HVAC Apprentice Technician

Do you like finding and fixing mechanical problems? Talking to people and creating solutions for them that can make their homes safer and more efficient? We have great news for you

Do you believe that you have what it takes to become a great professional HVAC Technician? Maybe you feel you aren't using your talents properly. Or maybe you are looking for a career that can't be outsourced. We are going to invest in YOUR training and give you the tools to make it happen.

Are you looking to get into the HVAC field? An HVAC Technician Apprentice is your path to start. You would be responsible for learning and assisting in all areas performing Preventive Maintenance on residential heating and air conditioning equipment. This is the first step on the path to becoming a qualified HVAC Technician. And best of all, we have developed a company paid training program to guide you through the entire process. This includes both hands on, classroom and in the field training to reach the status of HVAC Technician.

We are a fast-growing family owned, local company and do much more than just HVAC. Our problem is that we have too many opportunities and not enough techs!

For the right candidate, if you follow our proven plan with our guidance and support, you will become a full-fledged HVAC Technician capable working on all residential heating and air conditioning equipment, educating the customer, and helping them to have a safer and more comfortable home.

We provide 90 days of PAID initial training. After successfully completing that, you will be assigned a Company vehicle which is fully stocked with the parts you will normally need.

We will continue this support and training to help you reach your goal of becoming a fully certified HVAC Technician and to control your income through both a pay scale that pays you for what your achievements are not your time in grade and a generous commission program.

You will be evaluating, maintaining, and repairing the following things:

  • Residential heating equipment including oil, gas or propane fired. This includes both furnaces and boilers.
  • Residential Air conditioning and heat pumps
  • Ductless systems
  • Water heaters
  • Indoor air quality equipment.
  • You will not be working on roof top units or geothermal systems.

This is where you will be working: New Castle County DE, Cecil County MD and Southern Delaware and Chester Counties in PA

Our Values in Action:

  • We Get it Right. Guaranteed.: That's our tagline. Do you read that, and think 'Yeah, that's what it should be!'? If so, we want to talk with you.
  • We Care About Our Customers: We are a 24/7 business. Everyone here helps with that. A set rotational schedule with occasional evening and weekend availability is required for everyone, not because we want to run calls then, but because we care about our customers, their safety, and their health. All technicians share in this rotation, and it normally occurs every eight weeks. If that is you, we want to have you on our team.
  • We Background Check Everyone: Since we walk into customer homes, as a company we want to make sure we send in the right people, so we background check ALL of our personnel. If you like that as a selling point, then let us know when we can schedule yours to get the ball rolling.
