With a degree in engineering, developing a step-by-step process for HVAC energy optimization, comfort improvement and indoor air quality, for existing schools and commercial buildings, came naturally for this HVAC service and building automation contractor. With over 35 years' experience in helping schools and commercial facilities reduce heating energy consumption by 20% to over 50%, the author is convinced that over 75% of all HVAC maintenance requirements are simply keeping all system components clean, dry and lubricated. Further, no one is better capable of providing those services, at the lowest possible cost, than well-trained in-house personnel. However, the author's experience is that most buildings are accomplishing less than 50% of all necessary HVAC services. The purpose of this book is to help in-house personnel, and their managers, better operate their facilities. The building block system suggested to optimize HVAC energy consumption, comfort and indoor air quality, is a simple six-step process: 1. Fix what's broken It's impossible to provide the desired efficiency, comfort and indoor air quality, with broken or damaged equipment. If it's a needed part of the HVAC system, and it's broken, it should be on a priority list for repair or replacement. This book will help you better understand what to look for and why the repairs are important. 2. Clean what's dirty Dirt and debris are your HVAC system's biggest enemies. It causes premature equipment failure, inefficiencies, and indoor air quality related problems. While working in the aerospace industry, the author worked in a manufacturing facility for Titan 3-D missiles. He says you could literally eat off the floor. So, when he joined the HVAC industry, the filth that he found was shocking! How can these systems possibly operate efficiently with all that dirt? Well, they can't. This book spends a great deal of time teaching about getting, and keeping, HVAC systems clean. 3. Change methods of operations made possible because the HVAC system is no longer broken and dirty Building maintenance staff will be more productive, and efficient, when given the knowledge, and the time, to operate a facility free of broken and dirty equipment. Often times, however, they've never had an opportunity to operate a building free of such deficiencies. Methods of how to operate a facility to cover up for such deficiencies, frequently just get passed from generation to generation. This book will help break that chain of events. 4. Revise temperature control sequences Energy efficiency, comfort improvement and indoor air quality are not mutually exclusive terms. It is not necessary to sacrifice one to have the other two. They can peacefully co-exist. Current, antiquated control sequences are often the root cause of preventing success in these areas. It is important to utilize proven, modern control sequences to eliminate simultaneous cooling and heating. From what you learn in this book, you'll be able to recognize improper air-handling unit operation and you'll even be able to share ways to improve them with your local temperature control contractor. 5. Install new technology hardware It is frequently in your best, long-term interest to replace defective equipment, instead of investing in repairs of old, antiquated equipment. In many instances, there are new, unique and often low-cost equipment solutions. This book will share many ideas with you. 6. Implement preventive maintenance routines Preventative maintenance is an area that should be incorporated throughout the six-step process. A good schedule of preventative maintenance is one of the most important factors in managing time and financial resources. Again, this book will help your in-house maintenance personnel become more self-sufficient. It has been intentionally priced low enough for every maintenance person, and supervisor, to have their own copy. It will make a great training manual.

Due to a strong industry need, many academies and technical schools now offer courses on refrigeration and air-conditioning. Marine Refrigeration and Air Conditioning introduces this complicated subject in a detailed, straightforward manner. Mechanical refrigeration is used onboard in many ways, including refrigerated ships stores, air-conditioning, and refrigerated cargo storage areas. Although reciprocating compressors have been the standard for decades, systems using rotary and centrifugal compressors are quickly becoming the norm. Author James A. Harbach addresses both systems and discusses the changes step-by-step. Since the 1990s, environmental concerns have had a major effect on refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Todays students are required to learn how to retrofit existing systems and replace entire units. These tasks are explained fully in this title.
