Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Research

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning in buildings represent substantial energy demands, and insufficient ventilation may result in poor indoor air quality and health problems. Designing for optimum ventilation performance is a vital part of building design. Use this list of selected titles to begin your research; use the search terms to find more books and articles at UC Berkeley and beyond. For general information, please see Building Science Resources, a guide to the literature of building systems, performance measurement, technology, materials, etc.
