HVAC system installation

Assemble, test, disassemble ... and learn

People working in HVAC must have excellent manual skills, regardless of whether they are involved in service, design or application. Practical training is essential in order to become familiar with the wide range of tools and devices used to install, maintain and repair various systems in real-world situations.

Practical skills in focus

Our HVAC practice kits teach the basic skills needed for wiring, pipe installation, draining, filling, testing and troubleshooting. Students use the kits to perform assembly, testing and disassembly exercises.

Available practice kits:

Heat pump

This practice kit contains the basic components of a typical heat pump and has two operating modes: cooling and heating.

  • Forms a switchable air conditioning system whose basic components can be found in many buildings
  • Contains two coolant metering controllers and a reversing circuit
  • Horizontally mounted, forced-air evaporator and compressor with cooling fan
