If you are in the market for a new career in Santa Fe, you may want to consider technical training to become a heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration professional, also known as HVAC or HVACR, at a technical or vocational school.

HVACR Career Outlook in Santa Fe
In Santa Fe, the outlook for HVACR positions has been steadily increasing with continuous growth projected in this field for years to come. This projection is based on three specific factors including tourism, population growth, and average temperatures.
Tourism is a large part of the Santa Fe economy, increasing the need for trained HVAC professionals. Commercial HVACR systems need regular maintenance and repairs to support the facilities and businesses that provide products and services to the tourists.
Over the last nine years, Santa Fe saw a population increase of over 14%. Population growth raises the number of homes bought and sold, increasing the need for residential HVAC services and providers. In response to the growth, new businesses enter. Once again, there is a need for trained commercial HVACR professionals to service these new businesses.
In Santa Fe, heating and air conditioning units are in use for part or all of eleven months out of the year. Three months out of the year, the city has average temperatures that rise to 80 degrees or higher, while average low temperatures can reach below 40 degrees during 8 months of that same year. Considering the average temperatures, there are over 300 days a year that heating and cooling systems could be used as a comfort measure.
