TINLEY PARK, Ill. — Heating and Cooling Essentials, 4th edition, is now available from career and technical education publisher Goodheart-Willcox. The newly revised text is designed to be an introductory learning tool for students pursuing HVACR careers.

For the 4th edition, Heating and Cooling Essentials has undergone a major revision. The company said new content, design, and supplemental learning and teaching aids make the book a compact, yet effective, introduction to HVACR. Using illustrated and simple explanations of complex HVACR topics, the text emphasizes the techniques needed to install, service, and repair air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration systems. The technical coverage on skills and service, as well as new content on soft skills and careers, helps prepare students for further study or for careers.

Goodheart-Willcox has also announced a new author for this edition, Don Crawshaw. “The quality of a training manual is only as good as the person chosen to write it. Don Crawshaw has the credentials to author Heating and Cooling Essentials, providing an excellent resource for training HVACR technicians. Mr. Crawshaw was recognized as a top instructor by The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration News, quite an accomplishment in itself. Furthermore, he is one of an elite group of instructors to have the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) conferred upon him,” noted Howard Weiss, executive vice president of ESCO Group.

The company said G-W Online for Heating and Cooling Essentials is also available to accompany the newly revised text. With G-W Online, an easy-to-customize course management system is combined with student resources and assessment tools.
