Tip: The following section can be edited by the webmaster as needed. It does not have to be about Whitepapers. You can edit that to be anything. To add, delete or reposition sections of the accordion, use the concentric arrows button in the editing toolbar at the top. When typing or inserting text into an accordion and there is more than one paragraph, you MUST use "shift + enter" between paragraphs. Be sure that you do not accidentally just use the "enter" key to separate the paragraphs. It will look OK but after you publish the page, the text after the 'enter' may no longer be editable.

5. User's Manual

There is no User's Manual available for the 2010 Edition of Standard 15. A previous user’s manual was developed as a companion document to ASHRAE Standard 15-2001. It does not reflect the addenda and changes incorporated into the newer editions. The User’s Manual clarifies the intent of the Standard and provides an explanation of the rationale behind it. It eases use of the standard by including illustrations and examples of accepted industry practice, as well as explanations of and supporting references for formulas in the Standard. This guide also covers building, system, and refrigerant classifications, restrictions on refrigerant use, installation restrictions, and equipment and system design and construction. The User’s Manual includes information on mechanical and absorption refrigeration systems for commercial, residential, and industrial applications. To purchase your copy of this User's Manual, visit the ASHRAE Bookstore.
