HVAC cooling problems. For HVAC techs, building operators, and sheet metal workers. How refrigeration units fit into HVAC systems.

Because problems in the HVAC system can be caused by refrigeration malfunctions, the trouble-shooting flow charts in this book help techs pinpoint the source of a problem and determine when they can fix the problem themselves and when to call a specialist. The book also offers practical tips on how to maintain the cooling system at peak performance. It covers these areas:

  • Cooling in the central air handling system
  • Basic principles of refrigeration
  • Basic compression refrigeration cycle
  • Chillers and different types of compressors
  • Spotting problems
  • Maintaining the HVAC cooling system

A bonus feature is an English to Spanish Glossary of HVAC refrigeration terms.
