Ensuring your HVAC system runs efficiently is a complex job. Many different factors can affect its operation. Fortunately, modern technology makes things a lot easier. A number of HVAC apps help your technician monitor the health of your system and keep it in top condition. Here are some of the most popular HVAC apps.
One of the most delicate calculations an HVAC tech has to make is determining your correct refrigerant charge. Too much or too little can damage the system, as well as waste energy. The HVAC Buddy is one of the most popular HVAC apps available, with data on more than 100 types of refrigerant. It tracks a variety of factors, including airflow and temperature, to make those calculations accurately at the touch of a button and determine the proper charge for your system.
One of the most important HVAC apps, iManifold is great for measuring performance and troubleshooting. It allows users to input system data, then it uses that data to determine issues. Furthermore, it lets technicians store and retrieve information on past equipment and past customers, including geotagging, for use in providing regular service to the same system.
HVAC Duct Sizer.
In order for your system to run efficiently, your ducts must be the proper size. The HVAC Duct Sizer app can measure your ducts in relation to your unit, as well as keep track of airflow, friction, and other factors that affect your ductwork’s efficiency. With this app, your technician can ensure that your ductwork is perfectly calculated to serve your home.
HVAC Equipment Locator.
One of the most versatile HVAC apps, the HVAC Equipment Locator is great for large buildings. It stores important information about the facility’s HVAC system, including where the unit is located, maintenance data, and more. It even allows users to share data with one another so that a new technician can have all necessary information at their fingertips, even if they’ve never serviced a particular unit before.
