Carson Dunlop Weldon Launches New Technical Reference Guide

(PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Carson Dunlop Weldon announced today the launch of the new 2012 Technical Reference Guide in both hard copy and e-Book on the Carson Dunlop store. The Technical Reference Guide helps determine the size and age of hundreds of residential and commercial heating and cooling systems. Manufacturers are listed alphabetically allowing property inspectors and HVAC technicians to locate important information with ease.

“We have always been proud of this text that helps determine the equipment size and age. This is critical information in making repair/replace decisions and for budgeting and planning,” commented Richard Weldon, President of Carson Dunlop Weldon. “The new e-Book format makes accessing this information simple and quick – it's available instantly and can be accessed on any computer, smart phone or tablet.”

The new well-indexed 2012 paperback version provides the most current information on the age and capacity of furnaces, boilers, air conditioners and water heaters. The new e-Book includes a built-in search feature that allows people to search manufacturers, make and model information easier and faster than ever before. Updated contact information and links to manufacturers are included for convenient access to more information.

Information is also included on sizing heating and cooling equipment, typical life expectancies of equipment, cooling load figures for commercial equipment and outdoor air requirements for ventilation. Conversion factors and formulas for thermal resistance, heating, water and electrical units are also included.
