About the course

This course describes the main components of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in details. It will start by introducing the basics of a theoretical system and its performance analysis. Then, an overview of the system components will be highlighted together with the construction details of each. Work will be carried out to describe the main operating principles and to emphasis on the rule of operation and maintenance for these parts. The participants will be sharing the new ideas for operation with the help of catalogues, photos and available software programs.
