Create a direct link between your education/training program and the residential construction industry! Training materials are now available for many of the residential crafts based on skill standards developed by the nation's leading builders and educators. The result of a strategic partnership between the National Association of Home Builder's Home Builders Institute and Thomson Delmar Learning, the Residential Construction Academy Series is the perfect way to teach essential workplace skills to people new to the building trades. Based on national skill standards, this full-color, comprehensive HVAC book is intended for aspiring technicians and covers the installation, startup, and service of residential air conditioning and heating systems. The first section explores matter, energy, heat, and the basic refrigeration processes, with a view towards building a working knowledge of the behavior of heat and how it is transferred. Detailed information on safety issues and the system installation process follows, with step-by-step procedures that clearly illustrate the key skills needed to properly install a system. The startup and service section shows readers the steps that must be followed to make certain that airflow through the system is correct and that the amount of refrigerant in the system is within an acceptable range. Coverage concludes with the installation and service of oil, gas, electric, and geothermal heating systems, as well as boilers, hydronic heating, and radiant heating.
