Here are some top reasons why you should consider an HVAC career:

In High Demand

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the job outlook for Heating, Air Conditioning, and Ventilation technicians is growing much faster than average. Between 2010 and 2020 the BLS estimates that there will be 34% growth in the field and an employment change of 90,300. The outlook is even better for technicians who have completed a rigorous training at an accredited heating and air conditioning school. The rising demand for highly trained HVAC professionals will continue to increase the employment opportunities nationwide.” (CBT.edu)

Widely Needed

“The HVAC industry isn’t a regional field and technicians are needed nationwide. Regardless of where a graduate hopes to live there will be a need for certified and highly trained HVAC technicians. This also allows technicians to become even more specialized because of the differences in regional climates. The HVAC needs of the southern states may focus on the installation and maintenance of efficient air conditioning systems while the northeast states place more emphasis on ensuring heating systems are operating properly in advance of the cold seasons.” (CBT.edu)

Recession Proof

“The last several years have proven that when a recession hits it can have a serious impact on a range of industries. The HVAC field has proven to be fairly recession proof. Since every residence and every business has some type of HVAC system there will always be a market for routine maintenance and repairs. No home or business owner wants to go without a properly working system. Additionally, as HVAC systems age they inevitably need to be replaced. The lifespan of an HVAC system is, on average, about ten years. This is true regardless of the state of the economy.” (CBT.edu)
