Course Background
Mechanical Ventilation (MV) and Air Conditioning (A/C) systems are complex mechanical systems.

MV is used to introduce fresh outside air into buildings, circulate air within buildings and, remove odours and moisture in buildings. Air conditioning (A/C) on the other hand conditions/alters the properties of air to provide indoor environments conducive to human comfort and production processes therein.

MV and AC systems must be maintained to ensure proper functioning. Poor indoor air quality caused by maintenance neglect can affect the health and productivity of workers; inability of the systems to perform optimally will also mean higher energy bills.
