Busting 4 HVACR Industry Myths

The mechanical systems that are used for cooling, heating, and ventilation in an interior setting are referred to as HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) systems. The world of HVACR is a great career opportunity but has a few myths that need dispelling. Contrary to what many believe, the HVACR industry has many diverse job opportunities for everybody.

Myth #1: You need a university degree.
The HVACR industry offers a wide range of career options; some need a university degree, while many do not. Though most occupations need more education than high school, you are not required to attend university. Only approximately one out of every ten jobs need a university degree, according to the Construction Sector Council.

Myth #2: In HVACR the only job opportunities are field positions
Professionals that can conceive, plan, and interact with both external and internal customers, and innovative individuals who welcome the use of constantly evolving technologies improving HVAC tools and systems, are needed in the HVACR business. In addition to the skilled trades’ careers, opportunities can be found in planning and project management, sales, marketing, administrative functions and more.

Myth #3: Working with HVAC Tools requires brute strength
This is an industry that thrives on new ideas! Through innovation and improved technology HVAC tools often require more brains than brawn. Today’s HVAC tools are more efficient, save time and are easier to use.

Myth #4: HVACR jobs don’t pay well.
Competitive pay is available in this field. Salary levels vary depending on the professional route chosen, but the field offers well-paid opportunities for those who are ready to put in the effort. If you opt to work in the trades, you will find that demand has grown for qualified, trained associates.
