HVAC system

HVAC technicians work on heating, ventilation, cooling, and refrigeration systems in homes, buildings and facilities of all sizes. By providing a climate controlled environment, these heating and cooling systems make it possible to control indoor temperatures, humidity levels and air quality. Knowing how to operate HVAC systems is a valuable skill, one many companies struggle to fill with experienced technicians.

Southern Air’s HVAC apprenticeship program teaches students installation techniques, troubleshooting and repair methods. We will teach you everything from operating hand tools to more sophisticated tools such as carbon monoxide testers. Furthermore, our program teaches students the importance of conservation, recovery and recycling of refrigerants.
