Heating Systems Troubleshooting and Repair - Maintenance Tips and Forensic Observation (Hardcover): John Certuse Heating Systems Troubleshooting and Repair - Maintenance Tips and Forensic Observation (Hardcover)
John Certuse
R1,957 Discovery Miles 19 570 Out of stock

Most of the work technicians routinely perform is in maintaining existing equipment as opposed to installing new systems. The procedures and visual observation conditions presented in this title will enable technicians to perform their tasks more effectively. By knowing how the equipment is designed, built, and how the materials behave over time, they will be better able to execute a maintenance program extending equipment life and reducing unplanned malfunctions. This book's emphasis is on implementing these actions correctly and in a timely basis so that equipment experiences an increase in life expectancy reliability, more efficient energy performance, and a reduction in the possibility of future failures and liability. While the main focus of this work is on equipment installed in residential homes, the procedures detailed certainly apply to larger commercial heating equipment as well. FEATURES: Addresses troubleshooting and repair actions on residential heating equipment and controls. Detailed procedures cover visual observations and inspection of impending equipment failure as well as necessary Preventive maintenance actions. Includes icons throughout with maintenance tips, forensic observations. Visual equipment inspection observations as well as step-by-step procedures for preventive maintenance will be presented along with numerous photographs of failed equipment detailing the consequences of inadequate preventive maintenance. An affiliated website will contain supporting video footage of demonstrations of failed equipment and proper/improper maintenance procedures. Color photographs of illustrations in the book will also be available on the website.

R2,948 Discovery Miles 29 480 Out of stock

While most industrial controls have benefitted from advances in personal computer control and sensor technology, building controls have lagged behind. Only now are some of the techniques used in industrial automation showing up in HVAC systems. As energy costs continue to grow in relation to overall operating costs, the need for more refined HVAC control becomes more crucial. HVAC strategies such as optimizing start-up time and supply air temperature, and minimizing fan energy and reheating are not only possible, but are becoming necessary. This book examines the relationship between industrial automation techniques and evolving HVAC systems, as well as how emerging technologies can now be applied to HVAC systems. The latest HVAC control technologies and their application are fully examined, with specific coverage of HVAC optimization strategies, boiler and pump control, heat pump and chiller optimization, environmental controls, wireless control, computer control and building automation. The text is abundantly illustrated with charts and illustrations.

R2,935 R2,554 Discovery Miles 25 540 Save R381 (13%) Out of stock

This is a definitive guide to the rebound effect in home heating - the increase in energy service use after a technological intervention aimed at reducing consumption. It sets out what the effect is, how it plays out in the home heating sector, what this implies for energy saving initiatives in this sector, and how it relates to rebound effects in other sectors. The book outlines how the concept of the rebound effect has been developed and the scope of research on it, both generally and particularly in the home heating sector. Within the context of energy and CO2 emissions policy, it summarises the empirical evidence, exploring its causes and the attempts that are being made to mitigate it. Various definitions of the rebound effect are considered, in particular the idea of the effect as an energy-efficiency `elasticity'. The book shows how this definition can be rigorously applied to thermal retrofits, and to national consumption data, to give logically consistent rebound effect results that can be coherently compared with those of other sectors, and allow policy makers to have more confidence in the predictions about potential energy savings.

This guide to the fundamentals of stage lighting includes a series of projects to allow experimentation, discussion and analysis. The necessary equipment is described in relation to its purpose, along with checklists and hints for practical use. The practical handling of light, with observation of the relationship of cause to effect, is central to the study of stage lighting. Rehearsal pressures usually restrict the time available for experimenting with lighting for a performance, but laboratory-style projects can be used to enable specific lighting problems to be solved. The core of this book is a series of 'discovery' projects using minimal resources, to explore the use of light in the theatre, with particular emphasis on the interaction of conflicting visual aims. The projects cover all the major scenarios likely to be encountered by lighting students and have been tried and tested by the author, who has taught lighting students all over the world for over 30 years. The book has been updated to include more on safety and the latest technology including: - fixed instruments using the new lower wattage high efficiency lamps in combination with dichronic reflectors - an increase in the availability, reliability, range and usage of 'moving light' technology based on remotely controlled instruments. New lighting projects have also been added. If you are studying the art and craft of stage lighting this book is an excellent working manual that will provide you with the technical knowledge and skill to cope with a range of lighting situations.

A series of studies of homes in England show that around 15% - or some 3 million homes - suffer problems with damp and mould, largely because of poor ventilation. The impact on public health and quality of life is substantial. The Handbook of Domestic Ventilation is a comprehensive study of the basic science, technology and practical application of effective and energy efficient ventilation strategies for dwellings. Unlike other books, the Handbook concentrates on a domestic context rather than looking solely at commercial applications, giving a much needed insight into the requirements of ventilation for the home. Basing his conclusions on both theoretical study and practical experience, Rodger Edwards demonstrates the clear link between poor ventilation and poor health, and tells the reader how to use good quality ventilation as a way of enhancing quality of life and as a health improvement tool.

Energy efficiency in buildings requires, among other things, that ventilation be appropriately dimensioned: too much ventilation wastes energy, and insufficient ventilation leads to poor indoor air quality and low comfort. Studies have shown that ventilation systems seldom function according to their commissioned design. They have also shown that airflow measurement results are essential in improving a ventilation system. This key handbook explains why ventilation in buildings should be measured and describes how to measure it, giving applied examples for each measurement method. The book will help building physicists and ventilation engineers to properly commission ventilation systems and appropriately diagnose ventilation problems throughout the life of a building. Drawing on over 20 years of experience and the results of recent international research projects, this is the definitive guide to diagnosing airflow patterns within buildings.
