HVAC System for Cars and Automotive Vehicles
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on vehicle Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, and presents the various approaches to climate control systems.


HVAC in passenger cars is a complex system comprising of one or more blower motors coupled with many ducts, actuators for airflow, temperature and fogging control, and refrigeration and heating units in the hood.


The primary purpose of HVAC systems is to provide a comfortable ride for the driver and on-board passengers. In addition, the air conditioner dehumidifies the cabin air, thus preventing windows from fogging up. It also plays a key role in terms of safety, even during extreme weather conditions, as it ensures the demisting of the cab environment and defogging of windows. A vehicle HVAC system is not just desirable, but is a necessary standard equipment even in entry-level vehicles manufactured today.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to professional engineers who are interested learning more about automotive HVAC and climate control systems.
