    What HVAC Technicians Do

    HVAC installers work with the heating, cooling and ventilation systems in homes and businesses. They install, repair and maintain different types of HVAC systems. Part of their job is working with various chemicals that need to be conserved or disposed of according to strict federal regulations.

    To be hired by most employers in this field, you should have at least a secondary degree in heating, air conditioning and refrigeration from a trade school or community college. Because of the increasing complexity and demands of this occupation, you may also be required to obtain certification in specific areas of competency. There are some states that require further licensing to become a professional HVAC technician.

    Job Requirements and Skills

    HVAC systems are complex machines with many components that need to mesh seamlessly. Thus, HVAC technicians must have a keen mechanical aptitude and excellent troubleshooting skills.

    Some HVAC equipment is heavy, while other parts are small. A technician must therefore be strong enough to do some heavy lifting but also possess manual dexterity in order to handle smaller components.

    As a HVAC technician, you will be talking and dealing with customers directly when you are on the jobsite. Being a clear communicator and having a friendly and approachable demeanor are therefore essential to the job.
