According to the US Department of Labor (Bureau of Labor Statistics)*, employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to increase 14 percent during the 2014-24 decade. HVAC systems generally need to be replaced after 10-15 years, and due to the large number of homes and commercial properties built in recent years, these units will need to be repaired and replaced by 2024. With the increased complexity in production of these units, HVAC technicians will need advanced and superior training. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median average hourly pay these high level heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers will earn is $22.07/hour or $45,910 annually.
