CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar recently announced the release of HVACR 301.

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar, part of Cengage Learning and a provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, recently announced the release of HVACR 301, the third book in a four-part series of Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration training textbooks.

The book was written by John Hohman in partnership with the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the PHCC (Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors) Educational Foundation, and the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES). It is the only series supported by these three industry organizations, making it an invaluable resource for technicians, apprentices and students in the HVACR field.

Building on beginning concepts and the strong theoretical knowledge established with HVACR 101 and HVACR 201, this next installment guides readers through increasingly advanced concepts in the field. Content ranges from the troubleshooting of systems and components to concepts of fluid-handling systems, cooling towers, evaporative condensers, commercial air conditioning and refrigeration systems, and indoor air quality. Throughout the text, industry-specific language, field examples and real-world scenarios are used to provide context that is relevant and applicable to the trade. In addition, detailed pictures, graphs and tables clarify and illustrate important HVACR systems and processes, aiding professionals and students in understanding complex procedures. Accompanying the book are useful instructor supplements.

“HVACR 301 and the other books in the series were written based on curriculum developed by a subject matter expert committee sponsored by the ACCA, the PHCC Educational Foundation and the RSES, guaranteeing the content meets important industry training standards,” said Ed Francis, acquisitions editor, Delmar. “In addition, the building block approach to HVACR concepts employed by the series ensures readers comprehend simpler concepts before moving on to more complex information, making the series an important resource for users across a broad spectrum – from students to professionals.”

The titles in the HVACR series cover basic math, equipment, installation, troubleshooting, service and repair, systems design and more.
