The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that, between 2012 and 2022, the HVAC field will experience a growth rate of 21%. While it may seem like a small percentage, it is actually tremendous.
Currently, there is an intense need for HVAC professionals, domestic refrigeration technicians and major appliance technicians. Largely, older technicians are aging out and retiring, and there is a gap where young, skilled laborers can take their places. Mike Rowe, star and host of the TV series Dirty Jobs, addressed the Senate Commerce Committee in 2011, elaborating that, “Right now, American manufacturing is struggling to fill 200,000 vacant positions. There are 450,000 openings in trades, transportation and utilities.” Currently, there are many opportunities available all over the country for people who are looking to enter the HVAC career or further their skills.
