Everything that new HVAC & R engineers will be expected to learn, from the leading industry body - ASHRAE.
Annotation This book provides a thorough introduction and a practical guide to the principles and characteristics of controls, and how to apply them in the use, selection, specification and design of control systems.
The 2013 ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals covers basic principles and data used in the HVAC and R industry. Updated with research sponsored by ASHRAE and others, this volume includes 1,000 pages and 39 chapters covering general engineering information, basic materials, climate data, load and energy calculations, duct and pipe design, and sustainability, plus reference tables for abbreviations and symbols, I-P to SI conversions, and physical properties of materials.
The 2009 ASHRAE Handbook-Fundamentals covers basic principles and data used in the HVAC&R industry. The ASHRAE Technical Committees that prepare these chapters strive not only to provide new information, but also to clarify existing information, delete obsolete materials, and reorganize chapters to make the Handbook more understandable and easier to use. An accompanying CD-ROM contains all the volume's chapters in both I-P and SI units.
This comprehensive handbook and essential reference provides instant access to all the data, calculations, and equations needed for modern HVAC design.

Contributing to the Fundamentals of HVAC&R Series of textbooks for self-directed or groups learning courses, engineers Lewis and Brooks describe the processes for operating and maintaining a building's heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems and equipment, but also plumbing, electrical, life safety, and other systems. Among their topics are types of maintenance techniques and their application, contractor start-up and hand-over procedures, greening the facility, transitioning from reactive to proactive maintenance, maintenance technician training, and the benefits and cost of implementing computerized maintenance management systems. Skill development exercises are provided. Spiral bound.
Annotation The 2016 ASHRAE Handbook-HVAC Systems and Equipment discusses various systems and the equipment (components or assemblies) they comprise, and describes features and differences. This information helps system designers and operators in selecting and using equipment. ASHRAE Technical Committees in each subject area have reviewed all chapters and revised them as needed for current technology and practice. An accompanying CD-ROM contains all the volumes and chapters in both I-P and SI units.
