Air conditioning equipment/systems


Explanation:
This is the nearest thing to a generic term as far as I know. Quite often sometimes just "air conditioning".

Or sometimes even: "air conditioning, aeration and ventilation equipment"

  -> thanks, Walter!

agree  coolbrowne: Yes. There is no such thing as "acclimatizer" and "climate control" kind of looks the same, but it fades out once one realizes that "climatizador" is a Brazilian trick to synthesize the awkward "condicionador de ar".
