Building services is not a theoretical academic subject. It is a living, developing field of endeavour which touches everyone’s lives. You are probably reading this in a heated (or air conditioned?) room right now! This book reflects the closeness between the academic study of building services with its practical application in its format. A traditional textbook is presented on the right hand pages and additional details including information on commercially available products and their suppliers is given on the left. By linking the theoretical descriptions with systems which can be seen around us in everyday life learning will be enhanced.
This publication represents a new way of supplying textbooks to students studying courses which have strong industrial links. It has been issued free of charge. All costs have been paid by members of the building services industry who, as professionals, are pleased to contribute to the education of the next generation of Architects and Building Services Engineers.
· To give students access to a basic text at no cost to themselves.
· To introduce students to the basic concepts and components of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
· To improve uptake and understanding of the subject by presenting photographs of commercially available equipment alongside the textbook description.
· To enhance the link between education and practice.
· To make students aware of the existence of companies and the range of products and services they offer at an early stage in their careers.
