    • Cutaway views of devices allow readers to see inside the system as they explore the operation and function of each of its components in detail.
    • Three chapters aid readers in developing the ability to read and interpret electrical schematic and ladder diagrams for air source, water source, and geothermal heat pump systems, a skill required of all successful technicians.
    • Objectives and a brief introduction, plus an overview of the concepts to be presented in each chapter, help readers to zero in on must-know information.
    • Chapter-end summaries, plus hundreds of chapter-end review questions, underscore key points while providing an effective means for readers to gauge their understanding.
    • An extensive glossary helps readers master the use of key technical and industry terms.
    • Each system component is treated separately, allowing readers to concentrate fully on a single component before attempting to assemble all of the pieces of the heat pump puzzle.
    • More than 50 "For Discussion" topics excite and challenge readers while providing instructors with opportunities to encourage thought-provoking in-class debate.
    • New chapters added pertaining to new technology used in the field.
    • New "green" sidebars throughout the book provide tips on energy efficiency and address the latest Green Building codes.
    • New topics include inverter-controlled compressors, variable refrigerant flow, ductless split systems, ductless split heat pump systems with heat recovery, ductless split system installation, and pressure enthalpy.
    • A new full color, reader-friendly design with mostly new art work makes technical topics easier to understand.
    • Coverage of geothermal heat pump systems is greatly expanded.
    • Discussions on COP, EER, SEER, and HSPF have been expanded and a greater emphasis is placed on system efficiency.
