What does your future hold? There is no right or wrong answer, but Merts Heating & Air Conditioning believes young people are making a mistake if they don’t at least consider an HVAC career. Consider these factors below.
Virtually every south suburban home near Steger, IL or in Northwest Indiana near Crown Point has heating and cooling systems. They all require repair and maintenance by trained HVAC technicians. It’s not something that can be done by unskilled workers.
Even during slow times, new houses and commercial structures are being built every day. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of job opportunities in the heating, cooling, and refrigeration industry is expected to grow by 15% by 2026.
Put those factors together: High demand, unique skills, job growth, and the result is strong wage growth even for entry-level workers. Wages will increase with experience, advanced training, and industry certifications.
HVAC Career Advancement Opportunities
When you come to work for Merts you will have every opportunity to advance your heating and air conditioning career education. We have an extensive in-house training program to go along with advanced training from our suppliers like Bryant. We will also help you pursue your NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certification. It is the nation’s largest certification organization for HVAC technicians.
No Crushing Student Debt
This is another important factor for students to consider as you choose your career. Your initial HVAC training is usually a one or two-year program at a technical school. No six-figure student loans to pay off like many four-year college graduates must deal with.
