& Air Conditioning (HVAC)

HVAC technicians install and perform routine service on heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems. Maintenance services include tasks such as changing filters, cleaning ducts, power-washing units, oiling parts, or refilling non-toxic refrigerants. Installing a new system is a bigger job and includes assembling and mounting heating or cooling equipment, laying out and connecting electrical wiring between controls and equipment, and installing ductwork or chassis parts using metal-working tools or welding equipment. A full installation can also include drilling holes in floors, walls, or roofs using power saws or drills.
