Overview

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING, Fifth Edition, is an integrated, two-book set that covers theory and hands-on content in separate Classroom and Shop Manuals. This innovative approach allows students to learn fundamental climate control theory, including basic physics related to heat transfer, before applying their knowledge through practical, hands-on shop work. Cross-references in each manual link related material, making it easy to connect classroom learning to lab and shop activity. Updated to reflect the latest trends, technology, and relevant NATEF standards, the Fifth Edition includes new material on next-generation refrigerants such as HFO-1234yf, as well as a bold, full-color design for enhanced reader appeal. This up-to-date, technically accurate guide is a valuable resource for students and professionals seeking ASE certification, or anyone interested in the principles, components, diagnosis, and repair of modern automotive heating and air conditioning systems.
