Here where I live, you can certainly make a superb living as an HVAC specialist, but I think that the work market is certainly strong around here because the heating and cooling companies that are here are just about always hiring.
I don’t think they have a high turnover rate, but it seems like every heating and cooling dealer in that space is always looking for new HVAC specialists to hire, business seems to be booming, and that goes along with all of the new construction that is going on around here! cooling companies are in high demand at this point, and commercial cooling companies.
I know that a lot of companies, like the one that I work for, offer entirely competitive wages and the work environments are great. I like finally working for the dealer where I am at right now because they basically let me choose our own hours throughout the week, but a lot of times, I only work the nights that I want to and I take off other nights. I never work on holidays or on weekends, but if I wanted to, I would get paid time and a half for volunteering to work on those schedules. I think that a lot of people do not believe that a service industry like the cooling industry is entirely glamorous, but the fact remains that people are always going to need heating and cooling specialists. As long as humans need heating sources and air conditioning, they are going to need people like us around who know how to fix those things.
