You might have questions about what HVAC is and what type of future HVAC specialists have given advances in technology and other factors. One thing that is fairly clear is that there will be people working in the HVAC industry for decades to come.

What is HVAC?

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. It’s how homes and businesses are heated, cooled and ventilated. Your home’s furnace and air conditioner are HVAC equipment. As homes have become tightly sealed due to advances in construction, homes nowadays have mechanical ventilation.

Logan's Heating & Cooling is an example of an HVAC firm. We are based in Clinton, MO, and install, service and repair HVAC systems.

The Future of HVAC Specialists

HVAC specialists are in high demand. It is expected that demand for them will increase through at least 2026. One of the reasons for this is that technology keeps getting introduced into the HVAC industry. HVAC systems are getting smarter and more efficient than ever before.

People in many lines of work are concerned about being replaced by automation or robots. HVAC specialists don’t have to be concerned about this. They do need more training than ever, though, to keep up with advances in technology.

IoT Increasingly a Part of HVAC Systems

IoT stands for the Internet of Things. Both residential and commercial HVAC systems are increasingly connected to the internet. There are HVAC systems that have sensors that automatically change a home’s temperature based on whether it’s occupied or if people are asleep, for example. HVAC technicians need to keep up with this technology so that their skills remain relevant.
