What is HVAC?

For all of you that do not know, HVAC stands for heating, ventilating and air conditioning. It is a 3-in-1 unit designed to control and maintain the air temperature, quality and humidity in enclosed spaces. Simply put, HVAC provides thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality.


HVAC is considered the best in its category in terms of performance and function and also for the reduction of noise. As is the case with any industrial system, HVAC also needs to be monitored and regularly maintained to ensure longevity and optimal performance. Before we go over which HVAC testing tools should be used to monitor the work of a HVAC system, let’s go over the main parts that compose this system.
1. Fans and blowers allow the circulation of fresh air into the other units of the HVAC system. They are usually placed on the outer walls or, above the ceilings.

2. Controllers and chillers are mainly part of HVAC systems in industrial areas. They function mainly with fluids such as water, oils, refrigeration fluids.

HVAC Testing Tools:

The HVAC testing tools are designed to enable you to analyze the work of the HVAC system providing accurate results. A good example of a very useful testing tool is the Wireless HVAC Guide Analyzer. This tools is an entire system that can be used to conduct a wide variety of tests on your HVAC systems to help lower your energy bills.

Another great example of must-have HVAC testing tools is the Fieldpiece HS36K19G Gas Static Pressure Field Pack kit, which is a great starter kit for new technicians, which means it is fairly easy to use. In addition to the mainstream accessory heads like vacuum gauge accessory head, this kit also features a carbon monoxide accessory head, which measures the CO levels and air or gas pressures.

All HVAC testing tools are designed to provide automatic calculation of crucial parameters like pressure, temperature, voltage, current values, etc. Rugged structure ensures there is no damage in case a toll falls and the compact design makes them easy to carry. They provide fast results and are easy to use, which is very important. And above all, these tools provide accurate measurements.

Whether you need a HVAC system for your office or your house, there are few things you should have in mind. First of all, it is an investment. It costs quite a lot, even with the cost-effective adjustments engineers made on several parts. Secondly, always make sure you check the features that the product supposedly has. It is recommended to purchase the system from the dealer that offers site support during technical difficulties and installation of the system.

Prioritize quality when buying a HVAC. Do the same when it comes to HVAC testing tools to ensure accurate results. This will help you with the monitoring of the condition of your HVAC system.
