What exactly is HVAC and why is it important?

Let’s talk about exactly what HVAC does. Most people know enough about it to know that it stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. But what does that mean?

o   HVAC is the technology of indoor environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality.

Why is HVAC such a popular and growing industry?

o   The HVAC industry is a stable industry with endless opportunities. Because it is such a technology-driven industry, the opportunity for different career paths is always growing and changing.  And as the population grows so does the demand for skilled HVAC Technicians.

What is the day-to-day life like of an HVAC grad?
