According to NASA, this past May was one of the warmest months ever on record for the planet! The average temperature was 1.38 degrees above average. Studies show that with the continual increase of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, the average temperatures will also increase, as well as the intensity of heat waves. But have no fear – HVAC is here! HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort to keep everyone cool and comfortable during this scorching summer.
Why The World Would End Without HVAC!
After experiencing the hottest month on record, and with possibly one of the warmest summers on the way, there has never been a better time to aspire to become an HVAC Systems Technician. The Freedonia Group reports that the global demand for HVAC equipment is forecasted to increase by 5.7% from 2013-2018 (and is projected to reach $120 billion worth of equipment by 2018).
With a slowly recovering housing market and recession, North America is expected to experience the most growth in HVAC equipment sales by the year 2018. What does that mean? HVAC equipment is usually installed when a new home is built or a house is sold. Someone has to get paid to maintain, repair, and inspect this equipment. HVAC Systems Technicians install this equipment and will likely be needed to meet the increased demand of equipment sales.
