Why Should You Consider the Trades?

While many career paths require years of spending lots of money on schooling, the plumbing and HVACR fields allow you to be trained on the job, and making money. Not only do skilled tradespeople begin to earn while they are at the apprentice level, they also forgo significant tuition payments and debt from student loans because all of their instruction is hands-on and done while on the job.

Opportunity for Advancing Your Career

Choosing a career as a skilled tradesperson presents you with an exciting professional path that promises job security and excellent earnings potential. Along with these great perks, hardworking tradespeople are rewarded with high advancement potential within their field. From any starting point in the plumbing or HVACR industries, you can climb the career ladder to gain more responsibility and ultimately make more money.

Salary Expectations and Job Outlook

Becoming a skilled tradesperson in the plumbing or HVAC fields has great earning potential.

Plumbers – Average pay for plumbers in 2019 was $59,800 per year. Employment of plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is projected to grow 4 percent from 2019 to 2029. Building construction, maintenance, and repair should drive demand for these workers, and overall job opportunities are expected to be good. (www.bls.gov)

HVACR Technicians – The average annual wage for heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers was $51,420 in 2019. Commercial and residential building construction is expected to drive employment growth, and job opportunities for HVACR technicians are expected to be good. Candidates familiar with electronics and those with good troubleshooting skills will have the best job opportunities as employers continue to have difficulty finding qualified technicians to install, maintain, and repair complex new systems. (www.bls.gov)

Opportunities for overtime, commission, and bonuses can increase annual salary to over $70,000 per year, according to www.payscale.com. Larger metropolitan areas will also pay higher salaries. Time magazine points out that plumbers are in high demand in major metropolitan areas such as New York, LA, Chicago, and Boston and can make up to $250,000 per year.

I am so thankful for BTAC and the guys they sent out to repair a major hot and cold water leak under our slab. They knew what they were doing, and were very professional and polite, and I might add compassionate. They are an asset to the company!

To the credit of BTAC and it's management, I had a frustrating experience with them on a call out for a problem with a blower motor. I made my opinion known and contacted them through email to express it. They responded, sent out new technicians and made it right. That doesn't happen very often these days, and it's good to see a company show it cares about that. If you call these folks to come out, and your experience is what you expected, let them know, they'll work with you. 👍

I'm new to the Lubbock area and Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning was the first company we called. They had someone at our house to help in an hour and the service man had our AC fixed in 30 minutes. Their customer service was great from the receptionist who answered the phone to the hvac professional who fixed our AC!
