    Seimens and J C I are union shops in most areas. Seimens require that you have training every year in our area. If you are just starting out in Hvac you probably have lot more to learn. But good luck

    Your list looks pretty good. In some areas like ours controls and service are separate Controls are not union and service is union. I'm sure it's not the same everywhere.

    Ice man what experience do you have?? Your pay will reflect your experience. I think you should have a bit of HVAC knowledge, after all most of your controls work will be HVAC and sequences that control them.

    njfranco OUT!

    Yeah if it worked that way. Unfortunately in today's market it seems many of us wear many hats. Hopefully we get the biggest hat's pay.

    I recently switched to controls from mechanic. I took a hit in pay just to get into controls but im at 45k with no controls experience but 6+ years mechanic. My company pays our techs 65-90k with 5+ years experience. In Florida that is.
