1. A Booming Economy Creating Demand for HVAC Techs

The housing economy in Texas is booming. Homes are being built at a faster pace than ever before, and they’re also larger than ever before. As a result, more and more homes have multiple HVAC units to account for more living space, creating a demand for more HVAC techs and repairs than the traditional one-unit home. 

As a result, more job opportunities are available for HVAC technicians looking for a career in a growing industry. If you’re looking for a career in an industry that offers stability, security, and opportunity, the HVAC industry could be the right fit for you.

2. New HVAC Rules and Regulations

One of the reasons HVAC technicians are in demand is due to their expertise in working with hazardous chemicals and materials. Unlike some careers which do not require training or certification, HVAC specialists are respected for their training which prepares them to handle various types of chemicals and substances that keep HVAC equipment running efficiently. 

Many HVAC specialists also choose to pursue specialty certifications that allow them to gain more experience working with these types of substances. A few of the specialty HVAC certifications which may be beneficial for HVAC technicians in Texas to pursue include:

EPA Certifications for HVAC Technicians

Several substances that HVAC technicians work with on a daily basis can cause significant damage to the environment and the ozone layer if they are not handled properly. As a result, many HVAC technicians may choose to pursue or may be required by their employers to obtain EPA certifications that ensure they are equipped to handle these substances. 

There are various types of EPA certifications for HVAC technicians to consider. HVAC technicians who work with small appliances and those who install, inspect, and repair A/C units may choose to pursue Type I and Type II EPA certifications, while those interested in working with newer equipment and low pressure systems may pursue more advanced certifications that offer more opportunities to work with commercial HVAC systems. 

Preventative Maintenance Certification for HVAC Technicians

Both residential and commercial clients rely on HVAC techs and their expertise for installing and repairing new and broken HVAC equipment, but HVAC technicians who are equipped to inspect HVAC components to prevent problems before they occur are in high demand in Texas. Pursuing a preventive maintenance HVAC certification can offer more job opportunities and prepare you for a successful career as an HVAC techs in Texas.

HVAC technicians work to protect the air circulating into and throughout your home, so it stands to reason their skills would be valuable when it comes to maintaining the air you breathe in your vehicle as well. 

Like traditional HVAC technicians, automotive HVAC technicians work to install, inspect, and maintain air quality. The only difference is that automotive HVAC technicians receive specialized training in the automotive sector. For those who are interested in HVAC technology and automobiles, this could be an exciting career path for you as well.
