Instead, the existence of regulations is signposted and their general scope explained. The approach is to look first at strategic considerations.

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: Noise and vibration control for building servi 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.

Further information for staff.

Much of the previous air conditioning material — updated where necessary — has been moved to the ciibse part of this chapter; there are some topics that are also relevant to Chapter 2 — Ventilation and Ductwork — and some duplication may be found. Search using the module title or code. Cooling pipework in sub-floor. Variable refrigerant flow VRF systems, whose flexibility has stimulated growing demand, are given more coverage.

This is the case, for example, for low carbon systems such as fuide pumps, solar thermal water heating and combined heat and power. N3 conditioning and refrigeration B4: To find and access your reading lists: 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.


The level of detail varies; where comprehensive guidance from CIBSE or other sources is available, Guide B is relatively brief and refers to these sources. The air conditioning and refrigeration section features guidde decision tree to help designers select systems.

Ventilationincluding ductwork B3: Click on items in the list to check their availability gguide the Library or to view the full text online. Following an overview that highlights essential environmental considerations and whole-life cost, there is a general introduction to the air conditioning section.

The introduction emphasises the environmental considerations ccibse should be examined at an early stage, including energy efficiency. This item appears on List: Setting a reading intention helps you organise your reading.

Here’s an example of what they look like: An cise — where local conditions permit — is a ground air cooling system that takes outside air through a ground heat exchange process to remove heat before treatment. New Guide B has numerous diagrams such as this one on chilled ceilings to aid understanding. 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: Further information for staff Cbse video tutorials for staff.

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration – CIBSE Guide B3 – – Knovel

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. Previously air conditioning was partnered with ventilation.


It has been comprehensively revised to take account of developments in the intervening years, in particular to incorporate guidance on health and safety issues, new regulations, and updated refrigerant information.

More detail on system types is provided in the refrigeration section where the pros and cons of all these cooling cibze are discussed.

CIBSE Guide B3: Air Conditioning and Refrigeration : Cibse :

No longer is it sufficient to satisfy the cooling demand; it must be done in an energy efficient way, and the means of achieving this are to be found here. Localised systems generally use the vuide itself as the distribution agent and these are termed direct expansion systems.

With the declining importance of printed literature, the new version has reverted to gujde separate chapters available in both printed and downloadable versions, with one exception — a new, online only, chapter B0 Applications and Activities: What are reading intentions? Noise and h3 control for building services systems. This requires national building energy regulations to be based on calculations integrating the impact of the building envelope and the building services systems, formalising what is already recognised as good design practice.
