Deutsch: Heizung
HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; also heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. The heat generation is done by a heater.

In the industrial context, a heater is a device used to generate heat, typically for a specific purpose or application. Here are some examples of industries and applications where heaters are commonly used:

  1. Oil and gas industry: Heaters are used in the oil and gas industry to heat crude oil or natural gas to make it easier to transport and process.

  2. Chemical industry: Heaters are used in chemical reactions to increase the temperature and speed up the reaction. They can also be used to maintain a certain temperature in a process.

  3. Food industry: Heaters are used in various food processing applications, such as baking, roasting, and frying.

  4. Automotive industry: Heaters are used in vehicles to warm the interior of the vehicle, defrost windows, and heat engine coolant to improve engine performance.

Similar concepts in the industrial context include:

  1. Boilers: Boilers are devices that generate steam or hot water, often using a fuel source such as natural gas, oil, or coal. They are commonly used in industrial applications such as power generation and heating.

  2. Furnaces: Furnaces are devices used for high-temperature applications, such as melting metals, producing glass, or firing ceramics.

  3. Heat exchangers: Heat exchangers are devices that transfer heat between two fluids, without the fluids mixing. They are commonly used in industrial applications such as cooling or heating fluids in a process.

  4. Thermal insulation: Thermal insulation materials are used to reduce the transfer of heat between objects or surfaces. This is important in industrial settings to minimize heat loss or gain, and to improve energy efficiency.
