Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Technician Job Description

*Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems are known as HVAC. An HVAC system allows building residents to provide a comfortable, climate controlled environment. The installers and mechanics for an HVAC system are called technicians.

*An HVAC technician will be trained in installation and maintenance, but may specialize in one or the other. HVAC technicians can also choose an equipment specialty.

*Employment opportunities and salaries are much greater for trained and certified technicians.

Duties and Responsibilities

*HVAC systems consist of hundreds of electrical, electronic, and mechanical parts. Depending upon the day, an HVAC technician may be maintaining a system, diagnosing and repairing problems, or installing and replacing components or entire systems.

*HVAC technicians typically work a regular schedule, but will be called upon out of hours for emergency repairs.

Training and Education Requirements

*A majority of HVAC technicians receive their training from community colleges, technical or trade schools.

*Training can take between 6 months to 2 years from each element of study (heating, air conditioning, refrigeration).

*Following the completion of an accredited course, technicians will typically need 6 months to 2 years of experience before most employers will consider them proficient.

*Apprenticeships are another route an HVAC technician can take. An apprenticeship will usually run between 3 and 5 years, and require a qualified mentor.
