Heating Services in Buildings provides a complete guide, from basic principles, to all the elements of modern water based heating systems. Material is arranged systematically so that each topic builds on the previous material, providing the reader with a detailed and thorough understanding of the principles of heating buildings using water based systems. The highly practical approach is complemented by many simple, easy-to-use diagrams. A key theme of the book is that there is little difference, in the approach to the engineering and design of such systems, between domestic and commercial installations.
Water based heating systems are efficient, flexible, versatile and offer many advantages over other heating systems. These advantages (fast response, good controllability, efficient zonal heating and largely silent operation) all require that initial design, installation, commissioning and maintenance be carried out to a high standard by competent engineers. Heating Services in Buildings provides the reader with a detailed and thorough understanding of the principles and elements of heating buildings using modern water based heating systems. A key theme of the book is that there is little difference, in the approach to the design and engineering, between domestic and commercial installations. The authors detailed but highly practical approach to the subject ensures there is sufficient information for students from both a craft background and those with more academic backgrounds to understand the material. This approach is complemented by straightforward, easy-to-use diagrams. Heating Services in Buildings supports a range of educational courses, including degree level building services engineering; NVQ Level 4 Higher Professional Diploma in Building Services Engineering; City & Guilds supplementary heating course and the Heating Design and Installation Course accredited by the European Registration Scheme (ERS).
