HVAC Technician Jobs

HVAC Technician Overview


HVAC technicians are professionals who work on residential and commercial HVAC systems for temperature control and air quality. HVAC technicians perform a wide array of duties. They inspect and maintain HVAC systems along with running diagnostic tests to identify the source of any issues. They also install HVAC systems according to design specifications and connect systems to water lines, fuel lines and air ducts. HVAC technicians work in factories, schools, homes, hospitals and office buildings. Some travel to several locations for daily service calls while others are assigned a specific job site for the day. The majority of HVAC technicians work full-time; however, during peak heating and cooling seasons, most perform service at irregular hours or overtime. Many technicians work for HVAC contractors, but about 10 percent are self-employed. Similar maintenance jobs include positions such as HVAC mechanics.

Educational Requirements for HVAC Technician Jobs


With HVAC systems becoming more sophisticated, most employers prefer workers with a completed apprenticeship or post-secondary education. Instruction to become an HVAC technician can be attained at community colleges, trade schools or technical schools. Programs last from six months to two years depending on whether it's a certificate program or an associate degree program.

Outlook for Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning Technician Jobs


According to statistics, HVAC technician jobs are projected to grow at a healthy rate of 21 percent through 2022. This growth rate is much higher than many other industries. The need for sophisticated climate-control systems in residential and commercial construction will fuel the job market for certified technicians. With the increased emphasis on pollution reduction and energy-efficiency, technicians will be in demand for HVAC upgrades and retrofits.

HVAC Technician Salaries


Apprentices earn about half of what experienced HVAC technicians do. As they gain skills, apprentices receive periodic raises. Statistics reveal that the average annual wage for HVAC technicians is $44,000. The lower 10 percent earn $27,000, and the upper 10 percent earn more than $68,000.
