    Any useful apps for Hvac/r???

    With how advanced technology is today, are there any useful apps to help a technician?

    Hvac buddy, 9.99 it does superheat subcooling and airflow (required td based on return wet and dry bulb). They also have a duct calculator app made by the same company. I believe they also recently came out with a load calculation app but I haven't tried that one yet.

    I use the residential load calc ($49.99) and it's great. Easy to input data and spits out an HTML report you cn email right from the iPad to yourself and/or the customer. There's a Johnstone toolkit that helps you size cap tubes amonst other stuff,(free) a Copeland X-ref which sux most of the time but when it does find a compressor,it gives good info on it. The Tecumseh compressor app is better (both are free).
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    The Educational Forums has a very good listing of apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry.

    Here's a thread which has some discussion along with links...although you'll need to get your post count up and apply for Professional membership to access them.

    HVAC buddy also has a PT app that is nice. Almost any refrigerant can be found on it.

    My newest purchase is "Truck Stock". It takes a little set up but has really helped me with stocking and more importantly restocking my parts. also use HVAC buddy, but I have not sent a customer email with it yet. I am not sure they want one.
