications to multi-load and multi-temperature systems, students learn to use hydronic heating methods and hardware to create systems that deliver heating comfort, reliability, and energy efficiency. Using product and installation photos and hundreds of detailed schematics, MODERN HYDRONIC HEATING, 3RD EDITION transforms engineering-level design information into practical tools. This comprehensive edition features the latest design and installation techniques for residential and light commercial hydronic systems, including use of renewable energy heat sources, hydraulic separation, smart circulators, distribution efficiency, thermal accumulators, mixing methods, heat metering, and web-enabled control methods.
- More "green" renewable energy content inlcued in 'Green Wave' coverage; the ability of hydronics to deliver heat at a fraction of distribution energy and distribution efficiency. Also see information on solar energy.
- Encourages a strong understanding of design and installation with detailed piping and electrical schematics that illustrate nearly every piping and control technique used in modern hydronic heating.
- Presents analytical design tools that teach readers how to assess the thermal and hydraulic performance of proposed systems before they are installed, avoiding potentially costly problems.
- Facilitates the practical application of key concepts with real-world examples based on actual design situations and including references to the book's formulas and data, allowing readers to visualize how they are used in the trade.
- Presents a complete list of variables and their required unit whenever a formula is introduced. Gives examples with solutions and follow-up discussion on a wide range of calculations associated with good hydronic system design.
- Sets readers up for success in today's heating industry with complete coverage of the latest hardware, design concepts, and installation techniques, making this text one of the heating industry’s leading references.
