The ASHRAE Handbook is now available online to allow for quick and easy access to a vast amount of HVAC&R information. Unlike the ASHRAE HandbookCD+ 2006-2009, an ASHRAE Handbook Online subscription provides immediate access to Handbook content; requires no software installation; eliminates dependency on one computer by allowing for quick access from any computer with an Internet connection; and costs less than the price of purchasing each volume separately, offering a $331 savings for non-members.

"The advantages of the ASHRAE Handbook Online are numerous," Dennis O'Neal, 2009-10 chair of the ASHRAE Handbook Committee, said. "For one, the text is fully searchable and includes live links to figures, tables, footnotes, equations, and other Web references. Going online also allows for fast navigation among all four current Handbook volumes, with live cross-reference links."

The hardback version of the ASHRAE Handbook is published in a series of four volumes, one of which is revised each year, ensuring that no volume is older than four years. The ASHRAE Handbook Online, however, allows access to all of the four most recent volumes at once.
