Lochinvar has produced a guide on the use of solar energy with traditional gas-fired water heaters.
It gives in-depth information on specifying and installing bespoke packages combining gas-fired heaters and solar thermal, with technical diagrams and charts. Topics covered include basic design, components and system sizing, efficiencies of solar collectors and integration with commercial and industrial hot-water equipment. There is also a section on legionella control and a full glossary of terms.
David Pepper, managing director of Lochinvar, says, ‘The technology is still new in the UK, and the industry in general is still on a learning curve, so we decided to produce this guide to assist specifiers and installers.’
