Throughout the United States and around the world, NFPA 70: National Electrical Code (NEC) sets the foundation for electrical safety in residential, commercial, and industrial occupancies. The 2017 edition of this trusted Code presents the latest comprehensive regulations for electrical wiring, overcurrent protection, grounding, and installation of equipment. Major additions reflect the continuing growth in renewable power technology. Other NEC revisions protect the public and workers from deadly hazards. Work with the latest requirements governing public and private buildings, homes, and structures; outdoor yards and lots; utility equipment; installations that connect to the power grid; and consumer-owned power generation systems and equipment. The 2017 NEC is better aligned with the safe work practices in NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. (Softbound, 888 pp., 2017)
Manual S shows you how to select and size heating and cooling equipment to meet loads for a particular home, which are based on local climate and home construction specifics. Contractors in Miami, Phoenix, and Seattle - all extremely different climates - would never use the same equipment and expect the same results. Manual S provides sizing requirements for 11 types of cooling and heating equipment, as well as in-depth explanations and examples of how to use manufacturer's performance data.
