Based on the most recent standards from ASHRAE, the sixth edition provides complete and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. You'll find the latest load calculation procedures, indoor air quality procedures, and issues related to ozone depletion. Also integrated throughout the text are numerous worked examples that clearly show you how to apply the concepts in realistic scenarios.

The revision of this text continues to offer comprehensive treatment of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning concepts:

  • All material is based on the updated ASHRAE Handbook and product criteria and uses both SI and English units.
  • Practical, realistic problems are presented and the latest procedures and issues are covered.
  • Suitable for advanced study in HVAC mechanical engineering, architectural engineering, and mechanical engineering technology departments.

From the Back Cover:

Completely revised with the latest HVAC design practices!

Based on the most recent standards from ASHRAE, this Sixth Edition provides complete and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. You’ll find the latest load calculation procedures, indoor air quality procedures, and issues related to ozone depletion. Throughout the text, numerous worked examples clearly show you how to apply the concepts in realistic scenarios.

In addition, several computer programs (several new to this edition) help you understand key concepts and allow you to simulate various scenarios, such as psychometrics and air quality, load calculations, piping system design, duct system design, and cooling coil simulation. Additionally, the load calculation program has been revised and updated.

These computer programs are available at the book’s website: wiley.com/college/mcquiston

Key Features of the Sixth Edition

  • Additional new worked examples in the text and on the accompanying software.
  • Chapters 6-9 have been extensively revised for clarity and ease of use.
  • Chapter 8, The Cooling Load, now includes two approaches: the heat balance method, as recommended by ASHRAE, and the simpler RTS method.  Both approaches include computer applications to aid in calculations.
  • Provides complete, authoritative treatment of all aspects of HVAC, based on current ASHRAE standards.
  • Numerous worked examples and homework problems provide realistic scenarios to apply concepts.
