The first choice of those who work on refrigeration systems, now completely revised. Refrigeration service and repair is a separate skill set from air conditioning work. Appreciating a how-to book focused exclusively on refrigeration, tradespersons and repair workers have made earlier editions of this guide become top sellers. This revision, the first in thirteen years, covers the many improvements and changes in both home and commercial refrigeration systems, such as self-defrosting, automatic icemakers, brine systems, thermoelectric cooling, and more.
