This works out to about $24 per hour if the specialist is working a 40-hour week.
For about 25 years I have worked in numerous roles in the HVAC industries & during that time, I lived in a few odd cities throughout the country… One of those cities includes Phoenix AZ, where I had the most success working in the HVAC industry… Due to the weather in Phoenix, there is a high demand for HVAC repair & for the device & parts… In fact, the state of AZ ranks in the top 5 when it comes to the demand for HVAC workers & the parts & device are in high demand as well, and the weather has a lot to do with the HVAC demand, & with Phoenix being one of the hottest cities in the country, HVAC specialists can make a wonderful residing here. In fact, the starting salary for HVAC specialists in Phoenix is around $50k per year. This works out to about $24 per hour if the specialist is working a 40-hour week. There is potential to acquire lots of overtime, especially during the Summer which is the busiest season during the year, and the HVAC industry is steadily growing which means there is more potential to make more currency. Being an HVAC specialist is not an easy job in Phoenix because the weather can be unforgiving! So, in my opinion, & with my 25-year knowledge in the HVAC industry, I suppose the specialists should be making more currency. Afterall, HVAC will consistently be around, & it is a multi-billion dollar industry that experienced tremendous growth every year, but not to mention that the specialists risk their lives to make sure that the residents of Phoenix can be comfortable in their homes.
