Abstract:

A feasibility study has shown that because of the age and nature of construction of the Wherry Apartments within the Annapolis Complex, the use of solar energy retrofitted to the existing heating system to supply heat for the space heating requirements is not economically justified. However, because the energy requirements for domestic hot water are essentially constant year round, the solar heat collecting system for this application is much more simple in design. For these reasons, the economical use of solar energy to heat the domestic hot water in these apartments appears promising. Author
