While it may seem bizarre to some of the younger tradespeople out there, those of us who have been in the HVAC industry for a number of years remember the days of analogue measuring tools. Complicated connections, unreliable results and cumbersome equipment were the norm. Even more surprising, there are likely to be a number of professionals still using this outdated technology.
We know that giving up on a familiar, tried-and-tested tool can be difficult, but for the efficiency and accuracy your customers deserve, making the transition to the digital age is essential. For HVAC technicians, the testo Smart Refrigeration Set is a great place to start.
Convenience without compromise
Given the complexity of modern HVAC equipment, you'd be forgiven for thinking that new tools for service and maintenance would be equally complicated. In many cases, however, the opposite is true – innovation has streamlined and simplified measuring devices, making them more intuitive and adaptable.
The testo Smart Refrigeration Set, for example, features hose-free installation on refrigeration systems, making for a much more portable solution. Complete with two testo 115i Smart Clamp Meters and two testo 549i Smart Pressure Meters, the set has everything an HVAC professional needs to measure CFC, HFC, HCFC, N, H2O and CO2.

Well, almost everything.
Measurement reading on your smart device
You may take a look at everything included in the testo Smart Refrigeration Set and think there's something missing – a means of reading your measurements. That's where the 'Smart' aspect comes in: Rather then needing to consult the equipment itself for readings, all the information is beamed to your mobile phone or tablet via Bluetooth.
Taking advantage of the technology that most of us are already carrying in our pockets at all times, Testo has been able to simplify the core equipment to its most important elements – namely, taking accurate measurements. Connecting wirelessly to the app allows much greater flexibility for technicians, meaning they are no longer chained to archaic, often-inaccurate measurement tools.
With the testo Smart Refrigeration Set – all conveniently packaged in the included Smart Case – and your mobile device of choice, conducting tests and maintenance on refrigeration equipment is easier than ever. Gone are the days of excessive hose connections and making a best estimate based on inaccurate dials – with Testo, your measurements have just gotten smarter.
