Think about it, no matter the time of year, no matter the circumstances, people need heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. From emergencies to maintenance, new projects and more, there are always people with HVAC needs. Because of this, HVAC is a steady and productive industry. A report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that HVAC employment opportunities will rise through 2029.

Additionally, it is reported that the median salary for HVAC technicians ranges between about 45k and 50k, depending on your specific trade within the industry.

All this information goes to show that not only is HVAC a thriving industry in general, but it’s only expected to grow in the coming years. You can feel confident that as an HVAC technician you will be a needed, valuable asset to your community.

Plenty of Opportunities

Because HVAC technicians are needed everywhere, that means there is work just about everywhere! Of course, states will require specific certifications you may need to obtain if you’re moving to an area different from where you trained and were certified, but that doesn’t negate the fact that there are plenty of opportunities to work in a place you love when you’re an HVAC technician.

At Champion Technician Institute, we offer courses that help you achieve Alabama-specific certifications as well as widely recognized EPA 608 certifications.

If you can’t comprehend working at a desk all day, HVAC could be a career for you! All jokes aside, with jobs like inspection, repair, and installation you’ll be physically active during your workday. This can also be a benefit to your long term health — getting outside, walking through project sites, and performing the labor needed to complete certain tasks will keep you moving which is extremely important.
