As the United States recovers from the Great Recession, there’s one field that’s been relatively impervious to the economic downturn: careers in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR). Style & Co. Wittyblk Women's Boots, Black, Size 8.0In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2017) projects that job openings for HVAC installers and mechanics will swell 15 percent between 2016 and 2026, much faster than the average growth anticipated across all occupations during that time (7 percent). The expected addition of 48,800 HVAC positions is due in part to people’s enduring need for comfortable shelter in the face of increasingly erratic weather patterns. By illustration, the World Economic Forum (2017) – which has tracked the uptick in natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy – correctly predicted in its annual risks report that extreme weather events and natural disasters would represent two of the three most likely risks we would face, globally, in 2017. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as the “perfect storm” Napa, Sonoma and Lake County wildfires, and the off-season winter wildfires in Los Angeles, have all borne this out. And all of these events have contributed to the need for failproof climate control in residential and commercial buildings. With burgeoning trends such as the greening of HVAC technology, the adoption of “smart” climate control systems, and the ever-changing environmental regulations set forth by local and national governments, HVAC is expected to be thriving field on into the future.Arche Ideam Red Nubuck Leather Court shoes

Although there are varied educational paths to joining this field, O*NET (2017) found that 55 percent of responding HVAC technicians held postsecondary certificates, and 16 percent had associate’s degrees. Sixty-four percent of these professionals were industry contractors—a relatively secure segment as manufacturers and contractors may provide customers with year-round service agreements—and nine percent were self-employed (BLS 2017).
