The purpose of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (commonly referred to as HVAC systems) is to provide environments that are comfortable for people and allow equipment to operate safely and reliably. HVAC systems are used in residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. This module contains information on hot water heating systems, air distribution systems, and HVAC control systems.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify the four main components of a hydronic (hot water) heating system
  • Identify the safety devices typically installed on hot water boilers
  • Identify and describe the components of a hot water boiler
  • Identify and describe the types of fans, dampers, and filters that are commonly used in HVAC duct systems
  • Identify and describe primary flows
  • List the components used in HVAC control systems
  • Describe the main types of HVAC control systems
  • List important inspections and points to monitor in HVAC systems

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are the four main components to a hydronic heating system?
The four main parts to a hydronic heating system are: a hot water boiler to supply heat; piping and pumps to distribute heat; radiators and/or convectors to emit heat; and control equipment to control water and room temperatures.

What variables do automatic control systems control?
Automatic control sysems used by HVAC systems control: temperature, humidity, pressure, and ventilation (or air distribution).

What are the three safety devices are typically seen with a hot water boiler?
Hot water boilers are typically equipped with safety relief valve to prevent over-pressurization, low-water cutoff to shut off fuel to the boiler on low water, and water-gauge glass to verify the water level.

Why are filters used in HVAC systems?
Filters are used in HVAC systems to remove particulate contaminants from the air stream in distribution ducts.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

All air systems can be single duct or dual duct. Single duct systems provide cooling and heating using the same duct, but cannot provide them simultaneously. Dual duct and multi-zone systems can provide heating and cooling simultaneously. A dual duct system employs two air ducts, a cold air duct and a warm air duct, which run parallel to each other. In an air water system, both air and water are used for temperature control in the condition to spaces. The air and water are cooled or heated in a central plant. The air supplied is called primary air, and the water is called secondary water. Ducting systems with fans distribute the air and water pipelines, and pumps distribute the water.

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
