ASHRAE Updates Air-Conditioning Systems Design Manual


Latest News > Industry News

ASHRAE's Air Condition Systems Design Manual, which bridges the gap between engineering theory and practical application, has been updated and is now available from ASHRAE.

The manual, intended to assist entry-level engineers in the design of air-conditioning systems, "bridges the gap between real-world design practices and the theoretical knowledge acquired in academic courses or textbooks," said Walter Grondzik, P.E., editor of the guide. "Such courses and books usually focus on theoretical calculations and procedures—the manual focuses on applications," he added.

The new version has been updated with new materials in a number of key areas, including:

  • The various stages of the design process and the role of HVAC&R systems design in each stage,
  • The commissioning process,
  • Indoor air quality,
  • Green design for HVAC systems in high-performance buildings.

The Air-Conditioning System Design Manual is available from www.ashrae.org at a cost of $89.95 for non-members, and $71.95 for ASHRAE members.
