Basic HVAC Electricity – Section 1: Foundations

This is a 4 section course that will provide a basic understanding of electricity as it relates to the HVAC industry.

The layout for each lesson is to:

  • Describe the electrical item we are going over and what it does
  • Show how it applies to the HVAC industry
  • Outline how to troubleshoot the component
  • Identify the symbol on an electrical diagram
  • Explain how to read an electrical diagram.

This course is applicable for new technicians, as well as experienced ones. In addition, it can become a foundational training tool in communication and problem solving within the whole department, as everyone is now on the same page.

By the end of all 4 sections, there should be a good understanding of HVAC electrical items, and the ability to test the basic HVAC electrical circuits.

Section 1: Foundations – 5 lessons, ranging in length from 10 – 36 min

Section 2: Common Components – 7 lessons, ranging in length from 20 – 40 min
