Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems and fans provide air-conditioning and heating inside military vehicles, shelters, and other installations.

HVAC military systems include portable or vehicle-mounted systems and can also be installed in military tents and humanitarian camps.

Blowers can be used to cool ducts, and in equipment such as combat helmets and night-vision gear. Military applications of ducts include command posts, decontamination facilities, communications centres, and tactical shelters.
