INFOGRAPHIC: The Periodic Table of HVAC TermsKevin Dugan
The periodic table has been in use for 150 years and is the basic scientific tool used to help solve any number of problems. It’s such a popular reference tool, there are even versions of it that have nothing to do with the chemical elements. There are periodic tables for everything from music and adult beverages to food and cars.

This popularity is due to the periodic table’s ability to organize any data into categories and serve it up in a tabular display. This format also reinforces the importance of the basics. And when you’re passionate about a topic, the periodic table is a whole new way to explore it.
So when we didn’t see a periodic table for HVAC terms, we decided to create one.
How We Made Our List
There are 118 elements on the periodic table of elements, but we had to narrow down our list of HVAC terms to less than 5o. This was to make sure there was plenty of room on the back to define each term.
Otherwise, we chose these words at random. But they all fell into three categories: measurements, equipment and industry terms.
Share & Suggest More
We’re obsessed with all things HVAC. So if you think there’s another category or term we should add, let us know. If we get enough suggestions, we can create a second version.
In the meantime, we hope this one comes in handy. Feel free to print out and share with others.
