Job Outlook for HVAC Technicians

Employers want technicians who understand today’s complex HVAC systems, leading to high demand for skilled heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC-R) technicians who have completed training from an accredited school. HVAC Techs are in great demand in residential and commercial workplaces, including building contractors, working with light commercial heating, cooling, refrigeration systems, appliance repair centers, or property management companies.

HVAC salaries, job creation, and employment are all growing faster than the national average. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employers prefer to hire formally educated mechanics, specifically graduates, from trade schools like the Ayers Career College.

Professional staff and excellent in every way imaginable.
