ASHRAE GreenGuide: The Design, Construciton, and Operation of Sustainable Buildings
2018 5th Edition
6 x 9
528 pages

This is an excellent reference for anyone in the HVAC industry interested in reducing negative effects on the environment from their installations. The book uses two key terms: green and sustainability. Green buildings are designed to have a minimum effect on the environment. Sustainability is defined as, "Providing for the needs of the present without detracting from the ability to fulfill the needs of the future."

          The book contains 45 "GreenTips"—most of them for the HVAC systems. Each tip describes a procedure to make a building more environmentally friendly. They include:

  • A description of the process
  • Pros and cons
  • Elements of cost
  • References for more information

Typical GreenTips are:

  • ir-to-air energy recovery
  • Night precooling
  • Mixed air temperature reset
  • Ground source heat pumps
  • Solar energy
