Hello folks, I am an automotive technician and my trade is no longer able to create the income that it used to be able to, due to the fact that the job is commission, the economy is slow, it is more affordable to finance a new car when your warranty has expired than to repair it, etc. I came to these forums to find out how the HVAC trade is holding up in our current economy. What fields of HVAC are the most lucrative? How should I approach learning the trade (trade school, college, etc)? What questions should I be asking myself before I get into this trade? Any useful information that you can provide would be much appreciated.
