Why is HVAC the best trade?

In the United States, roughly 87% of the country has air conditioning. This number doesn’t even include furnaces or other ventilation needs. Beginning a career as an HVAC technician is a smart move for more reasons than one. There are many professions to choose from however, let’s talk about why HVAC is the best trade.

It pays well
First things first. HVAC technician careers are a good source of steady, well-earned money. In fact, all of the trades are expected to see record growth not only in opportunity but wages in the coming years.  

Relatively short training period
Hands-on training and practical education are vital to beginning your career as an HVAC technician. Depending on the path you want to take or how quickly you want to get started, there is a career path for you. 

Most certification programs take roughly a year to complete while an associate’s degree will run two years. Additional training should be viewed as essential as well to furthering your knowledge in the trade.

Growing job market
According to recent statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for HVAC technicians will grow by 4% in the next 10 years. 
Have you considered that heating and cooling are absolute home essentials? And as such, working in the HVAC industry provides (and will continue to provide) long-term job security for those entering the HVAC field. While other industries are laying off workers and contracting, the HVAC industry is expanding.

Hands-on and active work
If you’re not the type of person to sit at a desk and stare at a screen for hours on end, the active nature of HVAC could be for you. From working on-site at a facility to repairing air and heating units to servicing ventilation issues, a technician’s job is never boring or slow. 

Ask yourself this: are you a problem solver? If so, then you might like this stat: those in the HVAC industry solve problems for their customers every day.

Health and Safety
If the recent pandemic taught us anything, it’s that health and safety are paramount. A well-maintained HVAC system allows for air filtration that boosts indoor air quality. Additionally, units that have been serviced regularly will be more energy efficient.
