A packaged rooftop unit, or RTU, is a type of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system that contains all the components needed to provide conditioned air in one concise unit.
A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid coolant via a vapor-compression, adsorption refrigeration, or absorption refrigeration cycles. This liquid can then be circulated through a heat exchanger to cool equipment, or another process stream (such as air or process water).
Make-Up Air units are designed to replace exhaust air by bringing in fresh outdoor air into the space and heating or cooling it to the desired condition and discharge the conditioned or tempered air into the building.
Mechanical ventilation is the intentional fan driven flow of outdoor air into a building.
A heat pump is a device that can heat a building (or part of a building) by transferring thermal energy from the outside using the refrigeration cycle.
pneumatic pressure controls move pressurized or compressed air “signals” from a controller to a device through copper or plastic tubes. Pneumatic controls stand in contrast to electronic controls, which send and receive electric or electronic signals.
the process of subjecting food or drink to cold in order to chill or preserve it.
An environmental chamber, also called a climatic chamber or climate chamber, is an enclosure used to test the effects of specified environmental conditions on biological items, industrial products, materials, and electronic devices and components.
Boilers are one of the chief energy-producing systems in buildings, providing space heating as well as domestic hot water supply to buildings and occupants. Boilers create either steam or hot water to distribute thermal energy between and within buildings.
The common cooking appliance that combines an oven and a stovetop/cooktop.
Heat recovery ventilation (HRV), also known as mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR), is an energy recovery ventilation system which works between two sources at different temperatures.
Building automation system (BAS) is a network designed to connect and automate certain functions inside a building. All of the building control systems, from lighting and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) to fire and security systems—all wired through one set of controls.
