In the past 10 years or so, we have become increasingly more dependent on our modern technology. This is particularly true for smartphones. Quickly to follow the smartphone was the app, a self-contained piece of software or program designed to fulfill a particular purpose within the phone or other electronic device.
More and more businesses have begun to rely on the new technology in order to help their business thrive. Specifically, contractors are now considering spending less time teaching employees about their products and more time showing them where they can find the answers they need. Here, we look at the top 5 apps your HVAC technician needs to do his or her job to the best of their ability:
HVAC Buddy Load Calc
This app helps both salespeople and technicians in the field ensure a more accurate sizing of equipment. Available for both Apple and Android, the app also helps to generate project reports.

This popular app performs simple duct sizing. It works by minimum and maximum friction loss and airflow values and then communicating a range of duct sizes to the technician.
