HVAC Technician Christmas Gift Guide
HVAC Technicians like gifts too! Whether you are a small heating and cooling business looking for a way to reward your best employees, or a friend or spouse of an HVAC technician. Knowing the right gift to buy them as Christmas time, well, just makes all the difference in the world! As we all know having the right tools makes any job a bunch easier! You can imagine how hard it is for a heating repair person to climb in and out of an attic or crawlspace when they didn’t have the right tools with them.
In this Gas Furnace Guide article we are going to look at some of the most common gifts an HVAC technician would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning!

A Mid-Large Sized Toolbag – Cost: $30-$50
I’m not gonna say the bag makes all the difference, but it really does! If your toolbag only carries a few screwdrivers and pliers, what are you gonna do when you have to climb onto a roof to service a piece of equipment?

Nutdriver Set, Standard and Metric – $15-$35
No matter what anyone says… you can always use two sets of Nutdrivers! For those who are unaware, a Nutdriver looks like a screwdriver, but has a small socket head on the end versus a tip for screws! The most important sized to an HVAC tech are: 1/4″, 5/16″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 9/16″, 5/8″ Standard, and 8-15mm Metric.
Mechanix Wear Gloves – $10-$30
I never thought I would (or could) wear gloves to work with small screws an in confined areas. After having a pair of high quality Mechanix Wear gloves though… I will never look back! I still prefer the Mechanix Wear MG-05 Original gloves since they feel like an extra layer of skin, and don’t get in the way of working! Mechanix Wear MG-05′s at Amazon ($13-$16)
