Careers in the HVAC Industry

June 1, 2019

A career in the HVAC industry continues to be a good option for hardworking people who have an aptitude for mechanical work and want to minimize the cost of education. Many technical colleges today offer degrees in HVAC services that teach you how to repair, maintain, and install heating and cooling equipment.

Is a Career in HVAC Right for You?

What kind of person excels in the HVAC industry? Here are a few traits that might indicate this career will be a match for you. A good candidate should:

  • Enjoy problem-solving
  • Like working outdoors
  • Desire variety in day-to-day tasks
  • Excel at troubleshooting machines
  • Possess excellent customer service skills

HVAC is a field for problem-solvers who like providing essential expertise to their customers every day. When you restore a customer’s air conditioning during a heat wave, you know you’ve helped make someone’s life better.

You can also expect to spend most of your time out of the office. You’ll get to work at a variety of locations throughout our service area. Usually, work is done indoors at a customer’s site, but the equipment is often outdoors.

The Skills for Success in HVAC

If you have a knack for understanding how machines work and how to fix them, then HVAC is a great industry to consider. Working with HVAC systems involves diagnosing and repairing mechanical systems such as heat pumps, air blowers, and refrigeration units. Knowledge of AC and electric circuits, along with energy sources such as natural gas, is a plus.

You’ll get to install HVAC systems of all sizes. Some installations involve large ventilation ductwork at construction sites, while others are simpler jobs such as replacing a furnace or AC unit at a customer’s home.
