    Rules of Thumb and Equations with UK/European units



    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a european/uk unit book that contains the above, specifically for HVAC. Or even a website?

    HVAC Equations, Data and Rules of Thumb by Arthur Bell looks very good but the units are American.

    I've searched around with not much luck. There are a few books on Amazon but with bad reviews and nowhere near as intensive as the Arthurs Bells book.

    The CIBSE guide also gives Rule of Thumb figures, although it is rather expensive...in my opinion.

    NRS had a guide in the back of their AC brouchure.
    Can't see it on the website so you might need to get a hard copy from the trade counter - look at the back after the troubleshooting section.

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Are you looking for a European SI units book (kW for instance), or rather a UK units book (Btu for instance) ?

    Hi chillerman,

    SI units in the UK, now that amazes me hehe. All for the better I say, never got comfy with Btu and lb, nor TR for that matter, but then again, i'm not english.

    For the HVAC I would say Recknagel ... http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASI...218374-6987245. It is however in German ...
