HVAC symbols in electrical and electronic schematics are used in the design of the printed circuit board or wiring diagram of the air conditioning system. If you would like to troubleshoot the system which is not functioning well, getting a manual and the circuit diagram of the system is necessary.
Most of the circuit diagram or schematic diagram have components of which the symbols are quite universal in nature with the exception of some components which may vary slightly from between Europe, North America and the rest of the world.
