With the population growing the number of buildings is increasing in every area, residential, commercial, and industrial, and so is the need for setting up climate-control systems. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), HVAC installer jobs are projected to increase almost 9% during the 2006-2016 decade; job prospects are expected to be excellent.

The Indispensable Need for HVAC Installers

HVAC systems are made up of various electrical and mechanical components, and include parts like thermostats, ducts, motors, fans, and pipes. HVAC installers are trained professionals who specialize in installing HVAC systems, from ductwork for large building air-conditioners, to refrigerators, heat pumps, and furnaces.

The increasing sophistication of modern HVAC systems creates a demand for knowledgeable and skilled HVAC installers, particularly those who have completed technical school training or a formal apprenticeship.

HVAC Installer Jobs are Expected to be in High Demand

There are a number of reasons why HVAC installer jobs will be in great demand.
  • Replacement of Aged HVACR Systems
Residential HVACR systems should be replaced after 10 to 15 years. As a result, many HVAC systems in homes built in 1995 are being replaced today, while those built today will require replacement by 2020. As this cycle progresses and the number of new homes increases, the demand for HVAC installer jobs is likely to increase as well.
  • Increasing Concern for Indoor Air Quality
As concern for indoor air quality increases, many stores, including gasoline stations that sell food products, will need to install heating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems. This will create more HVAC installer jobs.
  • New Technology Calls for Replacement of Old HVAC Systems
With new technology being introduced and advertised more often than ever, people want to replace their old HVAC systems and install newer, more efficient systems.
  • Environmental Concern Prompts Use of New Energy-Saving HVAC Systems
Increased environmental concerns are prompting people to install new energy-saving heating and air-conditioning systems. This will lead to the replacement of old systems and installation of new, efficient systems in existing homes and buildings (creating more demand for HVAC installer jobs).
  • Anti-pollution Regulations
Regulations that bar the production and use of old refrigeration systems that pollute the atmosphere are forcing people to install new eco-friendly refrigeration systems. This has enhanced the demand for HVAC installer jobs.

HVAC Installer Jobs are Found in Every Sector

According to the BLS, heating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers held about 292,000 jobs in 2006. Contractors in the plumbing, heating, and air-conditioning sectors employed 55% of those workers.

HVAC installer jobs can be found in almost every field, from air-conditioning repair shops to schools, colleges, hospitals, and office buildings. Both federal and state governments offer HVAC installer jobs.


Homes and businesses depend on their climate-control or refrigeration systems, and must be sure they are kept in good working order regardless of economic conditions. However, technicians who specialize in installation work may experience periods of unemployment when the level of new construction activity declines.

HVAC installer jobs are best found in fast growing areas of the country. An ageing population of skilled technicians is also expected to keep demand for HVAC installer jobs in good health.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
