Over the past thirty-five plus years, Eugene has been involved in all aspects of the HVAC/R industry from field technician and system designer to company owner, teacher, administrator, consultant and author. Eugene is presently an Assistant Professor and lead faculty member for the HVAC/R program at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, New York. Eugene has twenty-three years of teaching experience and has taught HVAC at several institutions. Eugene earned his dual Bachelors Degree from The City College of New York and his Masters of Science degree from Stony Brook University, where he specialized in renewable and sustainable energy sources. He earned his Certified Master HVAC/R Educator (CMHE) credential from the ESCO Group. Eugene also carries the BEAP credential issued by ASHRAE, classifying him as a Building Energy Assessment Professional. Eugene, an active member of both ASHRAE and RSES, served as the author and subject matter expert for multiple projects including Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology, 6th and 7th Editions, Residential Construction Academy: HVAC, 1st and 2nd Edition, Pressure Enthalpy Without Tears (2006), Heat Pumps, 1st and 2nd Editions and Psychrometrics Without Tears (2014).
  • New chapters added pertaining to new technology used in the field.
  • New "green" sidebars throughout the book provide tips on energy efficiency and address the latest Green Building codes.
  • New topics include inverter-controlled compressors, variable refrigerant flow, ductless split systems, ductless split heat pump systems with heat recovery, ductless split system installation, and pressure enthalpy.
  • A new full color, reader-friendly design with mostly new art work makes technical topics easier to understand.
  • Coverage of geothermal heat pump systems is greatly expanded.
  • Discussions on COP, EER, SEER, and HSPF have been expanded and a greater emphasis is placed on system efficiency.
  • An expanded number of service calls based on actual scenarios encountered by field technicians provide practice in troubleshooting and identifying causes of system failure.
  • Cutaway views of devices allow readers to see inside the system as they explore the operation and function of each of its components in detail.
  • Three chapters aid readers in developing the ability to read and interpret electrical schematic and ladder diagrams for air source, water source, and geothermal heat pump systems, a skill required of all successful technicians.
  • Objectives and a brief introduction, plus an overview of the concepts to be presented in each chapter, help readers to zero in on must-know information.
  • Chapter-end summaries, plus hundreds of chapter-end review questions, underscore key points while providing an effective means for readers to gauge their understanding.
  • An extensive glossary helps readers master the use of key technical and industry terms.
  • Each system component is treated separately, allowing readers to concentrate fully on a single component before attempting to assemble all of the pieces of the heat pump puzzle.
  • More than 50 "For Discussion" topics excite and challenge readers while providing instructors with opportunities to encourage thought-provoking in-class debate.

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0, 4 terms (24 months) Instant Access

ISBN: 9781305584402
DELMAR ONLINE TRAINING SIMULATION: HVAC 3.0 is a 3-D, immersive simulation that offers a rich learning experience that mimics field performance. It challenges learners to master diagnostic and troubleshooting skills across seven pieces of HVAC equipment – Gas Furnace, Oil Furnace, Gas Boiler, Split Residential A/C, Commercial A/C, Heat Pumps, and Commercial Walk-in Freezers. Delmar Online Training Simulation: HVAC 3.0 offers approximately 200 scenarios that allow students to troubleshoot and build diagnostic and critical thinking skills. Two modes within the simulation promote incremental learning: Training Mode and Challenge Mode. Training Mode has fixed scenarios to aid in familiarizing the user with the equipment, the problem needing attention, and using the simulation. Challenge Mode has randomized scenarios within three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Both modes require learners to diagnose a fault or faults and perform the repair successfully while materials and labor costs are tracked. Soft skills are also included within the simulation.
