2.5.0 Release notes

Released October 2023.

New Guided Workflows

These are step-by-step guidance on what to do next and keep you focused. We listened to the features you requested and spent the last 6 months redesigning the interface to simplify our workflows. measureQuick 2.0 is still the same and you can exit the Guided Workflow and go to 2.0. All your measurements are captured in all workflows.

IMPORTANT: There are some major differences in the Guided Workflows for Install vs. Service

Differences in the new Guided Workflow Install vs. Service

      Install is now a single Test Out at the end.
  1. Start with Indoor measurements and data then complete the Outdoor measurements and data,
  2. Test the system: Diagnostics, Electrical measurements (required, direct capture or enter manually), and Benchmark are  ALL FREE
  3. Unlock Premier services to see the Vitals Score, Stream your live measurements, generate the final report and save everything to mQ Cloud and access it for free for a 1 year.
      Service is similar to the original 2.0 workflows, Vitals Score Test In and Test Out at the end.
  1. Start with Indoor measurements and data then complete the Outdoor measurements and data,
  2. Test the system: Diagnostics, Electrical measurements (not required), and Generate the Vitals Report (no score) are ALL FREE     
  3. Then confirm if you are continuing with the repairs OR Not.
  4. If continuing, Unlock Premier services to see Vitals Score continue with repairs, Benchmark, Save Test and generate the Pro report and save everything to mQ Cloud and access it for free for a 1 year.
  5. If the client chooses Not to perform the repairs, there are no repairs or it’s a maintenance visit then generate the Pro report and exit.

Update on Electrical Meters

We improved how the meters auto connect to the app when needing to take measurements.  
  1. Once the meter is mapped in the toolbox mQ it auto connects – the meter must be ON. We remind you to turn it on just before needing it. 
  2. We now capture ONLY the Evaporator or Condenser measurements depending on where you are in the workflow (indoors or outdoors).
  3. The Install Guided Workflow requires electrical measurements (direct capture or enter manually)
  4. The Service Guided Workflow does Not require any electrical measurements. We highly recommend capturing the measurements – it’s used to calculate SEER, EER and fan watt draw of the system.
  5. This is cool, the +Plus Button has a Lightening Bolt that allows direct access to the full electrical section anytime! 
  6. NOTICE: Once the test is Saved, the Outdoor measurements are cleared. They are saved for the report, but if you continue with diagnostics and repairs, the outdoor measurements will need to captured again. This only effects the outdoor measurements.

  2. You can pre-populate fields for ACCA VSP (Coming soon!) Certificates in mQ Cloud before starting projects

Other Updates & Improvements

  1. Better capacity calculations and a better estimated airflow with minor corrections for duct gain in unconditioned attic spaces. 
  2. SEER/SEER2 selections for profiling and approximate system performance calculations normalized to AHRI design conditions
  3. Plot bands for trending show you the current values and the acceptable range for each measurement. 
  4. Extended trending times for system troubleshooting and diagnostics. 
  5. Testo 915i convertible thermocouple support allows for a host of new mappings for precise temperature measurement in a variety of applications.
