The HVAC Technician's Toolbox

When something goes wrong with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to call a technician. However, we know that sometimes homeowners like to take matters into their own hands. So if you plan to fix small repairs on your own, we’d like to help you prepare.

The first step towards preparing to troubleshoot your HVAC system means doing some research and knowing how every part of your units work. The second step is to wear protective gear – jeans, protective glasses, gloves, and boots. To create a professional toolbox, you will need a few pro instruments, including the following:
