Problem: We have many people and potential customers ask us to try and help troubleshoot their furnace and air conditioning systems without the use of a multimeter. In many cases, I suggest that people purchase a low-cost multimeter so they can find the problem. As we all know electricity, which is the flow of electrons in a conductor can not be seen so a multimeter is essential for troubleshooting HVAC systems. We sell multimeters on the following pages: the Fieldpiece SC260 Clamp Multimeter , The Ames Pocket-Sized Digital Multimeter Capacitor Tester, and UEi DL389B G2 Phoenix Pro Plus True-RMS AC Clamp Multimeter (With Temperature)
Solution: Purchase a good multimeter and learn how to use it. Below we have two really good YouTube videos on “How to Use a Multimeter”. The first video made by Word of Advice TV is very detailed and shows all the Multimeter functions and how to use the meter to test components on an HVAC System. The video made by AC Service Tech near the bottom shows a shorter version on how to use the Multimeter and test components. We have the G2 Phoenix Series Multimeter like what is used in the YouTube Videos for sale on the following page: UEi DL389B G2 Phoenix Pro Plus True-RMS AC Clamp Multimeter (With Temperature) We hope these two videos help you to learn how to use a Multimeter. Thanks so very much to Word of Advice TV and AC Service Tech for making these two informative videos! I you have any questions please let us know by commenting below or emailing us.
