Even as the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry becomes more high-tech, there are still things a person has to do. Technology has allowed units to run more efficiently and give owners more control about when and how long they can run. This also forces HVAC technicians to continuously improve on their skills, a reason why Ultimate Air in Luxemburg has its employees put in 100 hours of training every year. Owner Jeff Blemke says working in the field as an HVAC technician can be very rewarding.
Blemke says being mechanically inclined and personable are important traits for HVAC technicians. According to GlassDoor, the average salary for an HVAC technician in Wisconsin is around $39,000. This is part of a continuing series on careers available in Door and Kewaunee counties.
