Abstract: This chapter examines solar space heating and cooling systems. Initially, the basic system configurations are presented which include active solar systems in which direct circulation systems, indirect water-heating systems, and air water-heating systems are presented, space heating and service hot water systems which include air and water systems, issues concerning the location of auxiliary and heat pump systems, and solar cooling, which includes adsorption units, absorption units, lithium--water absorption systems, ammonia--water absorption systems, and solar cooling with absorption refrigeration. Subsequently, heat storage systems are examined which include air and liquid systems thermal storage. Finally, details of various aspects of system design are presented which include module and array design, heat exchangers, and differential temperature controllers.
