A Growing Need for Trained HVAC/R Mechanics and Installers

Employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to grow 13% in Rhode Island and 19% in Massachusetts from 2020 to 2030*, much faster than the average for all occupations. Repair and replacement of HVACR systems is a large part of what technicians do. Climate-control systems generally need replacement after 10 to 15 years. The growing emphasis on energy efficiency and pollution reduction is likely to increase the demand for HVACR technicians as climate-control systems are retrofitted, upgraded, or replaced entirely.

Job opportunities for HVACR technicians are expected to be excellent, particularly for those who have completed training at an accredited technical school or through an apprenticeship. Candidates familiar with computer tablets and electronics, as well as those who have developed troubleshooting skills, will have the best job opportunities as employers continue to have difficulty finding qualified technicians to install, maintain, and repair complex new systems.1
