This practice sets forth the acceptable installation and service use of solar space heating systems for one- and two-family dwellings to help ensure adequate performance, safety, and consumer satisfaction. This practice, however, does not apply to Rankine cycle, heat pump, or high pressure vapor systems, and is not intended to abridge safety or health requirements. Specifications are provided for the following system components: collector subsystems; thermal storage devices; controls and safety devices; piping, ducting, and ancillary equipment; electrical wiring; and auxiliary (nonsolar) space-heating equipment.
1.1 This practice covers solar space heating systems for one- and two-family dwellings. It sets forth acceptable installation and service practices to help ensure adequate performance, safety, and consumer satisfaction.
1.2 This practice is intended to describe acceptable practices for space heating systems in new and existing dwellings and shall not be construed as the optimization of good practices.
1.3 This practice does not apply to Rankine cycle, heat pump, or high pressure vapor systems.
