Learn the basics of navigating the home tab of the mQ HVAC app.
Navigating the mQ home screen
Hover over the image and click on the icons to learn more.
User information Tab
In this tab, the user can upload a company logo, check permissions (this is important if the user is a part of an energy commission or if mQ has a dedicated workflow for the user), logout, view which version of the app is being used, shop for supported tools, view the website, or view mQ attributions.
Change units of measure, toggle general app settings or apply Demo Data under the Settings option.
Tap here to change refrigerant type. Once selected, the chosen option will appear on the home page as well as under System Info.
One of the best and most utilized feature of measureQuick.
The diagnostics show what may be wrong with the system. Flags can be cleared by the user after a determination is made whether an issue exists.
The number next to the flag is a "symptom of" the fault displayed. In this case, there are 5 symptoms of key data points missing for diagnostics. The technician is to perform a visual inspection and other tests to determine what the fault actually is.
The System Configurations tabs allow the technician to easily change critical information about the system. The picture is an example of the design airflow target.
These targets can also be changed in the System Info Tab.
Test Mode Selection
This screen will allow the user to toggle between test modes. Once selected, the image on the home screen will reflect the mode the technician is currently using and the title of the test will match as well.
Under the Outdoor Measurements, the user can view any of the system targets (suction line, superheat, subcooling and liquid line) by tapping on the illustrated meter.
Just like the Outdoor Measurement screen, the user can view system targets by tapping on the illustrated meters. Scroll over the illustrated meters to find additional targets for change in enthalpy, airflow, change in temp split and pounds/hour dehumidified. Under the Indoor Measurements button, the user can view actual data that is being pulled in by any wireless probes. The icon next to the data displays if the data is coming in from a probe or if it is being calculated by the app itself. If there is a blank box, the user can manually add data. After all data is entered, the screen can then be captured in a snapshot for submitting reports.
Scroll through to find EER, SEER, TESP and Fan Efficacy.
User can enter data manually without wireless probes hooked up. All data is logged as either manual or automatic (from probes) and will show on the final report.
Weather conditions are used to correct the temperature pressure charts for elevation, and to assure that the test conditions are within the guidelines of the program requirements. Weather information is pulled from nearby weather stations
This feature will be used when the user wants to share their live feed with another user, either another tech in the field or with the home office.
When the technician has the system operating at its optimal point, they Benchmark the system. Which means they set an updated standard for system operation that can be saved, exported or uploaded to the cloud for next-time use.
Trending & System Vitals Mode
Tap the trending button once and you will find graphic data. Trending allows the user to see a visual representation of the system operation over time to verify stability or trends like TXV hunting that could indicate other system wide issues.
Tap the trending button twice and the user will have the System Vitals (as seen in the picture) screen. In this screen, the user has the basic yet essential information to service a system. It's the simpler, friendlier version of it's big brother- the home screen. In this mode, there are basic instructions for the technician to follow... add/remove refrigerant or change airflow. For those that just want to get in, get out and move on.

Find all saved reports here. They can be opened back up at anytime for continued use. Do not start a new projects from the Results tab.
Each project workflow is designed to complete specific project requirements in a specific order and should not be deviated from or/and added to.
Add BlueTooth tools to your Toolbox, connect to Data Sharing Tools or even shop for "works with measureQuick" tools here. Once tools are linked to your toolbox and are mapped to their appropriate locations, they will remain there for future use until deleted or remapped.
