By Clifford Goodrich on May 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
I should give it 5 stars for the price. It's a book full of troubleshooting detail, but you have to learn the material to find it. For an example, he mentions to be careful of sulfuric acid contamination in the refrigeration oil under the title of "Compressor Testing". If you flip pages and see only the broad titles you'll miss the good stuff. Most HVAC guys come in on a hot day and just replace the compressor units because the store operator is frantic (after cleaning coils and charging the unit). This "oldie but goodie" book will teach you how to do a continuity test on a hermetically sealed 3 phase motor to see if it's still good. Is it a motor winding insulation leak, winding break, or locked rotor? Explains what can lock up a rotor. Perfect starter book for the maintenance guy who wants to make some side money fixing tossed equipment like Store or Hotel ice machines.

This book is an excellent primer for someone that has no prior knowledge of A/C systems. It is very dated and lacks information on the newer systems and refrigerants.

This book covers the topic in a such a way that both beginners and people with more experience can benefit. Written and explained in such a way that the novice will understand but detailed enough that someone with experience can get a better understanding of things they might not have encountered in their work. It covers electricity very well so that one will go away with a better understanding of it. All in all a very good book on the topic

This is a great book to have. The format is perfect and it's written so, a chicken could understand it.However , there's one little major problem in my opinion. FOR ME, THE TEXT IS TOO SMALL. Please take into consideration, people with impaired vision. If it's possibe, have an option on your webpage for people with impaired vision to be able to select books wih larger text.I love to read and would probably purchase books more frequent if I had an option to purchase books with larger print.

A good book to have to review the things I already knew.
But I could look up things I wasn't sure I remembered correctly.
Written in an easy format, as English is not my first language, so I understood it all.
Liked the way things were explained.

I would not download it on a phone if you cannot see small writing. I should of got the book so I could get better use out of it. It is really confusing and not organised on the phone for me mThe book has given me one good tip so far but it will take me forever to find it again if and when I need it

I found the text to be very useful, although it was not the complete and through guide that I was hoping for. That would probably be in the factory shop manual for the central airconditioner that I am attempting to troubleshoot, and those are hard to come by.
