This text book is everything it claims to be and more. The more comes from the fact it starts at basics of various disciplines that can be related to HVAC work and eventually gets to actual HVAC instruction. I was interested in learning about specific parts of the HVAC system which are covered in detail in this work, but skimmed over things that did not concern me as I am not attempting to become fully accredited, just knowledgeable. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing a further or full understanding of how these systems work.
If you are a technician who wants to get better out in the field then this is the book for you. Oh yes there are other text books out there, I have read most of them and I can tell you that this book offers more practical knowledge with a blend of theory than any other book I have ever read on HVAC.
one of my favorite hvac books and i have a lot of hvac books. it really covers a lot broad variety of basics and really explains it well. its an excellent book for intro and experienced engineers and technicians.
I love this book. I bought it when I started class on HVAC-R and eventually this book became the reference for my employer. This book is the encyclopedia for HVACR. With this book I was able to fully understand concepts in the refrigeration world and this book is considered "the bible" to some in the industry. Just be prepared to read, it's thick and detailed.
even though they have moved on to the third edition, this second edition I received was as near to new as I've ever seen a used book. As a bonus,for my purposes, the 2nd edition was as good as the 3rd.
Very good and very thorough. This book has very foundational principles on a myriad of different HVAC related areas. A good reference book if nothing else.
There is a lot of technical knowledge about HVAC in this book. I used it for university and it holds information of almost every part of the HVAC-R industry.
Fast shipping and great book and explains materials as simple as possible.
