Assignment 5:  HVAC Systems Variety

We where asked to investigate two HVAC systems with the intent of explaining them to our classmates.  With the knowledge that is acquired from this assignment we will later be asked to choose the best HVAC system for a particular structure.  Our two particular systems are passive solar and windows.  We considered them as systems and subsystems and commented on their characteristics, with particular emphasis on their applicability in different design situations.


We hope that our website might help you further understand passive solar HVAC systems and how they work.  You should have enough knowledge then to be able to decide weather or not a passive solar or a window system is the right choice for your own HVAC needs.

Harvey & Fazio welcome Professor Mitchell and the AE 390 Classes to proceed and Enjoy our Webpage.
