Designed to guide apprentices,
entry-level technicians, and first-year students through their first
experiences in the HVACR trade, HVACR 101 provides a solid
and thorough introduction to the field.
It is the culmination of the
efforts of industry leaders like the Air Conditioning Contractors of
America (ACCA), Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors
Association (PHCC), and Refrigeration Service Engineers
Backed by these organizations and
the high standards and cutting-edge resources that they are known
for, the book begins with simple concepts that provide an overview
of the world of HVACR and its main systems and components.
Coverage then progresses to
increasingly complex procedures, such as maintenance and inspection,
installation and repair, and customer service and sales.
This building-block approach,
combined with numerous practical examples, makes the book the ideal
resource for learning and applying key HVACR concepts.
