HVAC offers an exciting career path for women.  If you have ever considered a job in the skilled trades workforce, here are some of the reasons to take the plunge into the rewarding HVAC field.

Great Career With Short Training Time

It only takes months of training to start earning money as an HVAC technician. If years of schooling has never appealed to you, training in HVAC can help you move forward quickly into a meaningful career.

In-demand Jobs

Women currently make up only 1.4% of the current HVAC industry. With skilled labor shortages, HVAC is one of the most in-demand careers on the market. In fact, the job outlook for HVAC careers is expected to grow 14% before 2024–double the typical growth for most industries.

Steady Work

Women know it is important to have a reliable income–HVAC work can be the perfect path to this kind of stability.  The majority of HVAC technicians are employed full-time and have access to steady work throughout the seasons. Regular weekday hours are common, although busy heating and cooling seasons may provide opportunities for overtime or odd-hour work.

Variety and Creativity

Most HVAC techs find that each day is different from the one before.  As an HVAC technician, there may be multiple service visits to different locations on the same day. There may be chances to stay at the same job site for several days at a time.  Opportunities for both indoor and outdoor work abounds. While the skills needed may remain the same from job to job, each project presents unique opportunities for problem-solving and creative thinking.

Great Pay in a Rewarding Field

HVAC technicians make an average of $45,110 per year.  And with additional training and certifications, it’s possible to grow your career in the HVAC field throughout your professional life.  In fact, the number of women who own and manage their own HVAC businesses has never been higher.
