Videos To Download

Well, it’s been a while in coming, and the selection isn’t complete, but it’s a good start…Now you can download to rent or own, shorter versions of the DVD’s. I’ve taken the “Troubleshooting Heat Pump Electrical Systems” DVD, and divided it into 20-30ish minute sections that are available to rent for a couple of bucks or buy for $10. The download service is provided through Amazon.Com “Video On Demand”.

There are five downloads to choose from:

#1. Review of electrical wiring and operation #2. Troubleshooting open control voltage circuits #3. Troubleshooting control voltage short circuits and defrost controls #4. Troubleshooting air handler controls, reversing valves and contactors #5. Troubleshooting fan, blower and compressor motors, capacitors, condenser high voltage problems

When you click on the link below, you’ll get to the Amazon page where the available downloads are listed. You can get a free 2 minute preview, after which you make the decision whether or not to download the rental. Keep in mind, the process will only work effectively with high speed internet connections. Also keep in mind, once you get to the Amazon site, you’re playing by their rules…I have no control whatsoever over the site mechanics, prices or payment methods. It is simply an effort on my part to provide another purchasing option for the heat pump video training material.
