    Question

    Looking for generic PM procedures for commercial HVAC equipment. Anybody know of an internet site that would have procedures for equipment in commercial buildings available at no cost? Using a PM program called Mainsaver and would like to attach generic procedures to the equipment PMs.

    Are you asking for "what to check" or "how to check"?

    Looking for a generic checklist of what to check. To make sure nothing is missed while doing PMs on a piece of equipment.

    Commercial office buildings. Equipment like AHUs, return fans, pumps, exhausts, unit ventilators, unit heaters, etc. With specialty equipment like a Liebert unit or a package chiller for example, we will be using the mfg. manual as reference.

    Wonder Boy: There are other refrigerant manufacturers besides Dupont Corporation. Do you charge with Freon if the system requires R-134a?

    This amazon link takes you to a book that covers all the categories. Includes three good reviews.

    Thanks for the link to RHVACTools. This link is a good asset to be aware of.

    I'm a part-time refer instructor and I jump on anyone that calls refrigerant Freon, especially with the so called environmently friendly refrigerants called SUVA, etc.

    From an instructor's standpoint, I know exactly what you're stating with your comment. Parts changing troubleshooting is another problem in this field.

    Didn't mean to offend. Just my poor sense of humor.
