Looking to learn refrigeration

Hi All,

I'm looking for some suggestions of books, blogs, videos, etc.... to help me better understand refrigeration systems for both heating/airconditioning and cooler applications.  Maybe like a "Modern Hydronics" for the refrigeration world.  I'm from the wholesale industry and am decent with hydronics, but am looking to step it up on the refigeration side.  Thanks a bunch.

    It's great that you have shown an interest in HVAC and reading books is great.  Alot can be learned and this field is always updating.  I would suggest a course in Refrigeration as there is a lot of engineering theory and physics that must be understood or at least able to be referenced to apply it to the craft. Especially today, there is no guessing or close enough.  You'd better be able to back up your installs and be able to perform calculations just to get the said rebate promo's the manufacturers offer.
