The descriptions of what each variable means are listed in the Input Output Reference documentation.

The variables you mention are outputs from ElectricLoadCenter:Distribution (docs).

Facility Total Building Electric Demand Power [W]

This output variable includes all of the electric demand from the building (non-HVAC) portion of the simulation, which would contain lights, electrical equipment, exterior lights and equipment, etc. Facility

Total HVAC Electric Demand Power [W]

This output variable includes all of the electric demand from the HVAC portion of the simulation, which would contain fans, electric coils, pumps, chillers, cooling towers, etc.
