Energy is an important material foundation of the economical and social development. Develop and use renewable energy is importance and many countries made clear renewable energy development goals in the world. China is actively promoting renewable energy applications in buildings, solar heating and solar hot water systems are important part of it. In China, solar radiation is large in summer and only solar water heating needed, solar collector area need small. In winter, both solar hot water and solar heating needed, but the solar radiation is smaller, so the solar collector areas have multiplied. The relevant norms and the manual give the methods for calculation solar collector areas for solar heating and solar water heating used alone. But they did not give the method of how to calculation the solar collector areas when the solar hot water and solar heating used at the same time. This paper combination of meteorological parameters, simulates the typical architectural which use solar heating and solar hot water at the same time, and gives the method of calculation solar collector area.
