Using a concise and logical format that explains fundamentals in very simple terms—yet extensively—this book helps readers develop a working knowledge of the design decisions, equipment options, and operations of different building sub-systems. Readers will learn to design, size, and detail the different sub-systems installations, select fixtures and components, and integrate all the building sub-systems with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, and finishes. Organized into four parts, topics include: Lighting chapters cover perceptions, lamps, luminaries, and design examples. Electrical chapters explain the energy form that lights, heats, cools, and powers buildings. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning chapters show how to calculate heating/cooling costs for home/office, determine the size of air distribution components, and how to consider HVAC options and zoning for home/office. Water and plumbing chapters introduces water demand for buildings, plumbing systems for buildings, methods of site waterscape, and plumbing fixtures and components. For architects, constructors, managers, occupants, and owners who wish to refine and improve their understanding of efficiency in building operation.

The complete guide to building technology This comprehensive guide provides complete coverage of every aspect of the building technologist′s profession. It details design and installation procedures, describes all relevant equipment and hardware, and illustrates the preparation of working drawings and construction details that meet project specifications, code requirements, and industry standards. The author establishes procedures for professional field inspections and equipment operations tests, provides real–world examples from both residential and nonresidential construction projects, and makes specific references to code compliance throughout the text. This new edition incorporates changes in building codes, advances in materials and design techniques, and the emergence of computer–aided design (CAD), while retaining the logical structure and helpful special features of the first edition. More than 1,100 drawings, tables, and photographs complement and illustrate discussions in the text. Topics covered include: ∗ Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems– equipment and design ∗ Plumbing systems– equipment and design ∗ Electrical and lighting systems– equipment and design ∗ Testing, adjusting, and balancing procedures for all building systems ∗ Every aspect of the building technologist′s profession, from the creation of working drawings through on–site supervision and systems maintenance Extensive appendices include conversion factors; duct design data; test report forms for use in field work; design forms and schedules for electrical, HVAC, and plumbing work; and more.

Energy-Efficient Electrical Systems for Buildings offers a systematic and practical analysis and design approaches for electrical distribution and utilization systems in buildings. In addition to meeting the minimal safety requirements set by the National Electrical Code (NEC), the design approach consider the life-cycle cost analysis of designing energy efficient electrical distribution systems as well as integrating renewable energy technologies into both residential and commercial buildings. The book first provides a general overview of basic power systems commonly available in buildings. Then, detailed discussions of various components of typical building electrical distribution system are outlined through several chapters including transformers, protection devices, conductors and conduits, power and lighting panels, and motor control centers. The book includes several illustrations and numerous examples and analysis exercises are included, along with detailed design examples.
