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. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $37K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $48K. HVAC Service Technicians with Electronic Troubleshooting skills claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $52K. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $60K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
