We've discussed many topics in the years since we began our blog, but we've never actually talked about why you should consider a career in HVAC. So, let's do that today! Here's a big pile of reasons why working in the HVAC industry might be the perfect fit for you.
Folks always want comfort. It's a fact of life. More importantly, heat is a necessity during Ohio's frigid winters. HVAC is also a job sector that grows steadily and continually and will almost certainly never be outsourced overseas.
Our industry has experienced growth of around 15% in the last 20 years, and The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the HVAC field will continue to grow at a similar rate in the next 20. Also, because heating and cooling technology constantly evolves, the business always needs new technicians to replace aging and outdated equipment. For example, furnaces that are ten years old and beyond probably aren't up to today's energy efficiency standards. Likewise, we don't need to tell you that we all love to save money. As a result, customers will always seek to replace their energy-hogging HVAC equipment with new environmentally-friendly technologies that will save them money.
When their furnace breaks, Northeast Ohio residents want their heat back on immediately. Not tomorrow... not in a week... or a month... but right now! ASAP! So, if an HVAC company is short-staffed and emergencies happen (and they always do), congratulations! You're in demand. Technicians and installers are always in need.
This is why Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling offers emergency service. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week - we're there for our neighbors. We're dedicated to keeping our customers cozy in the winter and comfy in the summer. There are no after-hours or overtime fees. We install factory-authorized OEM repair parts, and no matter what brand of furnace or AC, we can service it.
Want to do your part to help the environment? In the HVAC industry, you'll get the satisfaction of knowing that modern HVAC technologies are designed to be energy efficient and safe for the environment. So, every time you install a new HVAC system at someone's home: voila! You've just helped protect the environment. And you'll save people money too, which they'll love you for.
Working as an HVAC technician is a wonderful way to develop and hone your customer service skills. At the same time, it's also a great way to network. If you love to meet people, you'll thoroughly enjoy a career in HVAC. When helping customers in their homes, you'll develop a rapport with them. You will meet new folks daily, and who knows? You may make some new friends along the way.
As HVAC technology advances and new energy efficiency standards are mandated - not to mention the fact that everybody looks to the internet for research these days - consumers are more savvy than ever about every facet of comfort. What that means for someone considering a new career is this: if you enjoy a challenge, HVAC is the perfect fit for you.
Servicing, installing, and maintaining HVAC systems is physically and mentally challenging. But, it's also a phenomenal opportunity for you to shine. You'll get to be a hero to a grateful family, every day. How cool is that?
The HVAC industry is divided into two sectors: residential and commercial. Whether you specialize in one or both, there are opportunities for advancement - not just as a technician, but also as an installer, in sales, management, and beyond. If you're ambitious, HVAC is the industry for you. You'll go far.
You'll learn a lot in the HVAC field about equipment, best practices, and tailoring solutions to each situation. Training and certification mean you'll be marketable across the industry, and the nature of the work will help you become a master of adaptation.
Also, as you might imagine, the HVAC industry is a melting pot of backgrounds. So, if you speak Spanish or another language, your job prospects are even greater. Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling values diversity, and every skill you bring to the workplace will make you a valuable asset to our team.
Installing an HVAC system in a home is rarely a one-size-fits-all process. There's an art and a science to everything involved, from selecting the proper AC unit to where the thermostat is located. Proper installation affects the comfort of the residents, as well as the system's energy consumption. So, if you're into problem-solving and knowing how things work, an HVAC career is probably an excellent fit for you.
You didn't think we'd post an article about HVAC careers and not talk about money, did you? Of course not. Arguably the best reason to work in HVAC is the money you'll make. Salaries vary by position and experience, but you can earn an excellent living. According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for an HVAC technician is more than $50,000 a year.
Naturally, as you gain experience and do great work, you can make up to $80,000 a year, or even more. But, if that's still not enough money for you, a career in HVAC also paves the way for you to start your own HVAC business. While our area's HVAC industry may seem saturated with hundreds of companies, there's a compelling reason. So many companies exist and thrive because the demand stays high. And it always will, because the need for heating and air conditioning services will never go away.
So, there you have it: money, job security, being a hero to others, and general career happiness. What more could you ask for? So, whether you work for one of the highest-rated HVAC companies in Northeast Ohio (like Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling) or another company, consider an HVAC career. We love it, and so will you!
