About this title


For courses in Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration. This text is designed to prepare students and service/installation technicians to pass the HVAC/R certification and competency examinations. The study guide/question manual covers practically every aspect in the HVAC/R industry-from System Components and Tools, to Electrical Theory and Application, Air Flow Components and Duct Fabrication, Indoor Air Quality and Safety, Hydronic heating, EPA Certification, and System Troubleshooting.

From the Inside Flap:


The HVAC/R industry has progressively become more technical. With new technology, industries are requiring their employees' skills be updated to match the current changes. HVAC/R competency/certification tests are directed toward students and technicians at all skill levels. As a result, national certification competency exams are being offered by many organizations, including the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI), Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), Refrigeration Service Engineer Society (RSES), and the ESCO Institute.

The Guide to the HVAC/R Certification and Competency Tests is designed to help students and technicians pass competency and certification exams. This book is divided into two areas: a Study Guide and a Question Section. The Study Guide and the Question Section cover System Components and Tools; Electrical Theory and Application; Air Flow Components and Duct Fabrication; and Indoor Air Quality and Safety. The Question Section covers one additional topic: Service and Troubleshooting.

The student/technician will benefit most by reading the Study Guide first. Then, the student should turn to the Question Section for the related statement. For example, the first statement in question 1 of System Components and Tools (Hand Tools) reads "A torx driver has a star shaped head that is used on torx type screws." The student would then turn to the same section in the Questions and try to answer question 1.

In Section Four of the Study Guide, an EPA Certification Study Guide has been provided to assist the student in successfully passing Type 1, 11, III, and Universal Recover/Recycle Certification Examinations.

It is the hope of the authors that all information provided in this book will assist the student in successfully passing certification exams offered by any HVAC/R national organization. Acknowledgments
