Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect HVAC Multimeter for the Professional and Student Technician AMPROBE AM-520 HVAC METERThis HVAC multimeter is now my first choice for a troubleshooting meter. I have been using several types of meters, for my HVAC troubleshooting calls, and now I’ve returned to the Amprobe brand. I have worked in the HVAC / Electrical trade for almost 30 years, as a field technician, and using electrical meters is required in my daily job duties. I am a HVAC / Electrical Service Instructor, at the Union, so buying and using digital multimeters is a very important part of my career and job.Pros:The price is excellent, the combined functions of this meter are superior to other manufacturers on the market.The built in strap bracket on the top of the meter makes it easy to hang with the included Velcro strapping.The selection dial is easy to read with clear selection points.Display light is clear white and lights up the entire display.I found the display easy to understand with large numbers to read in tight locations.The LED work light, on the top of the multimeter, is great when you are trying to see into a dark HVAC unit or ceiling.I love the capacitance checking capability and the ability to check temperatures with one multimeter.The micro-amp setting allows you to test flame sensors for heating troubleshooting calls.The non-contact voltage detection is a great feature, and helps you troubleshoot with one meter.Cons:The non-contact voltage detector does not measure low voltage control voltages below 90V-AC.The piercing tips on the test leads don’t pierce the wiring insulation.I found the hold button is a little awkward to use on the front of the meter.The display light only stays on for 25 seconds, this time a little short for most troubleshooting.I would like to have had a Type K thermocouple plug on the front of the meter and not the, large plug, Type K thermocouple adaptor.
