Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

The necessity of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) control of environmental conditions within buildings has been well established over the years as being highly desirable for various types of occupancy and comfort conditions as well as for many industrial manufacturing processes. In fact, without HVAC systems, many manufactured products produced by industry that are literally taken for granted would not be available today.
