Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) January 04, 2014
On December 28th, Havasu News released an article titled “College Completes New $2.2M HVAC Building on Havasu Campus,” prompting a response from HVAC Education. HVAC Education offered three advantages of HVAC training for readers to consider when researching a new career. These advantages focus on career outlook and expected pay rates, as well as expected training time. As the article suggests, working in the HVAC industry does not look vastly different from training for other careers, and should be regarded as a legitimate option for all who are interested.
Kelsey Ringuette’s article identified Mohave Community College for its contribution to its HVAC students. The school recently updated the HVAC teaching facilities, expanding a once-dingy building over 9,000 square feet. The building was built in response to an essay conducted in 2012, and is expected to help accommodate Mohave’s increasing enrollment.
Following this article, HVAC ED compiled three advantages of pursuing a career in the HVAC industry:
1. HVAC training and education programs are widely varied and may fit a number of different needs. Certification programs can take as little as 4 months, and attest to being job-ready. For those who wish to invest more time, both Associate and Bachelor’s degrees are available.
2. Career outlooks in the HVAC industry are positive, particularly in comparison to humanities-based programs. While the job market continues to be somewhat volatile, the need for hard-working, educated HVAC professionals does not wane, as every commercial and private structure has a need for such services.
3. Finally, pay. Although many careers allow novices to make minimum wage, or around $10 per hour, most HVAC professionals can expect a beginning base pay rate of $15-$20 per hour.

HVACED.com commented that while there are many degrees available to students, many boast low employment rates or low starting compensation. HVAC ED has seen that HVAC professionals do not typically experience these setbacks, however, as the HVAC industry is one with no end in sight. HVAC ED knows that because the need for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning will continue to thrive as long as structures are erected, HVAC professionals can expect consistency in their industry. Though the need for workers will wax and wane throughout the year, an average hourly compensation rate of $20 often makes up for any down time in work. HVAC ED believes that for those considering a change of career, or seeking their first career, making the decision to pursue school for technical training in the HVAC industry is a worthwhile pursuit.
