Geared toward the HVAC professional, this book details practical methods of HVAC control, and defines the role of controls in easy-to-understand terms. Drawing from years of hands-on contracting experience, the author shares a wealth of field-tested and proven approaches to control systems issues, spanning the full range of electrical, electronic, and microprocessor-based systems. Written in practical, real-world terms, the presentation first explores each of the various mechanical systems installed in todays facilities, and then takes a concise look at how each of these systems is best controlled using currently available control technologies. The book provides a welcome resource for the HVAC professional, or for anyone involved with controls installation and troubleshooting, covering basic rules and equipment guidelines, as well as "rules of thumb," pros and cons, potential mistakes to avoid.
