Description

I wanted to build this course to give the viewer some insight into their home heating and ac system and to show them its not a hard thing to trouble shoot. That is if you have a few proper tools. I will be going over the tools needed. I will also walk you through what to look for and check and keep in mind when working around your system. People end up spending a lot of money over the years on servicing their a/c and heating unit. When I  show people what I did to get their unit up and running they shook their head and "go oh it was that easy huh". As long as you have the correct tools or know what to look for you can save money or help a family member out.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for the diy'er, someone who is ok with tools and knows how to use them.
  • Anyone looking to learn a few basics of heating and a/c should take this course. It is not meant for someone in the feild already.

Air Handler
1 Lecture 11:47

In this section you will be shown parts of the air handler and how to troubleshoot it. Certain parts may be available for purchase from large online retailers if you look around saving you from having to call out a contractor. Part numbers should be on the parts. Remember when ordering parts to order the same style part or switch. If your having a hard time finding the correct part you may have to call out a contractor. If you have an older unit parts may be obsolete.

outside unit/ condenser
1 Lecture 06:19

In this section I go over the condenser. The contactor and capacitor typically last 5 to 7 years. These parts are easily found online. Remember when replacing parts to always have the breaker turned off and any other power disconnects turned off . Fan motors may also be found online.

Capacitors
1 Lecture 06:43

A normal capacitor will only have two terminals on top, when you have this style it only goes to one motor( for example the air handler fan motor will have a single tap style). When you take a  micro farad reading with your volt meter/dvom it is only going to give you one answer. You may have a "double tap" capacitor which will have 3 terminals. It will supply the compressor and outdoor fan motor. For the compressor reading you will measure from c to herm and for the fan you will read c to fan. Those will be stamped on top of the capacitor.

I like to learn new things and know how things work

Worked in the  commercial heating and air conditioning field for 5 years, currently working in heavy equipment repair and diesel. I Like working on motorcycles in my free time. I have a few years in automotive schooling before I got into heating and air conditioning. I have rebuilt a few of my cars motors. I had fun working my first instructional video.
