    Got an APP idea someone should make

    Make an APP that gives you filter sizes for all roof top units. Give make model and gives you specs of the unit.

    Do any manufactures have this? They have all the specs just gotta design it.

    What you guys think?

    I think that would be a great idea. I am sure the database would be huge! While they are at it they can add belt sizes.

    You've got to be on the roof to get the RTU information anyway.

    Get the filter sizes while you're there and be done with it.

    Most customers that I've dealt with couldn't even tell you what brand of RTUs that they have, let alone what size or age they are...

    I still think this app would be very useful. That's like saying why do you need a truck stock app just go look in the back of the van. Why use a calculator? Just do it on paper with a pencil. I know I can go onto the roof and look but this app would save time just get serial# and model# then you get all the unit info at your fingers tips wire diagrams that go missing and burnt etc.

    Still think this app is a time saver

    How will you get the model and serial number?

    Use Google Earth and zoom in real close.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    We have paper forms to fill out. I scribble on one, then fill out the document and e-mail it into the office.

    I'm not a huge fan of dragging my laptop out onto the roof...

    LOL. I guess he doesn't get the point?

    Maybe he should invent an app that will hold all that information so the SECOND time he services that customer, he won't need to get on the roof to find the info.

    I take pics with my phone as opposed to writing the info down. I enter them into the company database before I leave the site. The days of writing every model and serial on invoices is over . . Especially because I don't write anything . . We are paperless
