A great reference!

I bought this as I was designing a house and wanted to understand the heat calculations done by my HVAC designer.
This book is a thorough review of the basics and the technologies used in HVAC systems.
I especially liked chapters 2, 3, and 4 as they delve into the physics of heat transfer and how houses are constructed to minimize (or maximize in the case of air conditioning. The math is straightforward and easy to understand.
The only thing I didn't like about this book (ebook format) was that many of the tables included are rotated 90 degrees. That's fine if you're reading a paper version or on a Kindle, but on an iPad you can't rotate them (you can rotate the iPad but then the image rotates as well).
I'm going to buy Vol 3 to help me figure out how best to heat my house.
