What Do You Learn in an HVAC Training Program?

Make your HVAC training San Antonio Texas worthwhile by planning for your future. The field of HVAC covers many elements: heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, EPA regulations, energy efficiency, green technology, and more. During your HVAC training San Antonio Texas, you will learn the basics of all of these sectors, but you may also like to start considering your area of specialization. One of the best ways to make an informed decision is to stay up to date with current trends in Texas.

1. Phasing Out R-22
The most common refrigerant for many years was hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC-22), normally known as R-22. However, this refrigerant has a high impact on the environment and is responsible for ozone depletion. For this reason, it is now being replaced with more eco-friendly options and will most likely be completely phased out by 2020. You can take away from this that an ever growing number of consumers are interested in being environmentally responsible. Show you are able to meet their demands by obtaining a Green Certification and learn to work with a variety of refrigerants, particularly R-410A, which contains no chlorine and is therefore ozone-friendly.

2. Increased Digitalization
This trend is particularly important for HVAC students, as it emphasizes the importance of mastering technology to improve your job opportunities. Smartphones are gaining a more central role for both communication and apps. It may benefit you to become familiar with the most popular apps ahead of time to prepare for job interviews.

3. More E-Commerce
E-commerce is gaining popularity in all sectors, with consumers turning to the Internet for purchases, promotions, and reviews from customers like them. This has meant there is less place for HVAC technicians; however, you can still play a vital role in offering advice for complex decisions, provided you stay informed about the different options.

4. New Construction
As the economy continues to recover, the number of new constructions grow. There is a greater need for HVAC unit installations, whereas maintenance requirements remain more or less static. This is good to bear in mind as an HVAC student, as you will want to ensure you learn plenty about installing systems for both residential and non-residential settings to be able to keep up with the demand for these services. The best HVAC training San Antonio Texas will teach you all you need to know to cope with the changes in the industry. When deciding where to study, look for schools that use the latest technology, offer instruction in your preferred areas, and provide the opportunity to gain plenty of useful certifications.

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
