If you’ve recently graduated from high school, you may be wondering what to do next with your life if college isn’t for you. If you’ve graduated college but can’t immediately find employment in your field, you may be wondering how you will be able to support yourself. These are all valid questions and concerns.
One occupation you may not have considered before is a trade industry career; specifically, that of an HVAC technician. “HVAC” is shorthand for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning,” which are appliances that almost everyone depends on year-round. If you’re the type of person who can’t see themselves sitting at a desk for eight hours a day, you may want to consider a career as an HVAC Technician.
Here are a few other reasons why many people found happiness and success in an HVAC Technician career:
Some people enjoy having a set routine where every day looks the same. Others prefer a bit more spontaneity in their day. If your personality favors the latter, a career in the trade industry is ideal because there’s hardly any monotony. It’s rare that two days are alike as an HVAC technician. You may be repairing a broken air conditioner one day and fixing duct work the next. You’re always on the go, whether in people’s homes or different business locations. The scenery is constantly changing.
In addition, as more people are becoming environmentally conscious, they are switching out their dated units for more energy-efficient ones. This means there is a constant need for your services, and a steady flow of new projects.
You’re working one-on-one with people who really need help, and the skills you’ll learn can be potentially lifesaving. You’ll help elderly people keep cool in the summer and families stay comfortable during the cooler months, among many other things. Perhaps most importantly, you’re helping your customers protect their health by ensuring they have adequate indoor air quality.
It can be draining for the mind and soul to sit at a desk for eight hours a day, five days a week. Long periods of sitting aren’t even that good for you; you could increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure, among other things. Health experts agree that keeping the body moving is vital for physical health, and a career as an HVAC technician can help you achieve just that. In the trade industry, you’re always going places, and always on your feet repairing or installing appliances. You’ll not only burn calories at work but maintain good heart health too.
A broken AC blowing lukewarm air is a problem that needs to be solved. If you enjoyed puzzles as a kid – or maybe you still do – a career in the trade industry may be appealing for this reason. You’re not only solving a type of puzzle, but also solving a mystery: why is this appliance not working? Where is that fluid coming from? HVAC technicians are always figuring out the answers to these questions. You’ll get to put your problem-solving skills to the test every day.
