Auto Heating and Air Conditioning is designed for students to prepare for the ASE Certification Test A7. However, students can take this course strictly to enhance their skills and knowledge as well. It is expected that students will be working in a shop environment in order to get the hands-on experience needed while going through the course and gaining the knowledge and theory of auto heating and air conditioning. This course will be using digital content from the publisher Goodheart-Willcox, and the digital book Auto Heating and Air Conditioning, 4th Edition by Chris Johanson, Copyright 2021.
Auto Heating and Air Conditioning is a comprehensive course that focuses on operation, diagnosis, and service topics. It contains detailed information on refrigeration, heating, and engine cooling system components; climate control electronics; refrigerant handling; and both manual and automatic temperature control systems. Proper refrigerant recovering and recycling practices are emphasized. This text is a valuable resource for anyone who needs a thorough understanding of today’s automotive heating and air conditioning systems, including those preparing for ASE Certification Test A7, Heating and Air Conditioning.
