When looking at prospective jobs, you debate whether or not it is a smart career move and consider quality traits like job security, growth, and long-term stability in the industry. The great aspect of the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) field is that it has the potential to be needed throughout the year, in multiple weather conditions. Hot weather calls for air conditioning, cold weather necessitates heating and in-door commercial businesses use HVAC services all year long to keep their employees and customer comfortable. What does this mean for you? It means that qualified HVAC technicians may be needed throughout the seasons and could offer job stability.
Based on the national average income for HVAC from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an HVAC Technician can earn an average wage anywhere between $30,000 to over $70,000. Many of the responsibilities of an HVAC Technician will include examining equipment, diagnosing and troubleshooting the issue. Once the technician discovers what the issue is, he/she will provide a repair quote and work to repair or replace the mechanical components or wiring concerns. A HVAC technician should have proper certification or an associate’s degree from an accredited HVAC school.
