How to Create a HVAC Plan

HVAC plans are used to make and maintain systems of heating and air conditioning. HVAC plan is an important part of building planning. It is developed for private family houses as well as for apartment and public buildings. Making HVAC plans as a part of construction documentation package essential requirement for any building project. Making a plan that shows the location and connection of HVAC equipment involves many different elements that can be managed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM reinforced with HVAC Plans solution. With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can easily create and communicate HVAC plans of any complexity.
The vector stencil library "HVAC ductwork" contains 63 duct and vent symbols.
Use it for drawing HVAC system diagrams, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, automated building control, and environmental control design floor
plans and equipment layouts.
"Ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and remove air. These needed airflows include, for example, supply air, return air, and exhaust air. Ducts also deliver, most commonly as part of the supply air, ventilation air. As such, air ducts are one method of ensuring acceptable indoor air quality as well as thermal comfort.
A duct system is often called ductwork. Planning ('laying out'), sizing, optimizing, detailing, and finding the pressure losses through a duct system is called duct design." [Duct (HVAC). Wikipedia]
The vector stencils example "Design elements - HVAC ductwork" is included in HVAC Plans solution from the Building Plans area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

"HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field's abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR, or ventilating is dropped as in HACR (such as the designation of HACR-rated circuit breakers).
HVAC is important in the design of medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and in marine environments such as aquariums, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors." [HVAC. Wikipedia]

The vector stencil library "HVAC controls" contains contains 24 HVAC control symbols: sensors, actuators, timers, controllers, I/ O points.
Use it for drawing HVAC system diagrams, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, automated building control, and environmental control design floor
plans and equipment layouts.
"HVAC (... Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) is a control system that applies regulation to a heating and/ or air conditioning system. ...
Central controllers and most terminal unit controllers are programmable, meaning the direct digital control program code may be customized for the intended use. The program features include time schedules, setpoints, controllers, logic, timers, trend logs, and alarms. The unit controllers typically have analog and digital inputs that allow measurement of the variable (temperature, humidity, or pressure) and analog and digital outputs for control of the transport medium (hot/ cold water and/ or steam). Digital inputs are typically (dry) contacts from a control device, and analog inputs are typically a voltage or current measurement from a variable (temperature, humidity, velocity, or pressure) sensing device. Digital outputs are typically relay contacts used to start and stop equipment, and analog outputs are typically voltage or current signals to control the movement of the medium (air/ water/ steam) control devices such as valves, dampers, and motors."

White goods/ major appliances comprise major household appliances and may include: air conditioner, dishwasher, clothes dryer, drying cabinet, freezer, refrigerator, kitchen stove, water heater, washing machine, trash compactor, microwave ovens and induction cookers.
Brown goods/ small appliances are typically small household electrical entertainment appliances such as: TV sets, CD and DVD players, camcorders, still cameras, clocks, alarm clocks, video game consoles, HiFi and home cinema, telephones and answering machines.
Consumer electronics (abbreviated CE) are electronic equipment intended for everyday use, most often in entertainment, communications and office productivity. Main products include radio receivers, television sets, MP3 players, video recorders, DVD players, digital cameras, camcorders, personal computers, video game consoles, telephones and mobile phones."
