This looks like a great book to have

Synopsis:
Whether you are preparing for a career in the building trades or are already a professional contractor, this practical book will help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to merge renewable heat sources (such as solar thermal collectors, hydronic heat pumps, and wood-fired boilers) with the latest hydronics hardware and low temperature distribution systems to assemble efficient and reliable heating systems. Easy to understand and packed with full color illustrations that provide detailed piping and control schematics and "how to" information you'll use on every renewable energy system, this one-of-a-kind book will help you diversify your expertise over a wide range of heat sources.

About the Author:
John Siegenthaler, P.E., is a mechanical engineering graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a licensed professional engineer, and Professor Emeritus of Engineering Technology at Mohawk Valley Community College. "Siggy", as he is known in the industry, has over 32 of experience in designing modern hydronic heating systems, including those using renewable energy subsystems. He is a hall-of-fame member of the Radiant Panel Association, and a presenter at national and international conferences on heating and building technology. John is principal of Appropriate Designs, a consulting engineering firm in Holland Patent, NY.
