In order to solve the contradiction between heating supply and demand in solar energy system in a residential area of Ordos, a solar heating system has been designed, tested, and analyzed for over a month. The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate the primary energy consumption, the carbon dioxide emissions, the initial investment, and the operation costs of the floor radiant and forced convection radiator configuration on the overall performance of the system, and analyzes its potential economic benefits. A parametric analysis has been performed in order to investigate the performance of a solar heating system integrated with dynamic automatic control system upon varying the different terminal device. Results from the present study indicate that the thermal comfort of the proposed system with forced convection radiator configuration is better than the conventional system, And the above four indices reductions from energy efficiency improvements and solar energy supply exceed over 50%.
