What Does an HVAC Tech Do?

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians install HVAC systems, or repair and maintain systems already in place.

If your job is to install a new system, you’ll read blueprints and prepare a space for the new equipment. The job will be finished when you’ve made sure the unit works properly and meets local compliance requirements.

If you work on an existing system, you’ll inspect each component. If a part or systems isn’t working, you’ll repair or replace it. The unit’s ventilation system needs to work efficiently too. If not, you’ll need to repair or replace this as well.

HVAC technicians may be on the move and work in different locations. They may work on their own or in teams, depending on the size and complexity of the project. This profession could be a great match for someone who enjoys working with their hands and having variety in their work every day.
