Pay by Experience Level for HVAC Control Systems Technician

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $47K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $56K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $67K in this role. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $73K.
