Covering the full range of HVAC systems used in today's facilities, this hands-on reference provides all the details you’ll need to fully understand how HVAC systems operate. Comprehensive in scope, the book separates out each of the major system components and controls for air, water, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, clearly illustrating how each system, subsystem, control or component contributes to providing the desired indoor environment. You’ll learn why one component or system may be chosen over another with respect to design, application, energy conservation, indoor air quality, and cost. Also covered are both heat flow and fluid flow basics and related calculations, and fundamentals of system testing for verification of overall performance. The fully updated third edition adds new chapters on system selection and optimization and on Lexicon, and includes many new and updated photos and illustrations, along with other useful working aids for HVAC involved professionals.
