HVAC Equations, Data, and Rules of Thumb
2nd Edition, 2008
By Arthur A. Bell, Jr.
790 Pages, softcover

This is a massive work. It contains more information about all phases of HVAC work than any book I have seen. Look at the Table of Contents to see all that it covers. The book's purpose is to provide design and reference data on all phases of HVAC work. It is a useful reference for HVAC engineers, mechanical contractors, and technicians. I think that Commissioning, TAB, IAQ, and Energy Management Technicians will find it a very useful reference.

This is strictly a reference book. It doesn't explain how to use the information and equations that are in the book.


The weakness of the book is that it has no index. A detailed Table of Contents allows you find information—each numbered section has a list of subtopics. But you have to use the book for a while before you can find what you need easily. Also, those of you in the Western and Southern States will probably find it contains more material on steam (over 200 pages) than you care to have.
