The sixth edition of the Technical Handbook sees a back-to-basics return to focusing on the engineering fundamentals of the science of HVAC&R. Most of the charts, graphs, equations, calculators, and application tables and guidelines have been incorporated into the core Handbook sections for ease of reference, while the larger data tables and more descriptive engineering and management materials are all grouped in a series of virtual appendices.

The virtual appendices include updated information on psychrometrics; controls; metering and monitoring HVAC; improving a building’s performance rating; improving refrigeration energy efficiency; and controlling corrosion.

As part of our membership benefits, AIRAH members receive exclusive digital access to the complete AIRAH Technical Handbook, including appendices A–K. Please note that the sixth edition of the AIRAH Technical Handbook will be available to members from April 6, 2021.
