Written for the do-it-yourselfer, good enough for the pro. Includes everything you wish to know about your vehicles heating and air conditioning. From simple adjustments, to complete tune-ups and troubleshooting.
This book presents research advances in automotive AC systems using an interdisciplinary approach combining both thermal science, and automotive engineering. It covers a variety of topics, such as: control strategies, optimization algorithms, and diagnosis schemes developed for when automotive air condition systems interact with powertrain dynamics. In contrast to the rapid advances in the fields of building HVAC and automotive separately, an interdisciplinary examination of both areas has long been neglected. The content presented in this book not only reveals opportunities when interaction between on-board HVAC and powertrain is considered, but also provides new findings to achieve performance improvement using model-based methodologies.
Automotive Air-conditioning and Climate Control Systems is a complete text and reference on the theoretical, practical and legislative aspects of vehicle climate control systems for automotive engineering students and service professionals. It provides the reader with a thorough up-to-date knowledge of current A/C systems, refrigerants and the new possible replacement systems like CO2, and includes unrivalled coverage of electronic and electrical control. Filling the gap in the automotive engineering and servicing market for students and those training on the job, this book will help both newcomers and those with more experience of air-conditioning systems maintenance engineering to keep up with the latest developments and legislation. Detailed coverage of European and US vehicle HVAC systems Thorough explanation of current and future systems including CO2 Meets relevant C&G, IMI, and HND vocational and professional qualifications IMI recommended reading material Includes practical cases studies and examples from design and manufacturing companies including Ford, Vauxhall, Toyota, VW, Visteon, Sanden and others, accompanied by over 300 detailed illustrations and photographs
Technical instructor and HVAC expert Jerry Clemons completely covers both air-conditioning as well as heating systems, so you can save money repairing your own vehicle. Covered is a history of HVAC systems, airflow throughout the system, the principles of refrigerant, diagnosis of common faults in older systems, testing procedures, and finally repair and, in the case of air conditioning, recharging your system. Also included is proper evacuation and disposal of any residual refrigerant in the system. Components such as compressors, condensers, evaporators and heater cores, pressure switches and climate control electrics and switches are also covered. Finally, for people with older cars, converting from the no-longer-available R-12 to R134a is detailed. Automotive climate controls are a complex system and are difficult to repair without proper instruction. Whether you are trying to get your old classic back to its original form or are just looking to save on expensive repairs, author Jerry Clemons and this book provide the knowledge you will need to get your car back on the road and cruising in comfort.
This best selling textbook originated in 1967 with it's first edition. Now in it's seventh edition this authoritative text presents a balanced introduction to the industry, helping technicians develop an understanding of the theory, diagnostic practices and service procedures essential to automotive air conditioning. At the same time, the text helps technicians develop skills of sound practice and good judgment in the performance of all air conditioning diagnostic and repair procedures.
TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING, Fifth Edition, is an integrated, two-book set that covers theory and hands-oncontent in separate Classroom and Shop Manuals. This innovative approach allows you to learn fundamental climate control theory, including basic physics related to heat transfer, before applying your knowledge through practical, hands-on shop work. Cross-references in each manual link related material, making it easy to connect book learning to lab and shop activity. Updated to reflect the latest trends, technology, and relevant NATEF standards, the Fifth Edition includes new material on next-generation refrigerants such as HFO-1234yf, as well as a bold, full-color design for enhanced reader appeal. This up-to-date, technically accurate guide is a valuable resource for students and professionals seeking ASE certification, or anyone interested in the principles, components, diagnosis, and repair of modern automotive heating and air conditioning systems.

Virtually every car manufactured today comes from the factory with air conditioning as standard equipment, and of course, cars and light trucks have come with heaters as standard equipment for decades. Similar to automotive wiring and automotive diagnostic systems, there is a certain element of mystery surrounding air conditioning systems about how they operate and how to repair them when something goes wrong. In How to Repair Automotive Air Conditioning & Heating Systems, the mystery of automotive heating and air conditioning is solved! The book covers diagnosis and repair for both heating and air-conditioning systems, tools and equipment required for repair and maintenance, refrigerant types, troubleshooting procedures, and more. Also included is information on converting older, less environmentally friendly R-12 systems into more modern R-134 systems. Until now, the only books covering heating and air conditioning have been academic publications for training facilities and technical schools, and prohibitively expensive factory shop manuals. The first all-colour book written with the enthusiast and do-it-yourself mechanic in mind, How to Repair Automotive Air Conditioning & Heating Systems is an invaluable resource for successfully diagnosing and repairing these complicated systems.
