Why Pursue a Career in HVAC-R? Top

Homeowners have been spending more time at home the last few years. This has allowed them to identify areas for improvement in and around the house that makes living — and working from home — more comfortable. One of the improvements many homeowners have been making is upgrading their heating and cooling system to include a heat pump.

The increased demand for heat pumps, improved ventilation and indoor air quality, and ease of temperature control is showing no signs of slowing down. Innovations in HVAC-R technology are continuously improving the energy efficiency of indoor comfort systems. This is an exciting and fast-paced time for the industry.

Training to become an HVAC-R professional as an apprentice allows you to earn a living while getting hands-on training from an experienced Red Seal Journeyperson. By taking an HVAC-R related course such as Building Systems Technician, you can learn the foundational skills to better prepare you for your apprenticeship and give you an edge to gain employment.
