Air Conditioning Principles and Systems

Air Conditioning Principles and Systems 4th edition by Edward G. Pita. The book begins by developing the fundamental principles of air conditioning, followed by a description of equipment and systems. The text emphasizes the application of theory to both designing new systems and troubleshooting existing ones. This approach is enhanced by many illustrative examples and problems dealing with real situations. An underlying theme throughout the book is energy utilization arid conservation. Energy codes and standards are described, and each topic is examined from an energy conservation viewpoint, an approach that is essential for all future work in the air conditioning field. A chapter is devoted to solar heating and cooling.
