ATLANTA - A new textbook designed to also be used as a reference manual on HVACR design procedures and methods has been published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

"Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning builds on much of the basic information in the ASHRAE 2005 Handbook, Fundamentals, which includes many significant changes," said co-author Ron Howell, Ph.D., P.E. "It serves as a good source for many of the procedures or methods used in HVACR design." Other co-authors are Harry Sauer Jr., Ph.D., P.E., and William Coad.

The book is designed to be used as an undergraduate or graduate level textbook or for self-instruction, and as a reference for those who would like reinforcement of their understanding of HVACR.

Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning elaborates on the use of technical guidance in the Fundamentals Handbook, such as the new radiant time series (RTS) methodology, which includes enhanced treatment of RTS procedures for nonresidential cooling and heating loads; a new chapter on residential cooling and heating loads; inclusion of the new ventilation air procedure from ASHRAE 62.1-2004; and changes in the format and quantity of design weather conditions around the world.

The book includes a CD that contains a spreadsheet for the RTS method and the expanded weather data.

Also available is Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning Solutions Manual, which contains solutions to most of the problems in the principles book.

The cost of the textbook is $84 ($67 for ASHRAE members), while the cost of the solutions manual is $57 ($46 for ASHRAE members).

To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, by mail at 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta, GA 30329, or visit the ASHRAE online bookstore at www.ashrae.org.
