To give you a little background about myself I just acquired a job as an HVAC tech for a very credible company in south Florida, I start in a couple of weeks. I have worked apartment maintenance for over 3 years and have also had the EPA 608 type 1 and 2 for that time, but as apartment maintenance tech, HVAC is only about 1/3 of the calls, rest are mostly plumbing.
So I have been dealing with the same systems and same problems for years now and have the tools to fix the problems in most cases, but being on my own I am starting to go shopping for some ac tools that I might need, any good recomendations on where to purchase these tools would be great as I will be entering the HVAC service tech field in the middle of June.
What kind of clamp on multi meter should I buy?
pvc cutting tools?
gallo gun or nitrogen tank?
what do you use to find leaks on central air units?
any other tools that you use on a daily basis that I should invest in?
I know I will learn as I go but I want to be prepared and not look like a total idiot when I start the job in a couple of weeks...
