Those in this position must have extensive knowledge of HVAC design for buildings, as they will be developing the entire layout for the system and installing it afterward. To be an HVAC engineer, one must have vast knowledge of a variety of programs, load calculations, and building codes, and know how to use and implement HVAC equipment. These engineers work primarily indoors while a building's main structure is established, and then arrive with a developed plan to install the HVAC system/s.
An HVAC engineer is generally the supervisor of his/her department and works regularly with other engineers and technicians to install systems and ensure they are running properly. Those in this position work normal business hours, commonly from 9 AM to 5 PM.
A career as an HVAC engineer can be stressful due to the extensive calculation and planning required to install these systems, but it can be a very rewarding profession if those in this position can stay focused and help everyone work together to achieve their company's goals.
