What is HVAC?
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, its goal is to provide thermal comfort and healthier indoor air quality. It plays an important role in ventilating large areas such as malls, hotels, apartment buildings, large businesses, on board vessels, and in marine environments.
Heating is the process of making something warm, especially the building. The heating system is a machine used for maintaining temperatures at a satisfactory level; by using thermal energy within a home, office, or other large business.
Ventilation is the process of “changing” or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality. By diluting and displacing indoor pollutants, it can also be used for purposes of thermal comfort or dehumidification, when the introduction of outside air will help to achieve desired indoor conditions.
