Heating and Cooling Technicians

Employment Prospects


Approximately 367,900 heating and cooling technicians are employed in the United States. While most technicians work directly with the building, installation, and maintenance of equipment via heating and cooling firms, some work in equipment sales. Other technicians work for manufacturers in engineering or research laboratories, utility companies, and consulting firms. Some large institutions such as hospitals, universities, factories, office complexes, and sports arenas employ heating and cooling technicians directly, maintaining their own climate-control staffs. Some technicians also open up their own businesses, either as heating and cooling contractors or consultants specializing in sales, parts supply, service, and installation.
