NBCNews.com’s January 8th article, “Federal Heating Subsidies in Spotlight after Cold Grips Nation,” discussed the program designated for low-income families struggling to heat their homes. In response, HVAC Education encouraged students to seriously consider a career in the HVAC industry; the need for heating and cooling is constant. As a large portion of the United States is blanketed in frigid temperatures, the need for heating professionals increases—a need that must be met by individuals with a background in HVAC training and education.
In NBC News’, Tom Curry discussed the changes made to the United States’ Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, including the removal of over $100 million from the program budget. Though the budget has decreased, the need for assistance has increased, prompting many to petition for a budget review and increase in the next year.
HVAC Education encouraged upcoming students to consider pursuing a career in the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning industry. HVAC Education knows that heating and air conditioning are commodities offered to the vast majority of Americans, regardless of economic status. For this reason alone, HVAC Education believes that an HVAC career is one unfettered by a fear of growing obsolete. For those in central and southern Arizona, HVAC Education knows that the need for air conditioning will not wane, and for those in northern Arizona, the need for adequate heating will not cease to exist.

HVAC Education encouraged upcoming students to consider the HVAC industry as a potential career choice. This career deals with the basic needs of Americans, and is even recognized by federal funds and funding programs. While HVAC needs vary somewhat depending upon the region, either heating or cooling is considered a necessity for some people. With the urgency of this commodity in mind, students would do well to work toward a career in this industry.
