The HVAC system in a ship controls the complete onboard climate. HVAC systems in ships are very rarely a one size fits all game. Therefore, a thorough assessment of your objectives and requirements is necessary to provide your ship with the best possible HVAC system. Limited space, environmental conditions, type of cargo, and the type of vessel all influence the decisions in the process of designing your HVAC system. These systems require special maintenance and preventative measures to keep them running smoothly.
