According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, for technicians working with heating, refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation, job prospects are promising. Not only is there a current need for HVAC techs, but openings for HVAC techs jobs are actually on the rise. This isn’t just in Arizona; it stretches across the country from Southern California to Northern Maine.

In both established companies and instances of self-employment, job openings in the HVAC field are increasing faster than some employment fields, with a 28% rise predicted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Heating, Air Conditioning, and Ventilation Education

Education is more important than ever for getting a good HVAC job because of the increasing complexity of HVAC systems being used and the increasing significance placed on systems that provide energy efficiency. Though these new systems will initially require more training for HVAC techs, they will ultimately increase employment opportunities significantly in the HVAC field. To take advantage of the increasing need for HVAC techs, current technicians and those interested in becoming technicians need to be certified in the latest HVAC technology.

Pay Scale for HVAC Technicians

The average HVAC tech salary is $19.08, but some earn over $30 while others earn less than $12. HVAC technicians that are trained in the latest systems and computer literate are more likely to be hired for jobs on the higher paying end of the spectrum. Benefits vary by employer, but benefits are one of the advantages of working for someone rather than being self-employed.

Ultimately, it is possible that HVAC technicians will be in high demand for the next several decades at least. Anyone considering joining this exciting career field will benefit from HVAC training from a quality trade school.
