Anyone who works in the HVAC industry knows the importance of efficiency, punctuality and precision. As creators of popular HVAC estimating software, we know that having the right tools for the job can make a world of difference. The nice thing about working in 2015 is that one of the most powerful tools available to us is something that is always with us: the smartphone. It’s amazing how many different free HVAC apps for Android are available to improve your business and day to day job performance with relatively little effort. So instead of just working longer hours, try working smarter with these apps that may make your life a little easier.
The Refrigerant Slider is an essential tool built specifically for HVACR professionals and gives you access to a user-friendly, quick pressure-to-temperature refrigerant converter. It covers over 69 different refrigerants including information on various types. The app uses Antoine equations to produce results for things like Global Warming Potential and Ozone Depleting Potential. The UI is simple, straight-forward and extremely functional.
The HVAC Check & Charge app provides an on-site refrigerant charge calculator for air conditioning applications. This free HVAC app allows contractors to easily calculate correct system refrigerant charge for R-22 or R-410A. Users can choose between three settings: subcooling, superheat or airflow and from there get results from the proper system conditions which will determine if the system needs to be tweaked. The results are instant and consistent, freeing up more time for contractors.
This is one of our favorite HVAC apps for Android as this calculator is an all-in-one design that helps engineers, designers, technicians and maintenance workers of several industries calculate things like relative humidity, vapor pressure, wet bulb temperature and more
While this app may prove handy in other aspects of your life as well (even when it comes to cooking), it’s an extremely powerful and handy app when it comes to making unit conversions. Among the 90 available categories, you can make conversions between 1200 separate units including a wide range of conversions for electric and heat.
