Booknews
Revised standard textbook and/or reference on the relationship between mechanical and electrical systems and the buildings they serve. This edition extends the philosophy of the seventh edition (1986), emphasizing the themes of energy conservation and the use of renewable energy sources while keeping readers informed of the major changes in equipment technology wrought by the microprocessor and the computer. A background of college-level mathematics and physics is assumed, and the volume is recognized as an important reference for the national architectural licensing examination. Annotation c.
