Understand Your HVAC System With ASHRAE Handbook

08/22/2017 |

Many major changes were made in the eighth edition of Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning

Global building technology society ASHRAE has released an updated eighth edition of its Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning textbook.

The publication puts forth the basic concepts of HVAC systems and designs, and acts as ASHRAE’s endorsed text for HVAC instruction, both for HVAC specialists and facility management, especially when combined with ASHRAE Handbook — Fundamentals.

The eighth edition has been updated to reflect the changes made in the new 2017 ASHRAE Handbook — Fundamentals, and contains the most current ASHRAE procedures, as well as information on the treatment of building HVAC systems — from basic principles through design and operation. The previous edition was published in 2013.

The HVAC systems book is divided into three major sections: General Concepts, Air-Conditioning Systems and HVAC&R Equipment.

Several noteworthy changes were made in this eighth edition. These include:

  • New values for climatic design information
  • Updated system design and equipment section to reflect recent changes and concepts in contemporary heating and air-conditioning system practices
  • Revised design data and updated content throughout the textbook for stronger continuity with the 2017 ASHRAE Handbook — Fundamentals to reflect current industry practice and needs
