1. “Refrigeration and Air Conditioning” by Arora C P

“Refrigeration and Air Conditioning” Book Review: This book presents a basic as well as applied thermodynamic treatment of the subject in a very comprehensive manner. The presentation of the subject follows the classical line of separately treating the topics in refrigeration and air conditioning, the two being linked via the medium of the refrigerant evaporator. Chapters 1 to 13 are devoted to refrigeration and Chapters 14 to 22 to air conditioning. Chapters 23 and 24 deal with motors, controls, applications of refrigeration and air-conditioning process in food preservation. The text and illustrative examples are in SI units throughout the book. Charts and tables have been adapted in SI units. The book is intended to serve as a text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering.

2. “A Text book of Refrigeration and Air conditioning” by Kurmi R S and J K Gupta
