This book is layed out well and completely covers the basics of HVAC. Any person who has used NAVEDTRA Manuals will find this to be both similar in lay-out and comprehensity of subject. It is inexpensive for the depth of knowledge contained. For the price, I don't worry that it may get wear and tear as I carry it around in my service van. You may be interested in Modern Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (Althouse, Turnquist, and Bracciano/ 18th Edition) the ultimate inclusive textbook as used in trade schools and colleges. It is relatively expensive but worth the investment for a career person. I have both.

This book is a solid keeper, I am on my third time reading thru and I am getting more of the information than the first two reads. The in formation here will definitely put you on the drivers seat. And yes "adiabatic cooling" would be worth the cost of the book, if I didn't know it. From the number of Techs, I've seen, that don't work to know and use this information, the harsher their jobs are.
I plan to commit this book to memory before I finish, just so I can enjoy working in HVAC field.

As someone above pointed out, this is a very basic book. The theory in it is ridiculously oversimplified and the description of many working and diagnostic procedures lacks detail. On the other hand, it is not very expensive compare to other books on the subject.

I ordered this book just after our 11 years old refrigerator ran into cooling problems, and then just to have a book, at a reasonable price, with drawings and pictures which I could use to show to my wife and other persons, when explaining the cooling system, and point for possibly failures. Here in Chiang Mai I couldn’t find alternative books written in English.

But when receiving the book, I found that it is missing much for being up to date, as for example pictures of the new measuring tools and electrical part inside the refrigerators. And besides, as I would like it, pictures from outside and inside of a new refrigerator. Because in the book we nearly only are seeing drawings of the big flat evaporators, or pictures with them hanging on the wall for education training, and so I only connect them to the refrigerators from before 15 years ago. Where they were positioned out on the backside of the refrigerators, opposite to now a days where we don’t see them before we search inside the refrigerator.

So after having received the book I again started searching in Amazon after a more up to date book, and again went looking at John Tomczyk: “Basic Refrigeration & Charging Procedures”, from 2003, but in the Customers Reviews I found that, this book only contain copies of the book from 1995. So instead I took the chance and ordered the book by Ananthanarayanan, P. N.: “Basic Refrigeration and Air Conditioning”, which we can’t look into it. But besides because I did not, during the engineering education in thermodynamics, 30 years ago, owe a book especially about refrigerators.

But concerning the book which I here write about I first nearly not would give the character 3, for not being up to date and besides missing different thing.

Without a single acknowledgement of TECH Method Tomczyk boldly goes where others have gone before.

What should you write about a book basically plagiarizing other's works? The sections on superheat, subcooling, are obviously lifted from TECH Method. Subcooling and superheat at the compressor was never discussed in this industry until Lloyd wrote TECH Method and the people who don't give him credit are reprehensible.
The other parts of the book aren't noteworthy as the information is available elsewhere. The five part Copeland manuals come to mind flipping through this book.

Not a troubleshooting book as much as an instruction book. Troubleshooting is is all ways better in TECH Method where it's broken down by system. And gives specifics as to settings for each system.

While this is better than no book. I suggest something other than this book.

TECH Method:

I taught at a technical institute for 11 years. This is a good book. Easy to understand, good sequence, and exercises.
