Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
This manual analyzes and compares available HVAC systems--from cooling plants, boilers, and heating systems to distribution and control systems. It explains what to look for in choosing HVAC equipment for new construction, and replacing, repairing, and upgrading existing systems. System comparisons are based on cost (installation, maintenance, and operation), flexibility, and availability, among other factors.
