There are many heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that are designed for different applications, complexity, and controls. In this presentation, we introduce the basics of HVAC equipment and systems for facilities personnel and others who manage HVAC systems. This presentation will cover different HVAC systems from small unit heaters and air conditioning units to large Variable-Air-Volume (VAV) systems. The session will cover how each system works and typical applications for each system.
