operated


Explanation:
You ca judge the logic of my explanation by your context.

The devices are operated depending on how they work, thus if it's cold you turn the heat on, if it's warm you turn the cooler on (if it's still about the ventilation systems)

switched


Explanation:
I think it is not about operating the machines, it is about switching the machines during operation or while operating into a different speed or gear etc.
