But wait, what's the difference between an HVAC Service Technician and a Startup Technician?

The skillsets are very similar, but there are some notable differences.

  • Startup does not require on-call hours.
  • Startup Technicians work to install unit accessories and prep units for in-house or factory startup on construction job sites, versus existing occupied facilities.
  • Startup Technicians do not perform Preventative Maintenance.
  • Startup Projects require more focus on relationship development with the General Contractor along with customer service. Startup of new equipment could span multiple months.
  • Startup requires more attention to detail and paperwork, as well as dealing with manufacturer requirements and/or defects, and coordination with construction Project Management teams.
  • Most Startup will have more communication with BAS controls teams, electricians, and fire alarm contractors.
  • Flexible hours, while still offering a full workweek with overtime opportunities.
Essential Duties
  • Performs pre-functional inspections/checklists and start-up of commercial HVAC systems.
  • Performs installation, diagnostic, and repairs on systems at the time of startup and warranty period.

  • Documents work by completing all paperwork on each job for each piece of equipment.
  • Assist installation mechanics in completing and mounting of field-installed devices on equipment prior to start-up as needed.
  • Troubleshoot issues as they arise.
