Due to increased industry growth and retirements, supply of workers is not meeting demand
September 22, 2015
The HVACR Workforce Development Foundation (WDF) released three new reports and an accompanying executive summary confirming that demand outstrips the supply of HVACR workers. In particular, technicians and installers are in critical shortage in most areas of the nation.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that 86,600 HVAC technician jobs will become available through 2018. The industry is projected to grow at a rate of 34 percent over the next 10 years. But, the question remains, what are employers looking for and do the applicants have it?
