Well Hello, Im Diego and I don't post much but I read every once in a while. I'm trying to learn more about the service side of HVAC. I currently work for a company out of Northern California and I install "heats" on a tract homes. I get a lot of side jobs doing installs and until my last one everything went great.
My last side job I got a 3 ton package unit with a frozen blower motor. I took out the motor and replaced it. But, I need more knowledge about how to service and trouble shoot a FAU. If I am to continue doing side jobs I need to know how to fix or maintain what I'm installing, right?
That said I have a few questions.
What is a good multi-meter to buy?
- I have heard about Fluke being the best, but they're awful expensive. I really want the 87 III Fluke Multi.
But for now what do you recommend for me to start with?
I want to buy a book about Heating and Air Conditioning systems and the Refrigeration Cycle, that explains the process the freon goes through and also how everything works inside the Unit (Example; Capacitor; Transformer; Zone Board; Hot Surface Ignitor)
What do you guys recommend and where can I buy this book?
For now thats all the questions, but I expect to learn alot from you guys.
