HVAC Technician

This is the person who comes to your home for HVAC service. He or she has the responsibility of repairing or replacing a unit. The tech is also the person who performs routine maintenance to prevent issues in the future.

System Designer or Engineer

A designer or engineer is the one responsible for creating designs for units. This person finds ways to improve an HVAC system so that it runs as effectively as possible. Generally, a designer or engineer has a background in HVAC already and then furthers his or her education to earn a degree in mechanical engineering.

HVAC Owners and Supervisors

An HVAC owner or supervisor is in charge of all of the technicians. Sometimes, they handle the financial aspect and marketing. Typically, the owner or supervisor isn’t the one who performs the work of repairing, replacing, or maintaining the unit. This individual is the one who handles the “behind-the-scenes” office work associated with the HVAC industry.
