High Quality HVAC Hand Tools!
The right tools make any just easier, and every industry has its unique entries. Two classes of vital HVAC hand tools can be found right here on this page!
Many HVAC service wrenches are square drive ratcheting box wrenches, ranging from ¼” to ⅜” and can be used for a wide range of applications, including:
● Accessing multiposition service valves
● Opening residential service valves
● Adjusting a TXV Superheat
● Adjusting acetylene torch tanks
● Adjusting other square valve stems (particularly refrigerant valves)
Specialized tools like these are ideal for the above applications: remember, adjustable wrenches should never be used to adjust service valves or to modulate a TXV Superheat. Only an appropriately sized service wrench should be used for the job.
The right tools are safer to use and prevent damage to vales!
Copper and Tubing Cutters
HVAC technicians should carry at least two copper or tubing cutters: one for smaller diameter pipes and tubes and another for those with larger diameters.
These tools may seem overspecialized, but they enable quick, precise cuts to be made to pipes and tubing without damaging them. These tools also cut through pipes and tubes without creating rough edges or burrs that could cause fitment or system issues.
HVAC technicians are also encouraged to carry along additional tools including but not limited to a set of combination wrenches, a utility knife, an inspection mirror, hex keys, an Allen wrench, a tape measure, and any necessary power tools, such as a cordless drill.
