|WikiProject Technology||(Rated Template-class)|
I have just released this new Template:HVAC, and added it to the bottom of the HVAC article. The template's purpose is to provide an overview of all Wikipedia articles related to the subject, and to allow quick navigation among them. Another purpose is to make it easier to see all the HVAC-related articles, so that they can be reorganized, coordinated, and improved. Please look at the template and (politely) let me know what you think, before I roll it out more generally to all the articles listed in it.
As you review the articles, you may notice that some of them partially overlap or appear to be redundant (for example, Forced-air gas and Heating system). Part of the purpose of this template is to reveal these overlaps (and also gaps in coverage). Do not remove apparently-redundant articles from this template. Instead, tag the articles themselves for merge or deletion, as appropriate. Only after the changes are complete should you remove the now-obsolete articles from the template.
This is only a first draft version of the template, so please feel free to add to the template any HVAC articles I somehow missed. The subcategories in the template are also a first try, and ideas for improvement are welcome.
In the absence of a WP:WIKIPROJECT for HVAC, I suggest using this Template talk page as a place to discuss the overall cleanup efforts. Reify-tech (talk) 21:23, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:HVAC which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 18:30, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
