  4. Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps are indispensable for evacuating air and moisture from the A/C system before refrigerant recharge.
  5. Thermometers and Infrared Scanners: Thermometers and infrared scanners enable technicians to assess temperature differentials and identify hot or cold spots in the system.
  6. Tube Benders and Cutters: To shape and size refrigerant lines accurately, A/C companies make use of tools like tube benders and cutters.
  7. Hand Tools: Various hand tools such as wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, and crimping tools are essential for general maintenance, repairs, and installation tasks.
  8. Electric and Cordless Power Tools: Power tools like drills, saws, and impact drivers speed up installation and maintenance processes, saving time and effort.
  9. Combustion Analyzers: For heating and combustion system inspections, combustion analyzers are crucial. They measure oxygen and carbon dioxide levels to ensure safe and efficient operation.
  10. Refrigerant Scales: Accurate measurement of refrigerant quantities is essential for maintaining system efficiency and complying with regulations.
