HVAC Equipment Design

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) is an extremely competitive industry, and the main pressure is to design more effective equipment at a faster rate. Improvements that address noise reduction, energy efficiency, eco-friendly design and reliability are pivotal for HVAC manufacturers trying to get ahead of the competition.

Simulation Driven Product Development using ANSYS software allows designers to analyze the performance of their equipment in a variety of scenarios, without having to build physical prototypes during the preliminary design stages.

ANSYS technology incorporates extensive capabilities across multiple disciplines, so engineers can apply mechanical, fluids and multiphysics tools to a wide range of HVAC equipment design, including:

  • Air cleaning equipment
  • Air conditioners
  • Air handlers
  • Burner design/boilers
  • Chillers
  • Diffusers
  • Heat exchangers/coils
  • Humidifiers/dehumidifiers
  • Heating equipment
  • Pumps/blowers, fans and compressors/exhausters
  • Refrigeration
