There’s an old joke about Arkansas weather having three seasons: January, February, and summer. There’s another one about Arkansans running their heating and air conditioning at different times during the same day. Whatever the case, we can all agree that our household comfort systems are extremely important. As anyone who’s ever had an air conditioner quit working in the middle of summer will tell you, they would pay almost anything to someone who can get it restored quickly. If you’re an individual who’s looking for a high-paying career, it definitely gets you thinking. In fact, According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov) new openings in the HVAC industry will increase by 21 percent through 2022, and there are presently thousands of unfilled HVAC jobs available throughout the United States. HVAC technicians earn a median income of nearly $44,000 annually, with some earning over $70,000 a year.
