HVAC Technicians are vital in modern day homes and buildings. Heating and air conditioning systems control the temperature, humidity, and overall air quality in homes, businesses, and other buildings. They are typically responsible for not only the installation of HVAC systems but also their repair and maintenance.
The average day of a HVAC Tech consists of traveling to worksites, following design specifications to install and repair HVAC systems, connect systems to fuel and water supply lines and air ducts, and install electrical wiring and test for proper operation.
A career as an HVAC Technician is perfect for those who are mechanically inclined and like to work with their hands. The work they do is often varied and each day is unique. HVAC Techs work in many different settings throughout the day.
