What Does an HVAC Technician Do?

HVAC technicians play an integral role in supporting businesses and homeowners by installing, repairing, and maintaining heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. HVAC techs can work with climate control systems in residential and commercial buildings.

Since the number of commercial and residential buildings are growing and older homes are requiring upgraded systems, society will need more refrigeration, heating system, and air conditioning workers to meet the increasing demand, making this industry a rewarding and fast-paced career opportunity.

HVAC technicians have the opportunity to interact with and help customers. All of which can be done not sitting behind a desk.

As seasoned technicians continue to leave the workforce, the demand for a new generation of HVAC technicians is on the rise. In 2020, there were 380,400 available HVAC technician jobs in the U.S. By 2030, there are 19,000 more available jobs. With ongoing new construction and growing demand for climate-control systems, individuals have the opportunity for establishing a long-term career in the field.  HVAC training can also lead to non-technician positions within the industry.

If you’re looking for online education, Rosedale Tech’s HVAC program is not going to be for you.  We believe in continuing to teach real, hands-on training in person and on actual equipment that can be found in a work environment. 

HVAC technology is growing more complex with technical advances in the industry plus the shift toward energy-efficient designs. Therefore, companies need highly-trained individuals with advanced knowledge of HVAC systems and in-depth experience to maintain and install modern HVAC equipment but also understand how to repair older systems.

Our HVAC programs at Rosedale Tech offer challenging, hands-on training with a variety of equipment that prepares students for a career in the industry without the high costs of a four-year college. In addition, attending an HVAC trade school could allow career switchers to begin a new job faster with less debt.

Here is a glimpse at what the immersive HVAC program at Rosedale includes and what students can receive upon graduation that makes them more competitive when seeking employment.
