If you enjoy mechanical systems and solving problems, consider a career as a heating, air conditioning and refrigeration technician. HVAC systems control temperature, humidity and air quality where we live and work and let us store and transport food, medicine and other items needed to sustain life. These systems consist of many mechanical, electrical and electronic parts, and HVAC mechanics and technicians must be able to install, maintain, diagnose and repair them.
Work for plumbing, heating and air conditioning contractors, in businesses that use HVAC systems, or start your own business.
