Integrated performance simulation of buildings’ heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems can help in reducing energy consumption and increasing occupant comfort. Recognizing this fact, in the last forty years many tools have been developed to help achieving this goal. In this paper we introduce a categorization of these tools with respect to which problems they are meant to deal with and summarize current approaches used for modelling (i) HVAC components, (ii) HVAC control and (iii) HVAC systems in general. Further in this paper, we list issues associated with applications of HVAC modelling and simulation. Finally, we present and discuss co-simulation as one of solutions that can alleviate some of the recognized issues.
