Diagnosing An HVAC System With A Universal Tool

Posted on January 14, 2015
by Susana Escamilla

Evaluating a HVAC system if it is in a good working condition can be a tedious process. There are several components that must be checked to successfully diagnose an HVAC system.

New technology is always presented for the industry to used and there might be a system that can be used universally to diagnose a system that can correct situations faster. Just like the automotive industry, in order for this system to develop into the industry, standarized commmunication protocols must be done.

There Are Several Advantages and Disadvantages Towards a Universal Diagnostic HVAC System:


  • Technicians may be more reliant on the tool and miss other problems not picked by the tool.
  • Service technicians may think they do not need any training because they can rely on the new tool.
  • Cost of the tool.
  • Training time in order to train technicians to use this tool.
  • If the system does not work properly, the outcome may hinder the brand name and reputation of company.


  • Trained technicians and contractors can identify and correct situations faster.
  • Spend more time and money in other areas of their company (branding, marketing, improving customer service)
  • The HVAC system Industry will stay up to date with all technology to better assist their clients.
  • System works properly contractors can monitor the system and determine what is wrong.
  • Overall, if the system is successful the system can be used with a variety of systems.

It is an idea that can happen in the future and a lot of work must be done in order to create a universal tool that can be used to diagnose an HVAC system. A system that will work accurately and provide correct results that can help professionals, companies and customers.
