HVAC is an industry acronym for “heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning.” An HVAC refrigeration technician works to install, repair, and maintain air conditioning systems for commercial and residential buildings. Additionally, they work with companies using larger industrial refrigeration systems (such as restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, and laboratories) to install new equipment and keep walk-in coolers and freezers operating at required safe temperatures. The HVAC refrigeration technician works with a number of coolant substances and processes, and they need to be familiar with relevant current and legacy technologies. The technician assesses problems with climate control and refrigeration systems and then writes up repair estimates for the customer. The technician is then expected to execute these repairs in a timely manner.
