Confidence remains high for HVAC technicians in HVAC future

Confidence in the AC & Heating/Refrigeration industry continues to remain strong as demand for professionally trained HVAC technicians remains high.

Professionally trained HVAC technicians are needed in every part of the country, which is why so many job seekers are considering a career in this important industry.

According to the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, the monthly Contractor Comfort Index in November showed that contractors continue to feel confident about short-term growth. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.

The Contractor Comfort Index in November was 59 and also showed that contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 55.

The Contractor Comfort Index is calculated based on a survey of the association’s contractor members, according to the ACCA, who are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects, existing business activity, and expected staffing decisions in the short-term future. “Weighted and averaged into one number, a CCI of 50 or above reflects anticipated growth,” the ACCA reports in a press release about the survey. The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the third week of December.

Part of the confidence in the growth of the HVAC industry comes from the fact that there is a huge need for skilled AC & Heating/Refrigeration technicians, and that demand is projected to remain high for several years. However, employers prefer to hire employees who have professional HVAC-R training. You can learn the skills you need to excel in the HVAC-R industry at Ayers Career College’s refrigeration school and training program.

The industry is one of the fastest in the country, especially as building construction, home construction, and renovation projects begin to pick up as the country recovers from the Great Recession. New technologies and an increased focus on energy efficiency are also driving up demand for HVAC-R technicians, and employers are in need of professionally trained HVAC-R technicians that understand today’s AC & Heating/Refrigeration industry.

In today’s era of high unemployed, there is a shortage of skilled labor employees, and that includes HVAC technicians, especially those with relevant training in newer systems and technology.

If you are serious about beginning a new career as an AC & Heating/Refrigeration technician, then you must receive the kind of professional training today’s employers are looking for. The best place to meet those requirements is at Ayers Career College, where students of the HVAC-R training program are often in high demand due to the high level of training they receive and their ability to adapt to new technologies that are constantly changing the HVAC-R industry.
