What Is an HVAC Technician?

An HVAC technician is a skilled worker who performs maintenance, repairs, and installations for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration units. As the first line of defense, homeowners will rely on you to keep their homes adequately heated and cooled.

Since no two HVAC projects or atmospheres are the same, your days will be filled with everchanging tasks, the most common being:

  • Installation: Perform the necessary math to properly install the required HVAC equipment. Then, you’ll install the piping and run low-voltage electrical connections to hook up the HVAC system.
  • Maintenance: Homeowners may contact you for routine HVAC maintenance about twice per year. During this time, you’ll test the HVAC systems, clean parts, check coolant levels, and more.
  • Repair: When something isn’t working with an HVAC system, you’re called to come out to diagnose and repair the issue. This could include issues with the thermostat, heating system, refrigerant levels, and more.

Before you begin an HVAC program, you might already have some of the necessary skills needed to excel as an HVAC technician. These skills include:
