HVAC is an abbreviation for Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning. These are the three fundamental requirements of any building be it high-rise buildings, small dwellings or industries. The term 'climate control' is also used to denote the system because these three functions have become an integral part of every modern structure and have added to the 'comfort quotient' of the building.

This sector is used to regulate the room temperature, humidity and airflow, thereby improving the living conditions in the building. This system helps in reducing fatigue, improving physical strength and lessening health related hazards. It boosts thinking abilities and keeps you mentally agile and active.

The jobs in this sector are not difficult to find. You can find jobs like a technician, a pipe fitter, a foreman, a superintendent, a sales representative or even a manager. With the right qualifications, you can get jobs from all around the globe.

To start a career in this system, you need training, which will get you a HVAC universal license. So students who have completed high school can enroll themselves in the training institutes which offer training that leads to their certification. With the growth in this industry, lots of training institutes have also grown. So, be careful when you choose the school to which you are enrolling.

Students in the school learn how these systems are assembled, how it works and how to regulate it. They also learn to troubleshoot and diagnose the faulty systems and repair them. They are also trained to handle the chemicals and the toxic gases like chlorofluorocarbons, which the system discharges. After adequate training and once you are armed with a certificate, you can consider yourself a skilled worker and there will be a high demand for your services. You will start off with higher than average wages, particularly in big cities, where there are more sky scrapers, huge apartment blocks and large shopping complexes, malls and multi-specialty big hospitals.

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.
