LIVING SYSTEMS

FEBRUARY 1979

I. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The Living Systems site is a single-family residence in Davis, California.
The home has approximately 1700 square feet of conditioned space. The solar
energy system consists of two independently controlled systems: an active
system for preheating domestic-hot-water (DHW) and a passive system for space
heating the home.

The active solar DHW system has an array of flat-plate collectors with a
gross area of 46 square feet. The array faces south at an angle of 45
degrees to the horizontal. Potable city water is the transfer medium used
throughout the system. In the event of freezing and no insolation, the con-
troller drains the water from the collectors. When water in the collector is
sufficiently warmer than the water in the preheat storage tank, the controller
starts the circulation between the preheat tank and the collector. The preheat
tank holds 82 gallons of water which is supplied, on demand, to a conventional
20-gallon DHW tank. When the water preheated by solar energy is not hot
enough to satisfy the hot water load, a natural gas burner in the DHW tank
provides auxiliary energy for water heating. The system is shown schematically
in Figure 1.

The passive solar space heating system is of the direct-gain type illus-
trated schematically in Figure 2. Incident solar energy is admitted to the
building through both the large south-facing vertical windows (approximately
200 square feet) and the overhead skylight (approximately 80 square feet at
60 degrees from the horizontal). Manually-operated insulating curtains pro-
vide insulation during the night and sunless days for the south-facing col-
lector windows. Manually-operated insulating shutters also provide night
insulation for the skylight glazing and are aluminum coated to provide reflec-
tion to the space below when open. Solar energy is stored in steel tubes
that contain approximately 3600 gallons of water. The tubes are painted blue
and placed near the south window wall and under the skylight. Additional
storage is provided by the 6-inch-thick concrete slab floor of the building
which is covered by brown ceramic tile. Collected solar energy is distributed
by natural convection, by conduction through the slab floor, and by radiation.
Floor covering is minimal: linoleum in the kitchen and eating area and white
shag rugs in two bedrooms. The building envelope is well insulated in order
to ensure energy conservation, with R-19 insulation in the walls and R-30
insulation in the roof. The effective R-values of the windows are in the
range of R-2 to R-10 (uncovered and covered with curtains and shutters). All
glass surfaces are double-glazed with minimum window area in nonsouth-facing
walls. Auxiliary space heating is provided by a gas-fired wall furnace which
distributes the energy by natural convection. Additional auxiliary energy can
be supplied from a wood-burning stove.

The building has summer overheat protection which is provided by several
neans: Roof overhangs over the south-facing glazed areas provide shading;
operable windows in the south wall and a vent in the north wall provide cross-
ventilation of the house at night, cooling the solar storage mass and moder-
ating daytime building temperatures; the curtains and shutters over the win-
dows prevent collection of incident solar energy during the day; and a ceiling
fan assists the heat distribution and the venting process.


II. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION


INTRODUCTION

Performance evaluation is presented in two parts for this solar energy site:
The first part covers the active solar DHW system; the second covers the
passive solar space heating system.

During the month the active hot water solar energy system was inoperative.
Spill-over from the passive system satisfied 18 percent of the DHW heating
load, whereas 99 percent of the space heating load was satisfied by the
passive solar energy system. Operation of the wood-burning stove during
periods of low incident solar energy provided backup energy and reduced the
space heating demand. Daily variations in building temperature were minimal,
indicating the presence of substantial amounts of energy storage capacity.
Comfort levels remained reasonable throughout the month.


WEATHER CONDITIONS, ACTIVE SOLAR DHW SYSTEM

During the month, total incident solar energy on the DHW collector array was
1.4 million Btu for a daily average of 1068 Btu per square foot. This was
below the estimated average daily solar radiation for this geographical area
during February of 1378 Btu per square foot for a south-facing plane with a
tilt of 45 degrees to the horizontal. The average ambient temperature
during February was 480F as compared with the long-term average for February
of 500F. The number of heating degree-days for the month (based on a 65F
reference) was 466, as compared with the long-term average of 426.


THERMAL PERFORMANCE, ACTIVE SOLAR DHW SYSTEM

Collector The total incident solar radiation on the DHW collector array
for the month of February was 1.4 million Btu. The collector system was
inoperative due to freeze damage in December. However, while the collectors
were inoperative, the storage, pipes, sensors, etc. were still working, There
was leakage of 0.047 million Btu from the passive heating system into the DHW
preheat system, resulting in an effective collector array efficiency of 3 per-
cent, based on total incident insolation. There was no operating energy
required by the inoperative collector loop.








DHW Load The DHW system consumed 0.047 million Btu of solar energy and a
measured 1.6 million Btu of auxiliary thermal energy to satisfy the hot water
load of 1.5 million Btu. Losses from the DHW system were 0.15 million Btu.
The passive system spill-over resulted in fossil fuel energy savings of 0.078
million Btu. A daily average of 116 gallons of DHW was consumed at an average
temperature of 1200F delivered from the tank.


