Job Description for HVAC Mechanical Engineer

HVAC mechanical engineers are involved in almost every phase of a project. They begin with customer consultations and preexisting condition assessments, then assisting with sales departments in choosing appropriate customer solutions. After that, they work with the design teams to create the custom concept and maintain contact with the installation teams for troubleshooting and system upkeep throughout the lifetime of the system. An HVAC mechanical engineer typically works during regular business hours, although they often need emergency on-call availability. Occasional travel is necessary. While much of their work is done in an office, HVAC mechanical engineering often requires field work and being on-site for inspections.
