The manual covers natural, mechanical and hybrid comfort cooling systems, as well as building design and moisture-management strategies.

Providing a holistic overview of the topic, DA20 offers insight on the underlying engineering theory; the design and installation stage; and commissioning, operation and maintenance. Air conditioning receives detailed attention, with comprehensive information on equipment selection and application, system design strategies, system controls and detailed design notes, particularly in respect of moisture management.
