The potential for energy savings is vast, but an accurate evaluation is needed to achieve true savings.
HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; also heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field’s abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR, (heating, ventilating and air-conditioning & Refrigeration) or ventilating is dropped as in HACR (such as the designation of HACR-rated circuit breakers).
Smart HVAC controls are intelligent devices, attached to different HVAC system. These devices give command to the e.g. heat pump for temperature and air flow control. It also defines the temperature to be set according to the weather condition outside the building environment and communicate with the user accordingly the cost effectiveness of the system in terms of energy usage.
When a conventional HVAC controls is equipped with decision making capability, it is termed as a Smart HVAC Controls, i.e Smart HVAC Controls available in the market requires an external agent to integrate in the homes or buildings.

- Electronic tracking of each truck in our fleet, to insure a prompt response to your every need.
Ventilating or ventilation (the V in HVAC) is the process of “exchanging” or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality which involves temperature control, oxygen replenishment, and removal of moisture, odors, smoke, heat, dust, airborne bacteria, and carbon dioxide. Ventilation removes unpleasant smells and excessive moisture, introduces outside air, keeps interior building air circulating, and prevents stagnation of the interior air.
WHAT COULD BE CONTROLLED?
Generally, building automation begins with control of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems. For instance, the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is almost always controlled, including control of its various pieces of equipment such as:
- Air Handling Units (AHUs)
- Fan Coil Units (FCUs)
- Heat Pump Units (HPUs)
- Variable Air Volume boxes (VAVs)
The Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technical Services program prepares the student to enter the industry with a background in the design, installation and service of commercial and residential HVAC/R systems. Course content includes: refrigeration theory, heat transfer systems, system design and electrical theory and application. The lecture courses are reinforced by nine hours per week of hands-on training in our state-of-the-art laboratories. This combination of lecture and hands-on work provides the student with a unique educational experience that will provide the training necessary to successfully enter the workforce
