Nothing is more welcoming when something goes wrong with your HVAC system than seeing the Air Experts truck pull up to your New Jersey home. Have you ever wondered what’s in the truck that helps us diagnose and fix your heating or cooling issues? Our HVAC technicians need supplies for various jobs, from minor residential fixes to large commercial installations. Even if they only need a few items to handle your problem, the next job might be complex. Here’s a peek at what our professional HVAC technicians bring to every job to ensure you’re comfortable when we depart.
What’s in front
Our HVAC trucks are handy office spaces for our technicians, who carry the necessary paperwork or computer tablets to write contracts or service orders. This necessary paperwork may seem like a formality, but it protects you, the consumer, with our exceptional service and home protection guarantees. The front of the truck may also be a dining area for a busy technician who has to grab a burger on the fly between jobs, so don’t be surprised if you see evidence of a hastily eaten lunch!
When our home comfort professionals arrive at your home, they will first need to assess the problem. Ideally, your HVAC system is easily accessible. Sometimes, though, there’s a little work involved as the technician must navigate past plumbing fixtures or drywall. That’s why they carry an assortment of screwdrivers, drills, hammers, and wrenches. They also bring appropriate lighting to illuminate dark spaces and ladders to reach what’s up high.
Tools of the trade
Special tools are needed to diagnose and treat your HVAC issues. Here are a few things you might see in the back of an HVAC truck:
Safety tools are imperative for HVAC techs who may be working around electrical currents. A multimeter is used to check for voltage in spaces where the tech will be working, which is an important safety concern. Our technicians also have durable gloves, safety goggles, and appropriate footwear.
Hand tools are necessary for almost every HVAC job. HVAC technicians often have to use hammers, screwdrivers, tape measures, and crescent wrenches. You may notice that your Air Experts technician also has several different pliers– like needle nose pliers– that grab wires behind your thermostat. A pipe wrench allows HVAC professionals to secure natural gas and plumbing connections.
HVAC tools allow your technician to diagnose and fix the problem. A refrigeration gauge can tell if your system has enough necessary refrigerant. Special sensors locate leaks within the system. A psychrometer tool determines if the A/C unit removes optimal heat and humidity from the air circulating through the system. An anemometer measures airflow around the HVAC system, indicating whether the air exchange system is balanced and optimized.
Cleaning materials include rags, degreasers, or soap to remove built-up grime and dirt from your system. We also try to carry air filters for most units because a dirty air filter can be a culprit in many HVAC problems. When was the last time you changed your air filter?
Air Experts is ready to answer your call with around-the-clock service. When you see an Air Experts truck pull up to your home, you know it’s filled with the necessary tools to diagnose and fix your problem. When the A/C quits working, don’t sweat it for another minute.
