In many climates buildings are unable to provide comfort conditionsfor year-round occupancy without the benefit of a heating system,and most HVAC engineers will routinely be involved with issuesconcerning the design, installation and performance of suchsystems. Furthermore, in temperate climates, heating of buildingsaccounts for a large slice of annual carbon emissions. The designof heating systems for maximum efficiency and minimum carbonemission is therefore now a matter of prime concern to all HVACengineers. The book provides an up-to-date review of the design,engineering and control of modern heating systems. Part A dealswith heat generating plant. While this concentrates on conventionaland condensing boilers, small-scale combined heat and power systemsand heat pumps are also discussed. Part B deals with heat emitters,pipe circuits and variable-speed pumping, hot water service,optimum plant size and the vital issues of plant and systemcontrol, including sequence control of multiple boilers. Techniquesfor managing the energy use and running costs of heating systemsare also discussed. The authors have brought together over a half-century ofcombined experience covering all aspects of the building servicesIndustry to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive text that isboth technically rigorous yet highly practical. This makes the bookequally relevant to the busy HVAC engineer looking for a handypractical reference, the student looking to build on their basicknowledge or the researcher interested in key issues of heatingsystem design and performance.
