"The atmosphere of Earth is a layer of gases surrounding the planet Earth that is retained by Earth's gravity. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation, warming the surface through heat retention (greenhouse effect), and reducing temperature extremes between day and night (the diurnal temperature variation).
The common name given to the atmospheric gases used in breathing and photosynthesis is air. By volume, dry air contains 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.039% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases. Air also contains a variable amount of water vapor, on average around 1%. Although air content and atmospheric pressure vary at different layers, air suitable for the survival of terrestrial plants and terrestrial animals currently is only known to be found in Earth's troposphere and artificial atmospheres."

This HVAC plan sample shows the air handler layout on the floor plan.
"An air handler, or air handling unit (often abbreviated to AHU), is a device used to condition and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. An air handler is usually a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through the building and returns it to the AHU. Sometimes AHUs discharge (supply) and admit (return) air directly to and from the space served without ductwork.
Small air handlers, for local use, are called terminal units, and may only include an air filter, coil, and blower; these simple terminal units are called blower coils or fan coil units. A larger air handler that conditions 100% outside air, and no recirculated air, is known as a makeup air unit (MAU). An air handler designed for outdoor use, typically on roofs, is known as a packaged unit (PU) or rooftop unit (RTU)." [Air handler. Wikipedia]

This HVAC schematics sample depicts the house cool mode of central air pool heater. It was drawn on the base of the HVAC schematics in the post "Central Air Pool Heater" from the Nathan Stratton's blog.
"With House Cool Mode, hot gas leaves the compressor runs through the reversing value into the condenser where it condenses into a liquid. Valve #1 is ON so liquid is able to leave the outside unit and run through the filter dryer and site glass into the evaporator upstairs in the house where the liquid flashes into a gas as it passes through the expansion valve and absorbs heat from the air passing through the evaporator. The cold gas travels downstairs and outside to the compressor and the cycle starts all over again." [robotics.net/projects/central-air-pool-heater/]
