Solving the HVACR Technician Shortage

 
Michael Cassity
Cold Craft, Inc. took the lead some time ago not only to align the firm with the local HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and Refrigeration) school but to promote the activities of programs and training held at the school such as Energy Upgrade California.  
 
Cold Craft's Founder and President teaches at the local HVACR school and that is one reason why Cold Craft is not short any technicians, installers or other key personnel.  
 
We agree with this article from Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration NEWS, that HVAC contractors need to reach out to the local schools to support the new HVACR students.  If you are in the San Jose, CA area and need HVACR assistance whether commercial or residential, please call us... 408.374.7292.

Relationships with Local Institutions May Help Bridge the Gap

November 17, 2014
  
Michael Cassity

Even the most conservative estimates put the current shortage of HVACR technicians at 20,000, and this number says nothing of the shortage of qualified HVACR technicians. This massive shortage, which has plagued contractors for several years, is only projected to get worse in the future. The primary reason for this lack of technical workers is that bright, ambitious, young people have been overly conditioned to think of the trades as a lesser calling compared to the more popular career paths, such as computer programming, application design, investment banking, etc. Today, it is not very often that young people with the whole of their professional lives ahead of them are seriously debating whether to enter into an executive training program at Goldman Sachs or to become a maintenance technician at their local HVAC company. Why? Because they have been brainwashed to believe the trades do not offer sexy and glamorous careers. More on that later.

No doubt that the Pineapple Express weather that the west coast is experiencing can dump a large volume of water on us.  While many are looking up to the roof to make sure it is solid, there is another issue that may be lurking underfoot and that is the crawl space or even basements in the home.
