    Wondering if its the right path

    I've worked a little with heating and cooling systems in the past as a maintenance mechanic, and loved it. After talking to a retired tech he convinced me into at least looking into this career path. I have some questions, and wondering if you guys would help me decide if this is right path.

    What is the for an apprentice/journeyman HVAC tech?

    What Union does it fall under?

    Whats the job market in texas looking like for HVAC?

    Do you enjoy your decision?

    What are the tools needed, or does the company usually furnish them?

    Any insight would be helpful. Thanks guys.
