Are you into model building or have named yourself Mr. Fix It? HVAC Technicians are always piecing things together as they install, maintain, and repair heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. HVAC covers it all: motors, compressors, pumps, fan, thermostats, and computerized switches control systems in residential, commercial, and industrial structures. Specialize in specific equipment, such as hydronics (water-based heating systems), solar panels, or commercial refrigeration.
Education: One to two years of training, both in a classroom and on-the-job.
Qualifications: Good hand-eye coordination, physical dexterity, mechanical and mathematical aptitude. Some states require licensure by passing a written examination. Also, HVAC technicians frequently communicate directly with clients, so courtesy and tact is a must.
