Heating with Renewable Energy is a new textbook written by John Siegenthaler, and published by Cengage Learning. This 850 page full colour text shows how to design and construct practical systems that supply space heating and domestic hot water using renewable energy heat sources.

The book explains how to merge renewable heat sources such as solar thermal collectors, heat pumps, and wood-fired boilers with the latest hydronics hardware and low temperature distribution systems to assemble efficient, reliable, and economically sustainable systems.

This heavy illustrated text covers the hydronic “building blocks” used on all systems. It provides detailed discussions for each type of renewable energy heat source. The book includes the analytical tools needed for proper design, and gives many examples of how they are used.

It combines hardware and design concepts into several complete system designs for each type of renewable energy heat source. This text is fashioned after the highly successful Cengage text: Modern Hydronic Heating, For Residential and Light Commercial Buildings, now in its 3rd edition. It is written by an experienced engineer for those who want to design and construct practical, efficient, and “economically sustainable” systems.

The book is available at hydronicpros.com/publications/index.php?id=34 for US$ 149.
