HVAC simplified in new book from ASHRAE | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Step-by-step engineering design methods and tools are emphasized in a new design manual from ASHRAE.

“HVAC Simplified provides an understanding of fundamental HVAC concepts and explains simple design tools used to create building systems that are efficient and provide comfortable and healthy environments,” said author Stephen Kavanaugh, Ph.D., a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama.

Topics include equipment selection and specification, comfort and indoor air quality, ventilation air, ASHRAE standards, building assemblies, heating and cooling loads, electrical and control systems, and design of air and water distribution systems.

“This publication provides the instruction and tools required to specify HVAC systems for many small to medium-sized buildings,” he said.

The book includes a CD with spreadsheet programs that incorporate design and computation procedures. The cost of HVAC Simplified is $79 ($59, ASHRAE members). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at (800) 527-4723 (United States and Canada) or (404) 636-8400.
