Find the Right Training Program for Your HVAC Career Path
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are three significant points concerning a potential career in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration as an HVAC mechanic or installer:
- Job prospects nationally are expected to be excellent.
- Employment is projected to grow much faster than the average nationally.
- Employers prefer to hire those who have completed technical school training or a formal apprenticeship.
Market conditions nationally are favorable for those considering a career as an HVAC Technician. First, a growing number of retirements of highly skilled technicians are expected to generate more job openings. Second, many contractors have reported problems finding enough workers to meet the demand for service and installation of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration) systems.
With advances in technology, heating and air-conditioning and refrigeration systems require professional technicians and mechanics to control the temperature, humidity and total air quality in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers - also called technicians - install, maintain, and repair these systems. Since these systems are referred to as HVACR systems, these workers are often called HVACR technicians.
HVAC technicians work in homes, retail establishments, hospitals, office buildings, and factories —anywhere there is climate-control equipment that needs to be installed, repaired, or serviced.
