Whether you’ve just graduated high school or are a parent of a recent high school graduate, this blog post is for you! More than likely, you have a few important career-related priorities right now–finding a stable job, finding lucrative opportunities, and finding a job with high earning potential. The good news is, that a career in the trades offers all this and more!
A Hidden Opportunity in the Trades
More and more homeowners in our area are electrifying their homes–that is, converting from the use of fossil fuels to electric power. Looking ahead, as their natural gas and propane heating or hot water system fails and needs an upgrade, the alternative will likely be an electric heat pump system. This switch to electric means that the need for skilled HVAC technicians in refrigeration will grow exponentially.
Like many industries, the HVAC industry is experiencing an increased labor demand. And with the addition of electrification in homes, there will be even more career opportunities created within our community. We expect that HVAC will go from a once-hidden trade to center stage–so the time to get in the trades is now!
