At Tri-Tech Energy we are obviously passionate about the HVAC industry, and if you’re curious about what kind of career you can have as an HVAC technician, we’re here to share what we know. Here are just some of the great things about becoming an HVAC technician.
You Can Go Work Anywhere
If you’re looking for a career that offers geographic flexibility, becoming an HVAC technician will give you exactly that. When you do a quick search for HVAC jobs in several different cities around the country, you’ll see that HVAC technicians are in demand in every state, because almost everyone has heating and cooling systems that need to be installed, repaired, and maintained.
So if you’d like to try living in the beautiful mountains of Northern California for a few years, then perhaps traveling down to the sunny beaches of South Carolina, you won’t have any trouble finding employment as an HVAC technician.
You’ll Always Have Work
Job security is important. You want to know that if you study for something and work towards a certain career, you’ll have employment options when the time comes. You’ll be happy to know that HVAC technicians are in high demand, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment growth in the HVAC industry is a whopping 15%.
Additionally, nearly all homes and businesses have HVAC systems, and advances in technology require HVAC technicians to install and upgrade these commercial heating and cooling systems. All industries require the expertise of a skilled HVAC technician, such as government agencies, hospitals, data centers, college campuses and shopping malls.
You Positively Influence The Environment
As an HVAC technician your primary role will be to improve the efficiency of HVAC systems, which in turn results in positive environmental impacts. Some examples of this include installing energy-saving thermostats, dehumidifiers, and heat pumps that reduce carbon emissions. You’ll also have opportunities to recommend and install more energy-efficient HVAC systems in both residential and commercial buildings, helping hundreds of people reduce their environmental footprints. Even seemingly small features of an HVAC system, like temperature sensors and timed heating can make a big difference.
You Train And Earn At The Same Time
There’s only so much you can learn in a classroom, and the bulk of an HVAC technician’s education takes place in the field and on the clock. People training to be HVAC technicians receive extensive on-the-job training, especially when they’re just starting out, and this is paid time.
We recommend you acquire as many skills as possible when you’re an entry-level HVAC technician. You’ll find that within a short time, you’ll be paid almost as much as other trained technicians, and the more skilled you become the higher your pay will be. Be proactive in asking for diverse opportunities that allow you to learn new skills, stick with it, and be persistent. We know it’ll be worth it in the end.
