Heating with Renewable Energy is an 850-page textbook written by HPAC columnist John Siegenthaler, P.E., and published by Cengage Learning. It shows readers how to design and construct practical systems that supply space heating and domestic hot water using renewable energy heat sources such as solar thermal collectors, heat pumps and wood-fired boilers.  It uses modern hydronics as the enabling technology for these systems. The illustrated text covers the hydronic “building blocks” used on all systems. It provides detailed discussions for each type of renewable energy heat source and includes the analytical tools needed for proper design. Examples are given 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 Modern Hydronic Heating, For Residential and Light Commercial Buildings, now in its 3rd edition. The book is geared to readers who want to design and construct practical, efficient, and “economically sustainable” systems.
