Heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology is used to control temperature and humidity in an indoor environment such as buildings or vehicles, providing thermal comfort and healthy air quality to the occupants.

HVAC systems can be designed for an isolated space, an individual building or a distributed heating and cooling network within a building structure or district heating system. The latter provides economies of scale and also scope for integration with solar heat, natural seasonal cooling/heating etc.
