1.0 out of 5 stars Air Conditioning and Refrigeration May 10 2006
By Dennis N. Clegg - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book smacks of being done by researchers, not experts in the field. It is very outdated. It does not feature modern refrigerants, tools, or service techniques. While some of the information will always be applicable to the field, the information is researched, borrowed...not from the authors' experience in the field. My father was teaching me in the late 1960's. Had he given me this book I would have thought it useful but a bit old fashioned. You can tell the authors do not practice in the field or the shop or they would have realized their information was from the refrigeration dinasaur age!

5.0 out of 5 stars HVACR book review Jan. 23 2012

This is a very good and comprehensive book, which deals with almost all aspects of HVAC&R systems. Very recommended. It will be very helpful to technicians and engineers of all levels.
2.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly disappointed. waste of money. Aug. 24 2013

wow. i'm having a really difficult time finding anything positive to say about this book. i am a professional hvac/r technician who was looking for a technical book to answer some long-standing refrigeration questions i have been unable to answer through experience or research. i am very strong electrically, but i still struggle from time to time when diagnosing more difficult mechanical problems. i think this book contains valuable information for somebody who knows somewhere in the neighborhood of nothing about hvac/r systems, it reads like a disorganized dictionary, merely defining parts and processes and giving almost no technical operating information that is so useful in troubleshooting. the print looks like it came off a typewriter and was then photocopied into the book. the text references figures that are pages away, making for a constant page flipping. i am beginning to understand why the kids coming out of trade school are borderline worthless, and subsequently have such a hard time finding employment, if this is the material they are learning from. if you really want to break into this industry, find a shop that will pay you to sweep the floor or pick up trash or carry stuff for the other guys, join your local journeyman's apprenticeship program, and attach yourself like rusty fan blade hub to a motor shaft to the smartest tech or tinner or pipe fitter your shop employs and don't waste your time in trade school. sorry about the rant. as for myself, i continue on the quest for better quality learning material.
3.0 out of 5 stars Needs updating Aug. 4 2013

Good information, but needs updating for latest refrigerants. Basic testing and troubleshooting are OK.. If you want info on basic home AC, this is overkill.
