Very good information HVAC book. Made things more clear in HVAC field.

Overall, this is a well written and informative book. True, a couple of formulas could have been better defined. For the mostpart, however, this book provided a wealth of knowledge in a clear-cut manner.

I've just started this book - it seems OK, but glosses over (skips) a lot of explanations. Also, a lot of formulas just contain numbers without units. Can anyone explain to me how the fuel requirements are determined on Table 4-9 (p. 104)? The whole section on 'The Corrected Heat Loss Formula' (p. 102) seems very poorly explained. I'll hold off on final judgement until I've read the whole thing.
