Solar Space Heating System in Virginia

This is a very nicely planned and executed solar heating project in Virginia. Lots of detail on all phases of the project with sections on planning, installation, costs, and performance.

The system is modeled after our $2K system, but with many adaptations and innovations to suit Kevin's home and climate.

Thanks very much to Kevin for documenting the project and sending it in!

Nearly vertical collectors positioned for good solar access.

Kevin managed to tuck the radiant floor distribution manifold into a closet
