Air conditioning and refrigeration B4: Much of the previous air conditioning material — updated where necessary — has been moved to the first part of this chapter; there are some topics that are also relevant to Chapter 2 — Ventilation and Ductwork — and some duplication may be found.
Detailed information on HVAC system characteristics, design 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: Further information for staff Short video tutorials for staff.
It is not practical in this review to list all the possibilities, but attention is drawn to new developments, in particular the use of carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, both directly and in the form of a secondary coolant. 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.
Getting conditioned air to where it is 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. Replaces edition incorporating corrigendum issued 12 April A secure refrigerant supply.
The distinction between air conditioning and comfort cooling is also explained. The physics principles do not change and this material is drawn from the previous Guide B edition.
Here’s an example of what they look like: Noise and vibration control for building servi Finally, the air conditioning equipment section deals with specific items associated with processing air such as: 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.
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. Have you read this?

More lists will be added over the coming months. Welcome to London South Bank University’s online reading list system. HVAC strategies for common building types. Localised systems generally use the refrigerant itself as the distribution agent and these are termed direct expansion systems.
It makes it easy to scan through your lists and keep track of progress. How do I set a reading intention To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side: Following an overview that highlights essential environmental considerations and whole-life cost, there is a general introduction to ghide air conditioning section.
You can filter on reading intentions from the listas well as view them within your profile.
The introduction emphasises the environmental considerations that should be examined at an early stage, including energy efficiency. For more than 75 years, it has evolved in content and form, but always with the objective of providing an overview of guidance to good practice in the selection and design of HVAC systems. Your reading intentions are also stored in your profile for future reference.
Short video tutorials for staff. Setting up reading intentions help you organise your course reading. Chapter 3 of the new guide brings together the air conditioning and refrigeration sections. 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. The overall purpose of the chapter is to provide detailed guidance for those involved in the design and specification of air conditioning systems.
Search using the module title or code. Your reading intentions are private to you and will not be shown to other users.
Noise and vibration control for building services systems. 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.
Reduce, reuse, recycle — meeting the F-Gas targets. Browse the schools, courses and modules, and follow the links. This item appears on List: The air conditioning and refrigeration section features a decision tree to help designers select systems.
No longer is it sufficient to satisfy the cooling demand; it must be done in an energy efficient way, and the means of achieving this are to be found here. In addition, the use of voluntary energy cibsse and sustainability indicators has increased. Click on items in the list to check their availability in the Library or to view the full text online. 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 buide — and maybe humidity — controlled centrally and ducted to local areas.

The approach is to look first at strategic considerations. Setting a reading intention helps you organise your reading. On-site energy generation such as wind power and photovoltaics are not covered. This prompts the main questions to be asked and information about each topic is provided.
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. Please log in to set a read status.
To find and access your reading lists: With the declining importance of printed literature, the new version has reverted to having separate chapters available in both printed and downloadable versions, with one exception — a new, online only, chapter B0 Applications and Activities: Heatingincluding hot water systems and a new annex on hydronic systems, also applicable to chilled water systems B2: Instead, the existence of regulations is signposted and their general scope explained.
This guide will give designers a good insight into possibilities that may be unfamiliar, and is backed up by an extensive list of references. Further information for staff.
