A Career In Heating And Air Conditioning

Generally, degree programs or certificates in this area will be categorized under the term of HVAC or heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. Pupils taking these courses can concentrate on specific areas of interest such as heating and air conditioning throughout the course of study. In addition, there is further specialization within HVAC programs with concerns to working on commercial units or residential units, although standard courses will provide students with an outstanding foundation for working with both types. There are numerous levels of courses offered at the majority of technical and occupational schools ranging from an Associate in Applied Science degree in HVAC to a HVAC Installation or Repair certificate program.

Throughout the different courses, students will not just sit in class and pay attention, they will also be provided lab and real world experiences in the fields of heating and air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration. Pupils may finish apprenticeship programs and practical work experience as part of the certification or degree program, depending on the sort of course that they are completing. Graduates will have experience in working on all facets of these systems including testing, troubleshooting, electrical repair work and wiring, carbon monoxide gas testing and computer systems as they relate to temperature control and heating and air conditioning systems.

Specialists working in the heating and air conditioning area can expect to make different annual earnings depending on where they are located and the amount of experience and education they have. Work is typically either by contract or by hour, with per hour wages averaging between fifteen and seventeen dollars for beginning to mid level HVAC professionals and those with experience generally earning over twenty dollars per hour. Jobs are more readily available in larger areas and certainly in higher demand in larger population centers, although there is still a steady and stable need for HVAC even in smaller sized more rural areas. Large businesses and manufacturing plants often employ their own repair and maintenance specialists and this can be an excellent opportunity to work up through the ranks into HVAC management positions.Tucson Air Conditioning Service\n
