  • Testers

    Could someone point me in the direction of a great voltage tester and a continuity tester for diagnosing of heating systems?

    Re: Testers

    I have a Fluke (its so old cant find model)
    Also have Amprobe brand
    Both have been good meters,although the Fluke will check capacitance as well.

      I have the DL369, I didn't need the temperature probe because I have a clamp on thermometer.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        Mostly have Fluke stuff now and a couple of reliable Sperry analog's just in case but for HVAC work I really like Fluke's stuff

          my CO meter is Fluke, but I hadn't made the leap to fluke volt meters yet.

            -15 or -20 deg f

            i live in indiana. my fluke #12 just died.it lasted a lot of years. getting afluke #113. do you leave your meter in an unheated truck or building? if so you might want to check for the "storage temp" not the "operating temp". #113 is good for -22 deg f. flukes have by far the best low temp storage temp that i could find. before #12 i would go through a few every winter. i leave mine in an unheated truck at night. just a thought. breid..............

                I always wondered if this was a good one/idea.

                  storage temp is-4 deg f on uei dl250 spec sheet. you are about the temps as us. do you leave it in the cold? i just read the specs. breid...............

                            I use a Fluke and Amprobe brand. Only had to change the battery once because I forgot to turn it off.

                              Fluke and Amprobe here too. I love the capacitance tester.
