HVAC system components may be grouped into three functional categories: source components, distribution components, and delivery components. Source components provide or remove heat or moisture. Distribution components convey a heating or cooling medium from a source location to portions of a building that require conditioning. Delivery components serve as an interface between the distribution system and occupied spaces. Compact systems that serve only one space or zone of a building (local systems) often incorporate all three functions in a single piece of equipment. Systems that are intended to condition multiple spaces in a building (central systems) usually have distinctly different equipment elements for each function.

This 8-hour course provides information on the various types of HVAC heating and cooling equipment along with associated system design aspects. The course describes how to select appropriate HVAC equipment for your application and how to integrate various components as a working system. This course is in continuation to the course titled "HVAC Concepts and Fundamentals", which introduced the basic design aspects, comfort parameters, psychrometrics, heat transfer concepts, heat loss and heat gain calculations and methods to calculate the energy costs.

This course is intended for people who plan, design, install, and operate HVAC systems for buildings. Design engineers, architects, designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers and maintenance personal should benefit professionally. It is also relevant to anyone needing to know more about HVAC equipment production and use. Previous knowledge of the subject is not required.
