Most companies require HVAC technicians to keep protective equipment in their vans/trucks at all times such as gloves, goggles, hard hats, first aid kits, and knee pads.
I’ve gone for a lot of car rides recently and I’ve noticed many HVAC vans and trucks driving on the roads. I can tell that they are HVAC vans right away because the name of the company is painted on the side of the van and sometimes the phone number as well for advertising. It makes sense that I see a lot of HVAC vans where I live because it is the summer and it’s very hot and humid outside so many people need to fix or install air conditioning in their homes or businesses. After seeing so many HVAC vans, I decided to do some research on what tools are inside of them. Through my research I found out that HVAC companies take pride in the organization of their company vans or trucks because multiple HVAC technicians use the same van or truck. To keep up with vans/trucks, many companies require weekly cleaning, inventory checklists, and tire pressure checks. Most companies require HVAC technicians to keep protective equipment in their vans/trucks at all times such as gloves, goggles, hard hats, first aid kits, and knee pads. Some HVAC tools that are kept in vans/ trucks are leak detectors, vacuum gauges, refrigerant scales, recovery machines and more. There will also most likely be ladders, flashlights, extension cords, and levels in the vans and trucks. It’s essential that HVAC companies provide their technicians with working vehicles so they can travel to their customers safely. It’s also important that the HVAC companies make sure HVAC technicians have all of the tools, equipment and protective gear they need to be successful and help others with their heating, cooling and refrigeration needs.
