It’s extremely important that air conditioning technicians understand the refrigerant cycle. It helps because they can’t actually see inside the copper tubing and compressors to see what the refrigerant is doing. The specialized tools they use help indicate what the refrigerant is doing but those tools can be misleading if other parts of the air conditioning system are not operating properly. So what’s a technician to do?
AirOne solved that problem with their Total Performance Diagnostic. Performance diagnostics starts by looking at how well a cooling system is working… compared with how well it should be performing. Refrigerant cycle properties are directly tied to the volume of air flow. They must be measured together or in relation to one another. And a 21 point inspection just doesn’t tell you enough. But a Total Performance Diagnostic does.
