  • Fuel Burning Equipment (Coal Stokers, Hand Fired Coal Burners, Oil Burners, Gas Burners, Dual Fuel Burners)
  • Steam Heating Systems (Boilers, Condensate Pumps, Regulators, Gauges, Traps, Dampers, Radiators, Valves, etc)
  • Hot Water Heating Systems (Gravity, Forced Circulation Systems, Hot Water Fan-Coil Units, Heat Exchangers)
  • Warm Air Systems (Coal Fired Warm Air Furnaces, Oil-Fired Warm Air Furnaces, Gas-Fire Warm Air Furnaces, etc)
  • Automatic Controls (Types of Controls, Operation and Maintenance)
  • Troubleshooting

Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Dehumidifying Systems (234 page course book)

  • Air Distribution (Duct Design and Sizing, Access Doors, Flexible Ducts, Branches, Elbows, Types of fans, etc)
  • Piping Systems (Piping Design Factors, System Pressure Loss, Piping Layouts, Expansions, Water Systems)
  • Controls and Instrumentation (Choice of Controls, Operations of HVAC Systems, Filtration System, Smoke Detectors, Calibration, etc)
  • Equipment Location (General Considerations, Specific Considerations, Noise, Access, etc)
  • Fundamental Drawing Details (Diagrams and Schematics, Equipment Schedules, Riser Diagrams, Duct Pressure Systems)
  • Rules of Thumb Guidance (AC Capacity, Moisture Loads, Chilled Water Circulation, etc)
  • Fire Protection and Smoke Control (System Design, Control System)


This publication provides practical information on the operation and maintenance of ventilating systems with special emphasis on economy consistent with safety. It is primarily directed to the personnel in the field who actually supervise and perform the operations and the maintenance work. Although the general subject of ventilating systems is highly technical, this publication has been written in nontechnical language, brief and direct, so that the reader will have the basic information required for the intelligent handling of field situations.

  • General
  • Mechanical Ventilation Systems
  • Natural or Gravity Ventilation Systems
  • Industrial Ventilation Systems
  • Mechanical Ventilation Cooling Systems
  • Maintenance Instructions


This handbook provides guidance and criteria for the design of buildings to be totally or partially cooled by natural ventilation. It describes several natural criteria; design criteria for natural ventilation and for zoned or seasonal occupant and maintenance manuals, and guidelines for wind tunnel testing. Appendices include forms and overlays for the designer's use and describe the fundamental principles of comfort related to airflow, a methodology for climate analysis, prediction, and evaluation.

  • Introduction
  • Cooling by Natural Ventilation
  • Design Criteria
  • Building Design Features and Practices
  • Occupant and Maintenance Manuals
