Heating,Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration

HVACR systems can play several roles to reduce the environmental impact of buildings. The primary function of HVACR systems is to provide healthy and comfortable interior conditions for occupants.

Well-designed, efficient systems do this with minimal non-renewable energy as well as low air and water pollutant emissions.

HVAC is often used to refer to these styles of applications, with the “R” for refrigeration not being used in many cases. HVACR is also referred to as “climate control” as in many buildings the primary function is to maintain and regulate the environmental conditions.
