In this episode of HVAC School, Bryan covers the "5 pillars of refrigerant circuit diagnosis" and why they matter. They are:

  • Superheat
  • Subcool
  • Suction pressure
  • Head pressure
  • Air temp split (delta T)

These 5 readings give you a holistic idea of the A/C system. Instead of getting hooked on checking only superheat and...

In this episode of HVAC School, Bryan talks to his sons about basic electrical theory.

Electrical theory normally requires trigonometry, calculus, and all of those fun maths. However, the basics are so easy that a 12 and 14-year old can figure it out. Electrical theory follows many of the same principles as...

In this episode of HVAC School, we discuss the entire basic refrigerant/compression refrigeration circuit.

We are in the business of moving heat. Heat refers to motion in the molecules. Temperature is the average velocity of those molecules. Heat needs a temperature differential to move. So, HVAC systems absorb heat...
