HVAC Schools

Formal education is a great choice when pursuing a career in HVAC.  There are unlimited choices when it comes to choosing a school.  Do your homework and get the facts, including third party verification, before making a significant investment of time and money in HVAC Schools.

Types of HVAC Schools

HVAC Engineering.   Many excellent four + year degree programs exist for Engineering Schools with HVAC classes and programs.  This website is focused on training and education for non-degree, non-engineering positions.  We are interested in your future and would be happy to discuss our opinions in this area one-on-one.  See the contact tab and drop us an email or phone call.

HVAC Associates Degree.  Many public community colleges and some high schools have programs that will result in a two year HVAC associates degree.  Many of the public and community based institutions have excellent programs.  These schools produce many of the technical tradesmen hired by HVAC contractors.  There is no guarantee however that an associate’s degree will result in employment in the industry.  Our recommendation is a combination of summer employment working for an HVAC contractor and fall /winter school attendance.  You can even hold down a year round day job and attend school at night.  Some contractors will sponsor your education.  Contact us if you need help finding a contractor sponsor.

Trade Schools.  Trade schools produce many of the technicians hired by HVAC contractors.  The cost, quality and range of classes vary from one end of the spectrum to the other.  The value of attending a privately owned vocational or trade school has not been established.  Again, interview several contractors and ask their opinion on the specific school, before making a choice.

On-Line Schools.  If you have good study habits and self discipline, this form of education might be the fastest route to the higher paying positions in the HVAC industry.  You can learn the classroom portion at your own pace.  You will also need a resource for the hands-on training required.  You will need skills such as soldering, pipe fitting, wiring, etc that must be learned in a classroom lab or on the job training.  You will also need hands on resources to hone the classroom skills.  This site will guide you if you decide to pursue this route to your HVAC career.  Don’t hesitate to ask question or contact us.
