The second edition of Air-Conditioning Systems Design Manual is available from ASHRAE. The updated manual, which was first published in 1993, includes new materials concerning the design process, indoor air quality and green design. The manual aims to bridge the gap between engineering theory and practical application.

Changes to the manual include the addition of information regarding:

• Various stages of the design process—conceptual design, schematic design and design development—and the role of HVAC/R systems design in each stage

• The commissioning process

• Indoor air quality

• Green design for HVAC systems in high-performance buildings.

The cost of Air-Conditioning System Design Manual, Second Edition, is $89.95, or $71.95 for ASHRAE members.
