The industry of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is one of the largest growing and has some of the best opportunities for career advancement. Many people are starting to look outside of the office for satisfying, stable, and lucrative HVAC jobs that keep both their bodies and their minds active. A shortage in the HVAC industry means that it is one of the best industries for starting a career.
Whether you are an experienced technician looking for a fulfilling job with a reputable company, or you are looking to enter the industry as an apprentice, there are many reasons why seeking a position with Boulden Brothers is a wise decision. Here are our top reasons to become an HVAC technician or apprentice with Boulden Brothers.
Get Paid While You Learn
Apprentices will be happy to learn that they can earn money while learning. Apprentices typically start at about half of the salary that an experienced technician would make doing the same job. However, the more skills you gain, the more you will be paid. This is a great way to learn a new skill while making some income and a good way to get on the path to frequent pay raises.
One of the best benefits of a career in HVAC is the short training period. Traditional collegiate programs take at least 4 years to complete, if not more. At the end of this time, there is no guarantee of finding a job, and most entry-level jobs don’t have enough pay to keep up with rising expenses.
Training as an HVAC technician takes less than a year, and the fertile job market in this industry virtually guarantees a job at the end of the training program. Compared with other career paths, training to be an HVAC technician is a stable choice that will immediately pay off, and entry-level HVAC jobs pay well.
No Fear of Outsourcing
Many people are losing their jobs due to outsourcing. The very nature of HVAC makes outsourcing nearly impossible. Both emergency heating and air conditioning and in-home maintenance and installation necessitate local labor. This keeps jobs in the community; HVAC apprentice jobs with Boulden Brothers directly benefit the Newark, DE area.
Long-term Job Security
In addition to outsourcing problems, workers face even more job loss due to increasing technology and economy changes. The good news is that regardless of the many changes in the social climate and economy, it is incredibly likely that people will still need heating and air conditioning for their homes. This makes being an HVAC technician a secure position that will not likely be affected by many external circumstances. Therefore, the long-term job outlook is good and workers in the industry can think ahead even when they are just getting started.
Active Jobs Lead to a Healthy Lifestyle
Sitting and working at a desk can negatively affect many aspects of your health. Office work often leads to bad posture which can wreak havoc on the back, neck, and shoulders. Not only this, but hours spent looking at a computer can also cause eye problems, headaches, and more.
Those who choose to be a technician in the field of HVAC can benefit from having an active job that keeps the body healthy and the mind sharp. Studies have shown that having an active job that involves walking and frequently using your muscles can help to minimize serious illness such as diabetes, heart problems, blood pressure problems, and cancer. Keeping the body active can also cause increased oxygen flow to the brain, improving concentration.
Opportunity for Moving Up
At Boulden Brothers, there is endless opportunity to move up in the company over time. Many individuals start with long-term goals and they are able to achieve that with our company. Several of our current team members started as technicians or apprentices and now have managerial positions with amazing benefits. We want all of our employees to rise as high as they want to in the trade, and we have all of the tools, training, and resources to make this a reality.
Improve the World
The position of HVAC technician might not sound like the title of a superhero, but the truth is that when you are fixing essential home comforts such as the heater or air conditioner, you are a hero to that homeowner. While working at our company, you have the opportunity to do some good in the world and to have a positive impact on the lives of people in your community. Our client relationships are some of our most valued, and many of our technicians start with us with the goal of making the world a better place.
Not only do you serve your community by helping customers have a comfortable home, but you also help the environment, both inside and outside. Keeping heaters and air conditioners in excellent shape improve indoor air quality and help people with illnesses or asthma to stay healthy. Installing modern equipment, new filters, and energy-saving equipment such as heat pumps can help the environment by reducing carbon emissions. Many customers are excited to swap out old units for ones that use less energy, leaving less of a footprint, and save them money over time.
