General Job Descriptions of a HVAC Tech:
A heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanic/installer works on units that provide air quality and temperature control in homes, hospitals, and businesses. They use design specifications or blueprints to repair or install units and test the systems for proper working order.
HVAC techs replace or repair parts or units and advise clients how to improve a system to become energy efficient. A HVACR may choose to specialize in a particular area of equipment, like solar panels or other types of systems or may wish to focus on maintenance and installation. They must be current on government regulation when working with air conditioning or refrigeration units and need to be aware of the correct way to dispose and handle pressurized gases and fluids.
