The 2018 Uniform Mechanical Code provides you with the information you need regarding maintenance and installation of refrigeration systems, cooling systems, heating systems, and ventilating systems.  This incredible code goes over the standards and expectations you need to comply with to stay safe and sanitary, but also gives you the room you need to try and experiment with new and upcoming materials and products.  The 2018 UMC is an incredible resource that can be used on the job or in the office, especially when it comes in a convenient soft cover format.  Don’t get frustrated with loose papers when everything can be convenient in a soft cover format. 

The 2018 edition of the UMC is incredible special because it is one of the first major codes to address Global Warming Potential Refrigerants.  By addressing these refrigerants the 2018 Uniform Mechanical Code addresses the specific provisions for low flammability refrigerants like A2L or B2L.  This incredible code was created by the men and woman who use it such as manufacturers, researchers, users, installers, laborers, and many more.  It was literally made by the people and for the people.  It provides you with a unique code that covers all the questions and problems with the mechanical industry instead of presenting something that is one sided. 

The 2018 Uniform Mechanical Code brings some new and exciting topics to the table such as new sizing provisions for duct leakage testing requirements, duct systems, and new provisions for air dispersion systems.  It also goes over the requirements for pressure regulators and electrical furnaces. It also discusses the new provisions needed for Type I and Type II exhaust systems.  If you work in the mechanical field, or need to comply with the UMC then this is the manual for you.  It’s the next great addition to your library!
