"For me, the main advantage of Heating and Cooling of Buildings is its readability. It has been written in a manner that helps my students to understand concepts that they might otherwise have found difficult to understand....Chapter 9 is the most comprehensive coverage of heating and cooling design loads - this chapter is what got me interested in the textbook in the first place. The book can also be used by practicing HVAC engineers as a reference."

"Theory and governing equations are presented in an organized manner. The flow of text is quite easy to follow, and covers all topics needed to be taught in a design course."
--Hessam Taherian, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama, USA
""I would highly recommend this book and instructor resources to professors for undergraduate or graduate level courses in HVAC design and building energy science, with the expectation that students would keep this book and use it on a day-to-day basis in their careers."
----Andy Walker, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, Colorado, USA
"The authors have taken great care to update their previous version of this book with the inclusion of several relevant hardware related application chapters and references to current ASHRAE standards."
