Green Career Spotlight: HVAC Engineer

A large amount of the energy consumed in the United States goes to heating and cooling buildings. A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that runs well reduces energy consumption and saves money. HVAC engineers design and build these systems. To figure out what is needed, they meet building owners, run simulations, and review construction plans. But it’s not just about working with numbers. Interpersonal, communication, and problem solving skills are vital to succeed in this career.
