In many climates buildings are unable to provide comfort conditions
for year-round occupancy without the benefit of a heating system,
and most HVAC engineers will routinely be involved with issues
concerning the design, installation and performance of such
systems. Furthermore, in temperate climates, heating of buildings
accounts for a large slice of annual carbon emissions. The design
of heating systems for maximum efficiency and minimum carbon
emission is therefore now a matter of prime concern to all HVAC
The book provides an up-to-date review of the design,
engineering and control of modern heating systems. Part A deals
with heat generating plant. While this concentrates on conventional
and condensing boilers, small-scale combined heat and power systems
and 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 system
control, including sequence control of multiple boilers. Techniques
for managing the energy use and running costs of heating systems
are also discussed.
The authors have brought together over a half-century of
combined experience covering all aspects of the building services
Industry to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive text that is
both technically rigorous yet highly practical. This makes the book
equally relevant to the busy HVAC engineer looking for a handy
practical reference, the student looking to build on their basic
knowledge or the researcher interested in key issues of heating
system design and performance.
