About the book: For undergraduate automotive courses in Automotive Climate Control/Heating and Air Conditioning. This book is part of the Pearson Automotive Professional Technician Series.

Automotive Heating and Air Conditioning, 8th Edition provides a complete, state-of-the-art source on automotive heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, as well as the practical skills that students must master to be successful in the industry. The text focuses on the generic theory that underlies the operation, diagnosis, and repair of the units and subassemblies found in the many makes and types of vehicles students will likely encounter in their careers. Formatted to appeal to today's technical trade students, Halderman uses helpful tips and visuals to bring concepts to life and guide students through the procedures they'll use on the job.

To keep your course current, all of the content is correlated to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas, and includes expanded content on R-1234yf refrigerant, a new chapter on engine coolants, a new chapter on HVAC system inspection procedures, new content on sealant filters, over 50 new full-colour line drawings and photos, new case studies in selected chapters, and more. All terms in the new edition adhere to the SAEJ1930 standard.
