Andrew,
I agree with Eric's answer; there is likely plenty of opportunities to start with a company as an apprentice. Most of the larger HVAC employers support a local apprenticeship program that some will help with the cost of the training. Since HVAC uses a combination of electrical and plumbing technologies, you could focus on either of them to get started with understanding one then the other to learn the basics in pieces instead of being overwhelmed with all of the information at once. After you get a good amount of experience and the hours worked in the field, you can go for the certificates as an apprentice, then as a journeyman, then as a master licensed HVAC technician that gives you the opportunity to start your own company.

Hasan’s Answer

In order to become an HVAC worker, you will need to complete a postsecondary certificate program in HVAC technology. This program typically takes one to two years to complete and covers topics such as electrical systems, air conditioning, heating systems, and ventilation. Additionally, you may need to obtain a license or certification from the state in which you plan to work.

Eric’s Answer

There's a lot of programs that will teach you to be an hvac worker while getting paid. If you google HVAC apprentice, there should be plenty of positions. Just look around. I would avoid doing certifications for now, learn on the job and get certifications during or after.
