The HVAC industry is a growing, progressive industry that has never slowed down. Both installing new systems and fixing or replacing older systems require a trained, expert technician onsite. 

Since there is constant flux in the HVAC industry, regulations are always changing, so environmental updates are needed — the technician once again to the rescue!

The technician is the superhero when the HVAC system stops working, whether it’s the heating, ventilation, or air conditioning. Who hasn’t had the air conditioning not work on the hottest day of the year? It has happened to all of us. 

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, green energy and the industries that support energy-efficient systems are on the rise and have a lucrative future ahead.

The HVAC sector is an excellent place for women to enter, as it is an equal opportunity industry.  What is important to customers is a skilled technician who can fix, install, or maintain their equipment and provide courteous customer service, regardless of their gender.

Each time the technology changes, a new system must be built. Guess who comes to the rescue? The technician! That’s just from the technician’s point of view; if you have a propensity for technology on a higher level, you could build your own new units.

The smarter the systems are, the more skilled the technicians are required to be. There is a sub-sector in the HVAC industry that deals with process chillers. Chillers are used in many industries, but are especially useful within food and beverage and the medical sectors. The chiller will remove heat and place it in another location, usually outside of the facility.

Understanding process chillers requires special training, as chillers are built and operate differently than other cooling units. Learn more about our Process Chiller Academy!

Those who choose to make their career in the HVAC industry must continue to learn since education is imperative to keep up with the latest advances in the field. This is an exciting time for the future of HVAC!
