Fan Coil Terminal

Continuing the discussion from ARE Live: PPD Mock Exam '22:

Is a fan coil terminal just another name for a wall based A/C unit?

Hi @chuckw !

Thanks for your question, I’m just copying in my response from the ARE Live Chat:

A fan coil terminal is a wall based unit that allows for heating and cooling of a room and is a terminal point that is a part of a decentralized HVAC system. You’ll see these a lot in hotel rooms. Let me know if you need further clarification. Thanks!
