any good books on HVAC for the DIYer?
We are going to install a Central Air System in our 880 sf house that we built ourselves. I am looking for books that any other DIYers have found useful in relation to specifications such as vent size and location; duct size; etc. We are purchasing a 1.5 ton unit which I've read should be the most efficient for our sq footage. We live in central Texas so air conditioning is more of a priority (more often) than heating. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Look in your public library in diy section. HVAC fundamentals Volume 1 and Volume 2, James .e Brumbaugh author. Better late than never?
Look on google under duct sizing , there are some good pages that explain friction loss as well as duct size as far as proper cfm for 1.5 ton AC.
you need minumum 600 cfm . base your duct on this
just off the top of my head i would say start off with 8x14 and taper as you go , make your system a reducing duct system , this way you can save lots on material costs
