    Rule of Thumb in HVAC Industry



    Can we all start putting up Thumb rules for various norms in HVAC.

    Like here we say 150 Sq ft of floor area is equivalent to 1TR of Ac load ( comfort) with No product load considerations.

    Though we come across such thumb rules, I was trying to consolidate all in one place.

    Re: Rule of Thumb in HVAC Industry

    Hi there,

    There is a book called " HVAC Equations, Data and Rules of Thumb" by Arthur A. Bell Jr. (McGrawHill).

    You find every rule of thumb in HVAC there.

    Cheers
