Learning outcomes:

The main objectives regarding the building equipments field is to offer the basic information on how to realize the human comfort parameters and how to manage the dimension problems of the certain systems. A short history of the building equipments systems is also very useful to the final target.


Comfort. Definition. Comfort areas: thermal, sanitary, visual, environmental.
Heating systems. Heating sources-local source, central heaters, co-generation. Heating pathways and distribution pipelines. Equipment- for sources (heaters, heat exchangers, boilers, heat pumps, solar collectors, geothermal), pipe distribution, terminals (radiators, fancoils, convectors), air distribution (air channels and grills).
Air conditioning systems. Equipment's- fans, heat/chill batteries, filters, treatment, noise, heating recovery exchanger's. Elements of the air pollutants and filtering methods. Sick building syndrome
Air channels. Inlet/outlet elements; air flow controllers of the certain restricted areas.
Chiller sources: passive and active procedures, chillers-structure, mounting restrictions. Flow pipes for the cold water respecting distribution restrictions.
Sanitary equipment's: water sources, distribution pipes, consumers. Interior distribution for cold/ domestic hot water. Sanitary equipment's and services, bathroom and kitchen, restrictions. waste and rain sewage. Fire-fighting problems and fire extinguish systems .
Electrical equipment's. Mains sources, security sources, Raceways. End-users. Lighting systems, interior and outside design lighting, emergency lighting, little currents equipment's, building monitoring systems.
