Heating Technician

Careers » HVAC, Electrical, Construction » Heating Technician

Heating technicians are often called "HVAC Technicians." The acronym HVAC stands for heating ventilation and air conditioning. Heating technicians are often trained in all types of ventilation systems and are therefore able to stay busy all year round no matter what the current weather conditions. The website www.jobdescriptions.net states that heating technicians are trained in both installation and maintenance but under normal circumstances the technician will be an expert at either installation or maintenance - usually not both. In addition to having excellent customer services skills because heating technicians deal directly with clients heating technicians must also be very handy with a wide variety of tools. Additionally heating technicians must know how to use operate and read carbon monoxide detectors pressure gages and other instruments that help detect heating system problems. In order to become a heating technician a high school diploma is required plus graduation from a technical or vocation school. Some heating technicians choose to enroll in an apprenticeship program in lieu of a classroom education which often take up to five years to complete. Heating technicians often work during regular business hours but usually work on-call and must respond during evening hours or on weekends when problems arise that must be fixed immediately. Emergencies are most common during extreme weather conditions so heating technicians know that when the temperature dips extremely low the chances of being called to fix a broken heating unit is high. The website eductiona-portal.com reports that the median annual salary for a heating technician is $68539.
