About

Overview

HVACR 401: HEAT PUMPS sets itself apart from other books on the market with its emphasis on the service technician perspective, instead of the design engineer viewpoint. The book begins with a review of the refrigeration cycle in comfort conditioning, and gradually progresses to more in-depth topics, including electrical schematics, maintenance, geothermal heat pumps, and troubleshooting case studies. With content that has been closely reviewed and revised in conjunction with the most respected national organizations in the HVACR industry (ACCA, PHCC, and RSES), this will prove to be a valuable teaching tool that offers your students a wide range of critical concepts, presented in a clear, straightforward manner that facilitates comprehension and encourages them to apply their knowledge. Check out our app, DEWALT® Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.

Instructor's Manual  (ISBN-10: 1428340033 | ISBN-13: 9781428340039)

This instructor’s guide on CD will help place focus on the major trends in the market where there is a demand for more computer usage as this remains a low tech market, and more sophisticated electronic applications that drives the need for training and retraining.

HVACR 101  (ISBN-10: 141806663X | ISBN-13: 9781418066635)

Designed to guide apprentices, entry-level technicians, and first-year students through their first experiences in the HVAC/R trade, HVAC 101 provides a solid and thorough introduction to the field. It is the culmination of the efforts of industry leaders like the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), PHCC Educational Foundation Plumbing Apprentice & Journeyman Training Committee (PHCC Educational Foundation), and Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES). Backed by these organizations and the high standards and cutting-edge resources that they are known for, the book begins with simple concepts that provide an overview of the world of HVAC/R and its main systems and components. Coverage then progresses to increasingly complex procedures, such as maintenance and inspection, installation and repair, and customer service and sales. This building-block approach, combined with numerous practical examples, makes the book the ideal resource for learning and applying key HVAC/R concepts.
