About the Book

This book is written for students who want to learn how to properly install and service the air conditioning and heating equipment that provides comfort for those who reside within the home. This textbook provides a valuable resource for the areas of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning that are required of an entry-level HVAC service technician, although those actively involved in the industry will also benefit from the material covered. The basic "hands-on" skills as well as the procedures outlined in this book will help individuals gain proficiency in this ever-changing trade. In addition to topics such as heat and refrigeration theory, electrical theory, motors, and automatic controls, this book covers a wide range of topics including the installation of piping circuits, air distribution systems, system installation, startup, and, of course, system servicing. The concepts of mechanical refrigeration, heat pumps, fossil fuel heating furnaces, and hydronic systems are also covered in great detail. The format of this material is intended to be easy to read and easy to teach. - About this book.
