Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Training

Learn about Superheat, Subcooling, the Refrigeration Cycle, Troubleshooting and much, much more!

There are a great number of technical publications dealing with refrigeration training but few are written from a mechanics perspective. This one is. It illustrates the mechanical refrigeration process and related topics with straight forward explanations and graphics. It's intent is to make it easy to understand important concepts and terminology. Traditional refrigeration textbooks cover such a large scope of material and in such great detail that basic concepts often become lost in the process. This interactive CD-ROM is a preparation for anyone who is in the industry or interested in entering the air conditioning and refrigeration trade and is an introduction to some of the immediate problems one will face in the field. It is designed for those who:
  • are considering going into the refrigeration trade or trade college
  • wish an easily understandable overview of HVAC/R (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning/Refrigeration)
  • wish a reference of basic refrigeration concepts
  • are interested in these topics
  • are technicians who wish to review or expand their knowledge
Available on CD-ROM from, this refrigeration training course produced by Seaside Computing is presented in a clear interesting manner utilizing interactive graphics and logically organized material, all from a mechanics perspective. Learn about the mechanical refrigeration process and how to diagnose and troubleshoot refrigerant side, air side, and electrical side problems.


Version II - Standard

Version II is packed with features at a very economical price.

See the online sample sections and try the

interactive electrical troubleshooting boards.

Limited Time Special Offer - Only $95.00


Learn to Troubleshoot

Version III - Professional

The Version III release contains everything from the previous version as well as an amazing 100 interactive troubleshooting boards with fully functional test instruments. Learn the basics and then develop your troubleshooting skills on various types of refrigeration and air conditioning systems. All 100 boards utilize high and low side pressure gauges, a 9 point digital thermometer for measuring refrigerant, air, and water temperatures and of course an Amp/Ohm/Volt meter which measures all test points on the electrical schematics.

Limited Time Special Offer - Only $179.00

Features (Both Versions)
Interactive Graphics
Sequential overlaid graphics are used to clearly illustrate the topic at hand. Buttons allow interactive back and forth control for logical comparisons.
Animated Graphics
Animations are used to clearly demonstrate concepts like heat flow and the mechanical workings of things like reciprocating, scroll and rotary compressors and bimetal warp switches.
Full Screen Graphics
Many sections, especially the troubleshooting boards use full screen graphics. The need to side scroll is eliminated because Refrigeration Basics senses your screen resolution and loads the page designed for your particular resolution. All resolutions are supported and exact full screen implementation is provided for [640x480], [800x600] , [1024x768]
Actively Linked Index
The Contents section is presented in a logical learning progression. There is also a linked Index to quickly locate topics. The links take you instantly to the exact spot on the specific page that covers the topic.
Actively Linked Review Questions
Each section has review questions which link to the spot on the appropriate page that covers the topic.
PT Chart Refrigerant Data Base
92 Pressure/Temperature Charts linked by ASHRAE and Trade Name Index. Each PT Chart also shows chemical formula, chemical name, recommended oil and if it is a blend lists the ODS refrigerant that it replaces.
Interactive Refrigerant Side Diagnostics
The relationship between refrigerant side parameters are explored with the interactive Causes & Effects tutorial. Although this course starts off with the basics it lets the participant advance to the point where complex refrigerant side parameters are dealt with in an interactive way.
Interactive Electrical Troubleshooting
After being presented with electrical basics, learn to troubleshoot electrical schematics with built in faults with simulated Amp/Volt/Ohm meters.
Exam marks itself
100 question, multiple choice exam fully tests participantís grasp of the material. Submit button displays participant's mark in percentage.
