Preface to Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology PDF


Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Technology is designed and written for students in vocational-technical schools and colleges, community colleges, and apprenticeship programs.

The content is in a format appropriate for students who are attending classes full-time while preparing for their first job, for students attending classes part-time while preparing for a career change, or for those working in the field who want to increase their knowledge and skills.

The emphasis throughout the text is placed on the practical applications of the knowledge and skills technicians need to be productive in the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry.

The contents of this book can be used as a study guide to prepare for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandatory technician certification examinations.

It can be used in the HVAC/R field or closely related fields by students, technicians, installers, contractor employees, service personnel, and owners of businesses.

This text is also an excellent study guide for the Industry Competency Exam (ICE), the North American Technician Excellence (NATE), the HVAC Excellence, the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), the United Association (UA) STAR certification, and the Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) voluntary HVAC/R technician certification and home-study examinations.

The book is also written to correspond to the National Skill Standards for HVAC/R technicians. Previous editions of this text are often carried to the job site by technicians and used as a reference for service procedures.

“Do-it-yourselfers” will find this text valuable for understanding and maintaining heating and cooling systems.

As general technology has evolved, so has the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry. A greater emphasis is placed on digital electronic controls and system efficiency.

At the time of this writing, Every central split cooling system manufactured in the United States today must have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of at least 13.

This energy requirement was mandated by federal law as of January 23, 2006. SEER is calculated on the basis of the total amount of cooling (in Btus) the system will provide over the entire season, divided by the total number watt-hours it will consume.

Higher SEER ratings reflect a more efficient cooling system. Air-conditioning and refrigeration technicians are responsible for following procedures to protect our environment, particularly with regard to the handling of refrigerants.

Technician certification has become increasingly important in the industry. Global warming has become a major environmental issue. When HVAC/R systems are working correctly and efficiently, they will greatly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases.

Organizations like the Green Mechanical Council (GreenMech) are advocates for the HVAC/R industry and assist the industry in meeting with government, educational, industry, and labor interests to find solutions to the world’s global-warming problem.

GreenMech has created a scoring system designed to help engineers, contractors, and consumers know the “green value” of each mechanical installation.

The “green value” encompasses the system’s energy efficiency, pollution output, and sustainability.

Realtors, building inspectors, builders, and planning and zoning officials will now have some knowledge about and guidance on how buildings and mechanical systems are performing.

Green buildings and green mechanical systems are becoming increasingly popular in today’s world as a way to curb global warming.

Energy audits have become an integral part of evaluating and assessing an existing building’s energy performance. Higher efficiency standards for the energy performance of new buildings have been established.

Higher levels of training and certification have been developed for HVAC/R technicians to meet the needs of more sophisticated, energy-efficient buildings and HVAC/R equipment.
