Almost every aspect of the HVAC industry continues to grow, so finding employment either as a technician or as support personnel should not be difficult. Because society is dependent upon the industry, there is no shortage of jobs in the field.

A Wide Variety

The demand for installers and repairers is certainly on the rise, but so is the need for jobs in many other fields within the industry. From the bottom to the top, HVAC is growing and you don’t have to be trained to take advantage of the huge variety of jobs that are being created. Research and training is needed to keep up with the increase in new technologies – learn more. Engineering is needed to create quality products that will perform well. Marketing is needed to sell those same projects to the general public. A combination of all of these careers makes up the industry and its continued success.

Room to Grow

There is plenty of room to work your way up in the HVAC industry. Careers can be created from the ground up, with many technicians starting at the bottom of the totem pole and ending their career journey as a project developer. You don’t have to be stuck in one position during your entire working life. You can start small and, with a good work ethic, end up doing big things.

Additional Opportunities

Many workers turn to the HVAC field because of their lack of education. While expert training is required to become a skilled technician, there are also continued educational opportunities that can be taken advantage of. Some employers are now offering education and training that will help people move towards the field where they ultimately want to excel.

Types of HVAC Jobs

With the continued growth of the industry, there are many HVAC jobs available that will continue to grow and are great opportunities even for those who are not trained technicians, including:

  • Accounting
  • Design Engineering
  • Information Technology
  • Public Relations
  • Telemarketing

Where to Find a Job

Finding a job in the HVAC industry can be simple if you know where to look. With so many jobs available, it won’t take much to get a lead. Some of the best places to check include:

 

  • Craigslist
  • Employment Agencies
  • Social Media
  • Industry Events
  • Trade Shows
  • Online Job Listings

 

With so many options and no limits to hold you back, it’s easy to see why so many people are looking to the HVAC industry for their chosen career path. All it takes is one foot in the door to create a lifelong career in a field that is always needed and continually expanding with new technology and the everyday needs of the general public.
