Appendix chapters provide overviews of methods for including crawlspaces in the conditioned space and such HVAC accessories as UV lights, zoning, and advanced air filtering methods to enhance indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for occupants.

More detailed information and new concepts are included in the 278-page publication for earth energy heat exchanger methods and ground source heat pumps. Updated construction code requirements are reflected throughout the range of HVAC system types along with energy efficiency and sustainable practices.
