Take Advantage of the Latest Guidance on the Hottest Area in HVAC!
As health problems related to poor indoor air quality become increasingly evident, demand for better quality and efficiency in air systems is skyrocketing--making HVAC testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) the fatest-growing HVAC discipline. Here is a practical, nuts-and-bolts manual devoted to this specialty, now revised and updated with new information about such vital topics as: Indoor air quality; Energy recovery systems; Fan surge; Duct leakage; System performance; Temperture control verification; And more! You'll also find new chapters on systems balancing, controls, clean rooms, sound vibration, and solutions to TAB problems, as well as a chapter with a model standard for TAB cost-estimating. Sponsored by the National Environmental Balancing Bureau, the book's clear, step-by-step explanations will help you understand and meet requirements for testing, measuring, adjusting, balancing, troubleshooting, and cost-estimating TAB function for tall buildings, restaurants, hospitals, and other institutional settings.
