Keep it cool or heat things up. This third volume of "Audel's HVAC Library" gives you a comprehensive, hands-on guide to installing, servicing, and repairing all basic air-conditioning systems in both new and older construction. You'll also find complete coverage of specialized heating units - radiators, radiant heating systems, stoves, fireplaces, heat pumps, and indoor/outdoor pool heaters, plus fans, exhaust systems, air filters, and more. It's what you need to complete your HVAC reference library. Make accurate calculations for AC system output; tailor AC systems for older construction; learn to install and service today's popular electronic air cleaners and filters; service less common heating systems such as coal-fired furnaces; install, maintain, and repair humidifiers and dehumidifers; and, handle radiators, convectors, and baseboard heating units.
