The HVAC industry is growing at a steady pace, and the need for trained technicians is too. If you’re looking for a change, consider a career in HVAC with Allied Air Conditioning & Heating Corp. A career in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration is lucrative, stimulating, and always in demand. Here are some of the reasons why you should pursue a career in HVAC.
The job outlook is good. Qualified HVAC technicians make $45k-$90k per year, and with baby boomers retiring, there is a need for young people to work in skilled trades. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, the job outlook for HVAC mechanics and installers is rising much faster than average. The projected percent change in employment from now through 2028 is 13%, which is almost three times the average growth rate for all other occupations. With this kind of growth, HVAC technicians can expect many opportunities. In addition, a career in HVAC includes job stability. People need heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, so there is work to be had year-round.
One big draw to seeking a career in HVAC is that you don’t have to be in an office all day. Being at a desk in front of a computer all day is not for everyone, and research suggests that sitting too much throughout the day can be harmful. Having an on-site job gets you up and keeps you moving, and the variety in service calls keeps you on your toes. HVAC technicians are problem solvers, looking at each service call as a new puzzle to figure out.
HVAC technicians provide support in a variety of ways. There are many different avenues you can pursue, including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems for not only residential homes but also for businesses, schools, hospitals, and corporate offices buildings.
Technology is always changing, and skilled HVAC technicians are always in high demand. New systems, products, and regulations will require technicians to have advanced skills. Ongoing training and education are necessary to stay current with smarter technology, so HVAC professionals must be willing to stay current and adapt. Not only will we need skilled technicians to keep up to date with the latest technologies, but we’ll need knowledgeable builders and installers to modernize old processes, change out old products, and provide regular maintenance and repair services. As technology advances, it becomes more apparent that a career in HVAC will be in demand for many years to come.
