To find and access your reading lists: New material covering use of the vapour compression cycle for heating has been added, with a description of reversible systems and unitary heat pumps, both ground and air source. How do I set a reading intention To set a reading giide, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left guiide side: Reduce, reuse, recycle — meeting the F-Gas targets. Setting up reading intentions help you organise your course reading.
The approach is to look first at strategic considerations. It has been comprehensively revised to take account of developments in the intervening years, in particular to incorporate guidance on health and safety issues, new regulations, and updated refrigerant information.

The overall purpose of the chapter is to provide detailed guidance for those involved in the design and specification of air conditioning systems. A strategy to be adopted for cooling and dehumidifying the local air supply is the next major step for the designer. Here’s an example of what they look like: An alternative — where local conditions permit — is a ground air cooling system that takes outside air through a ground heat exchange process to remove heat before treatment.
Previously air conditioning was partnered with ventilation.
You can filter on reading intentions from the listas well as view them within guixe profile. This prompts the main questions to be asked and information about each topic is provided.
Potential candidates include a centralised scheme, comprising a water-based or hydronic system, where water is chilled in a central plant for distribution around the building or an air-based scheme, where the air to be supplied is cibs — and maybe humidity — controlled centrally and ducted to local areas.
Detailed information on HVAC system characteristics, buide and selection, and on generic issues, such as acoustic and vibration control, is found in the later chapters, which retain the structure of the previous edition: The physics principles do not change and this material is drawn from the previous Guide B cobse. To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side:. Member contributions make up much of the content and we hope to draw on the wider experience of readers to boost its value, especially by adding guidance for applications for which we were lacking good, recent knowledge.
More lists will be added over the coming guode. More detail on system types is provided in the refrigeration section where the pros and cons of all these cooling methods are discussed. Air conditioning and refrigeration B4: These changes have influenced content, but the emphasis remains on system selection and design.
Search using the module title or code. The distinction between air conditioning and comfort cooling is also explained. Cooling pipework b33 sub-floor.
With any project, there will be numerous alternatives at every stage, and the approach takes the reader through the options, describing them and highlighting advantages and disadvantages. Noise and vibration control for building servi What are reading intentions? The air conditioning and refrigeration section features a decision tree to help designers select systems.
Localised systems generally use the refrigerant itself as the distribution agent and these are termed direct expansion systems. Information on energy efficiency and sustainability can, of course, be found in Guides F and L.
With the declining importance of printed gudie, the new version has reverted to having separate chapters cibae in both printed and downloadable versions, with one exception — a new, online only, chapter B0 Applications and Activities: The level of detail varies; where comprehensive guidance from CIBSE or other sources is available, Guide B is relatively brief and refers to these sources. On-site energy generation such as wind power and photovoltaics are not covered.

Instead, the existence of regulations is signposted and their general scope explained. Novel methods — such giude adsorption and magnetic refrigeration — are included, although readers should consult references for up-to-date information about commercial adoption.
Your reading intentions are private to you and will not be shown to other users. Getting conditioned air to where it v3 needed leads into room air movement phenomena, in association with various strategies, such as the use of ceiling or floor-height space to duct or distribute cooled air as required. Setting a reading intention helps you organise your reading. Variable refrigerant flow VRF systems, whose flexibility has stimulated growing demand, are given more coverage.
New Guide B has numerous diagrams such as this one on chilled ceilings to aid understanding.

Ventilationincluding ductwork B3: This requires national building energy regulations to be based on calculations integrating the impact of the building envelope and the building services systems, formalising what is already recognised as good design practice. Replaces edition incorporating corrigendum issued 12 April It makes it easy to scan through your lists and keep track of progress.
A n ew edition of Guide B Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration has been in preparation for some time and is about to be published, replacing the previous version. This is the case, for example, for low carbon systems such as heat pumps, solar thermal water heating and combined heat and power. Content has been added where there is new information and experience, wording has been clarified where necessary, and sections that are now less relevant have been judiciously pruned.
