MACS publishes new mobile A/C textbook

Today’s technician must be more than a parts-changer. As HVAC systems become more sophisticated and incorporate extensive computer controls, more sensors, new components and new refrigerants, old knowledge will no longer serve. Proper education and training is the key to successful service and repair.  To meet the training needs of the industry, the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide introduces its new textbook, Modern Automotive HVAC Systems.

Modern Automotive HVAC Systems is a 160-page text designed to sharpen technician skills through both a review of basic principles and presentation of industry-accepted best practices for all aspects of HVAC diagnosis and repair. 
Modern Automotive HVAC Systems is designed for both the automotive technical classroom and the professional working in the field. The classroom version includes a powerpoint presentation with 211 slides.

“MACS has dedicated the time and resources to create the Modern Automotive HVAC Systems textbook because automotive climate control has evolved quickly in the past 30 years; air conditioning was once a luxury option but has become standard today on almost every vehicle. Additionally, mainly due to environmental concerns, climate control is one of the very few systems on a vehicle governed by specific rules and laws for material handling and technician certification,” explained Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and COO.

Modern Automotive HVAC Systems is available through the MACS website store at or by calling the MACS office at (215) 631-7020, extension 304.
