Francisco Javier’s Answer

Hi Emmanuel: Being an HVAC technician, is not boring at all, opposite to that, is a challenging career to develop your hands-on abilities and the thermodynamics knowledge you have acquired while in the school. And the HVAC technician earns a high amount of money a year, in such a way, that you would be able to create your own HVAC business, just by leading a team work to perform the tasks you previously calculated by using a HVAC simulation software. By the other side, you can work on a leading HVAC company, on the design, manufacturing or installation of refrigeration and ventilation equipment to be used in hospitals, schools, offices or any other building complex. You can go any further in your career provided you like this area of Mechanical Engineering, so feel motivated, look in the internet what are the requirements the HVAC leading companies look on their employees; about this, I can mention just a few companies: Carrier, Johnson Controls Inc., York, among others. Finally, you can work as a service or maintenance technician on HVAC equipment as well.
Best regards.

Do you have passion in your field by chance, if not one can go into designing using equest 3.65 and learn how to make speficitions to buildings that allow for one to create different occupancy sizes, simulations, and designs. One could also be a consultant in the the HVAV industry and meeting with companies to sell their products.

Hope this help,

There's a variety of equipment out there that is forever going to change with the changes in energy efficiency regulations and technology. Theres residential, which is the most personal level of the field, then commercial, industrial, and BAS. So it is hard to get bored. Last week I worked at finding communication issues with a building automation system, and this week I will be leak searching a 500 ton chiller.

There are some problems that you will solve repeatedly as an air conditioning or refrigeration technician, but I see new pieces of equipment every day that I have to learn how to work on and unique symptoms or intermittent problems that drive me to keep learning, searching for explanations and keep my work exciting. I think you'll find a technician has one of the most exciting jobs in the industry. If you not sufficiently challenged in the residential market, commercial VAV, zoning and building management system controls Make those systems even more complex and unique.
In residential work, talking to customers and finding out what the issues are from their perspective also require some thought and attention. Sometimes it just takes a unique story from a customer to make it all worth it!
