Hello Bob,
Concerning hydronic heating, and your book.
Do you have rule of thumb calc's for collector area vs. sq/ft of house. Given of course a well insulated home. How about water tank (heat storage) sizing vs colector area. Any tips you might share here? Im thinking of going with a drip back/down system to avoid cost of anti-freeze. The whole thing will run on vdc as we are 100% solar electric.
Im not sure I have given you enough to answer but tried...
Thanks in advance,
Jim

Bob,
I found you answered this question in another persones thread. No need to repeat.
 
Forget Steve. Look at this tiny ad:
