Even as an apprentice technician, it’s important to have the proper HVAC tools and be familiar with all of them. The Youtube video “HVAC Tools – Basic Tools Needed for Apprentice HVAC Technicians” shows all the things you’ll need to complete the job and what you should know about them. Let’s find out more!
A lot of companies will give you a set of tools to work with, but those might only be heavy-duty. However, there are a few HVAC tools you should start collecting even as an apprentice.
Much like all cooks have their own knives, all HVAC professionals should have their own tools. You’re also going to need a personal tool bag to keep your things. There are many types of tool bags available on the market, including bags that look like suitcases with wheels for easy transportation.
If you’re just starting out, you should have a couple of decent pipe wrenches. Invest in the aluminum kind. These might be a bit more expensive, but they’re better and lighter. You should also have a meter and several storage boxes for spare screws, nails, etc.
As you determine what tools you need as an HVAC technician, don’t hesitate to ask other people in your field for advice. You can watch the rest of the video for more details about getting HVAC tools.