WEATHER CONDITIONS, PASSIVE SOLAR SPACE HEATING SYSTEM

During the month, total incident solar energy on the passive collector south
windows and skylight was 8.1 million Btu for a daily average of 1056 Btu per
square foot. This was below the estimated average daily solar radiation for
this geographical area during February of 1381 Btu per square foot for a
south-facing plane with a tilt of 60 degrees to the horizontal. The average
ambient temperature during February was 480F as compared with the long-term
average for February of 500F. The number of heating degree-days for the
month (based on a 650F reference) was 466, as compared with the long-term
average of 426.


THERMAL PERFORMANCE, PASSIVE SOLAR SPACE HEATING SYSTEM

The total incident solar radiation on the collector windows for the month of
February was 8.1 million Btu. The total solar energy collected was 4.3 mil-
lion Btu. The total solar energy for the month of February delivered to the
space heating load was 4.3 million Btu, resulting in a collector array effi-
ciency of 54 percent, based on total incident insolation. Auxiliary thermal
energy of 0.046 million Btu was added to satisfy a space heating load of 4.4
million Btu. (This was equivalent to 0.50 million Btu of auxiliary fossil
fuel energy, which includes pilot light losses not applied to the load.)
This result was a fossil fuel energy savings of 7.2 million Btu. The solar
fraction of this load was 99 percent. The average storage temperature for the
month was 69F

On many days during February, the wood-burning stove was used to satisfy a
measurable amount of the building load. The thermal energy derived from
operation of the wood-burning stove is applied as a reduction to the build-
ing load; that is, the major difference between the building load and the
space heating system demand is the energy derived from operating the wood
stove. During February, this renewable energy was approximately 1.0 million
Btu. Assuming a wood stove energy conversion efficiency of 30 percent, this
1.0 million Btu is approximately equivalent to 11 percent of a cord of dry
hardwood (such as oak). In terms of the savings of nonrenewable energy,
this renewable thermal energy derived from the wood is equivalent to over
1.7 million Btu of fossil fuel energy.

The interior comfort level was given as 690F in zone 1, the south end of the
building, and 670F in zone 2, the north end. The temperature difference
occurs because comfort zone 2 is heated by conduction through the slab floor







,.rI ;wlls, and by convection and infiltration through the doors. The cooler
tei.peratures in the bedrooms are not objectionable to the occupants.

i V, OVATIONS

:',i-in'1 the month of February, the home owner became well adjusted to living in
the passive home. The wood-burning stove was used for at least part of 15 days
during the month. With the space heating load reduced by milder weather,
operation of the reflective (and insulating) shutters and curtains was not as
critical and the operational to incident solar energy went down. The last of
the three shutters was repaired by the owner, but the curtains were not fully
ope-rational. The system was inoperative, but significant preheating occurred
due to leakage from the passive system into the pipes and storage.

^: puted comfort levels inside the building were reasonable during the entire
,-nth in both zones of the building. The comfort level in zone 2 was slightly
lcw.*:,r than that of zone 1, due to the method of transferring heat to zone 2,
.'.ith zone 1 being the primary collection and storage area of the house.


E';ERGY SAVINGS

The solar energy systems yielded a total fossil fuel energy savings of 7.3
m 11ion Btu. The DHW system provided an estimated fossil fuel energy savings
of 0.078 million Btu, while the space heating system contributed a fossil fuel
energy savings of 7.2 million Btu.

III. ACTION STATUS


Repair of the DHW system is being negotiated by the owner.

SITE SUMMARY

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA


SOLAR/I 046- 79/02


SITE/SYSTEM DESCRIPTION:
THE LIVING SYSTEMS PASSIVE SOLAR SPACE HEATING SYSTEM PROVIDES
SPACE HEATING FOR A 1700 SQUARE FOOT SINGLE FAMILY DWELLING. THE
LARGE SOUTH-FACING WINDOW WALL AND CLERESTORY SKYLIGHT PERMIT DIRECT
WINTER SUN TO ENTER THE HCUSE. SCLAR ENERGY THERMAL STORAGE IS PRO-
VIDED BY BOTH WATER FILLED TLBES AND THE CONCRETE SLAB FLOOF. MOVABLE
SHUTTERS AND INSULATING CURTAINS PROVIDE CAPABILITY TO REDUCE NIGHT
HEAT LOSSES. SUMMER OVERHEAT PROTECTION IS PROVIDED BY ROOF OVERHANGS
AND BY NATURAL VENTILATION. AUXILIARY SPACE HEAT IS PROVIDED BY A
NATURAL GAS FURNACE.
