What is Climate Control Technology?
Freeing us from the restrictions of the weather and its corresponding fluctuations in temperature, Climate Control Technology has made it possible for us to live in any region or season that we choose. There are Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) systems to keep our homes and workplaces functionally comfortable, and refrigeration units to minimize our trips to the grocery store. These modern-day conveniences are easy to take for granted, until they no longer work.
