More lists will be added over the coming months.

New material covering use of the vapour compression cycle for heating has been added, with a description of reversible systems and unitary heat pumps, both ground and air source. Reduce, reuse, recycle — meeting the F-Gas targets.

A n ew edition of Guide B Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration has been in preparation for some time and is about to be published, replacing the previous version. Ventilationincluding ductwork B3: It is not practical in this review to list all the possibilities, but attention is drawn to new developments, in particular the use of carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, both directly and in the form of a secondary coolant.

Here’s an example of what they look like: Where natural ventilation can satisfy part of the requirement — termed mixed mode — detailed strategies and provisions for these systems are given.

Air conditioning and refrigeration B4: HVAC strategies for common building types. To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side:. The distinction between air conditioning and comfort cooling is also explained. A secure refrigerant supply.

Replaces edition incorporating corrigendum issued 12 April Heatingincluding hot water systems and a new annex on hydronic systems, also applicable to chilled water systems B2: Getting conditioned air to where it is needed leads into room air movement phenomena, in association with various strategies, such as the use of ceiling or floor-height space to duct or distribute cooled air as required.

This guide will give designers a good insight into possibilities that may be unfamiliar, and is backed up by an extensive list of references.


The physics principles do not change and this material is drawn from the previous Guide B edition. Your reading intentions are also stored in your profile for future reference.

This prompts the main questions to be asked and information about each topic is provided. Air conditioning and refrigeration: Instead, the existence of regulations is signposted and their general scope explained. The level of detail varies; where comprehensive guidance from CIBSE or other sources is available, Guid B is relatively brief and refers to these sources.

Please log in to set a read status Setting a reading intention helps you organise your reading. This requires national building energy regulations to be based on calculations integrating the impact of the ugide envelope and the building services systems, formalising what guixe already recognised as good design practice.

The introduction emphasises the environmental considerations that should be examined at an early stage, including energy efficiency. Detailed information on HVAC system characteristics, design and selection, and on generic issues, such as acoustic and vibration control, is found in the later chapters, which retain the structure of the previous edition: More detail on system types is provided in the refrigeration section where the pros and cons of all these cooling methods are discussed.

Chapter 3 of the new guide fibse together the air conditioning and refrigeration sections.

Information on energy efficiency and sustainability can, of course, be found in Guides F and L. It makes it easy to scan through your lists and keep track of progress.

In addition, the use of voluntary energy efficiency and sustainability indicators has increased. Cooling pipework in sub-floor.

This item appears on List: Have you read this? The air conditioning and refrigeration section features a decision tree to help designers select systems. The overall purpose of the chapter is to provide detailed guidance for those involved in the design and specification of air conditioning systems. Browse the schools, courses and modules, and follow the links. Please log in to set a read status. How do I set a reading intention To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side: Your reading intentions are private to you and will not be shown to other users.


Following an overview that highlights essential environmental considerations and whole-life cost, there is a general introduction to the air conditioning section.

This is the case, for example, for low carbon systems such as heat pumps, solar thermal water heating and combined heat and power. Previously air conditioning was partnered with ventilation. New Guide B has numerous diagrams such as this one on chilled ceilings to aid understanding.

Search using the module title or code. The approach is to look first at strategic considerations. Refrigeration, in the context of this chapter, deals with the cooling and heat rejection equipment necessary to provide the cooling that air conditioning requires.

Regulatory requirements are not described in detail — information varies between jurisdictions and is liable to change more rapidly than the guide can be updated.

CIBSE Guide B3 – Ductwork

Member contributions make up much of the content and we hope to draw on the wider experience of readers to boost its value, especially by adding guidance for applications for which we were lacking good, recent knowledge. Short video tutorials for staff. On-site energy generation such as wind power and photovoltaics are not covered. Novel methods — such as adsorption and magnetic refrigeration — are included, although readers should consult references for up-to-date information about commercial adoption.

Noise and vibration control for building services systems. Much of the previous air conditioning material — updated where necessary — has been moved to the first part of this chapter; there are some topics that are also relevant to Chapter 2 — Ventilation and Ductwork — and gide duplication may be found.
