Homes, office buildings, industrial plants, airplanes, cars and computer technology all rely on complex HVAC systems to create and maintain safe, healthy and comfortable living and working environments. Many industrial, medical, technical and commercial processes also depend on sophisticated heating, cooling air quality and ventilation systems. HVAC / FET technicians are problem solvers - experts who contribute to making equipment work better, more efficiently, quicker, and less expensively. This is the first step to acquire the skills of the HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians that how the building as a system affects the health, safety, productivity and comfort of the occupants. Also process, energy efficiency and profitability of the buildings by the incorporation of these skills in how a building operates as a system. The HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians are distinguished by promoting a holistic approach to the building as a system. The HVAC / FET Journey-Technicians effectively free the stranded energy and money that exists in buildings today.
