Looking into HVAC categorization in ComStock, I was wondering if there is any documentation that discussion what each category includes. Specifically, I am interested in steam systems and what system type (in ComStock description) includes pre-war steam radiator buildings and post-war hydronic baseboards/fancoils/induction system?

Thanks very much,

Does the enumeration dictionary help?

The ComStock HVAC types are derived from CBECS data, so you could also try looking at the CBECS codebook.
