Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book provides some great information about heating buildings with hot water that can be applied to solar thermal heating systems. I could never have afforded a new copy but I was able to get a good used copy from a library that was in great condition. The copy I got was from 1980 but fortunately the laws of physics haven't changed must.
The only downside is that some of the newer products available aren't included in this book.

Format: Hardcover
This edition is over 30 years old and was out of date in 1979. However, this is still my go to design book for hydraulics, fan laws, steam and pipe design. The book is also very useful when looking at old systems that may have been designed using this book.

I use chapter 8 (piping) most of the time. I sometimes use the beginning of chapter 7 (space heating) for steam design. The remainder of the book has nuggets of information about loads not found elsewhere but otherwise the information is of historical interest only.

My four star evaluation is mostly for the offerings of chapter 8 (piping).
