Job Description for HVAC Controls Technician

An HVAC controls technician is responsible for the installation, diagnostics, and repair of heating and air conditioning equipment. Their work can be indoors, sometimes working in small spaces, or it can be outdoors in any and all weather conditions, based on the type of installation. Most buildings require the installation of an HVAC system, so all environments from personal homes to industrial facilities are possible work locations. The environments can often be very dirty, and the work heavily involves hands-on situations. Possible dangers include extreme hot or cold temperatures, potentially dangerous levels of noise, and dust. In addition to the physical work of dealing with heating and air conditioning systems, HVAC controls technicians must also be able to fill out paperwork and deal with customers.
