We’ve written about it extensively in other posts, so we won’t spend too much time on it (you can see the rest of our posts for more information). Essentially, electricians install and maintain equipment that brings electricity to industrial centers, commercial places, and residential homes. There are a few different types of electricians, namely: wireman, residential wireman, outside lineman, and telecommunication electrician. They have many responsibilities, including reading blueprints, installing and maintaining wiring, using measuring devices to check how the systems are performing, and using national electrical codes to ensure that buildings are operating safely and efficiently.
HVAC is short for “Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning.” HVAC technicians install and maintain equipment that transmits heat, oxygen and cool air through a building. In any building you enter, there are vents and heating systems that you can see, but the building’s infrastructure has plenty of heating and ventilation. HVACs are an important system in residential homes, but also in commercial spaces that are open to the public and industrial centers that produce chemicals and gas.
Verdict: Tie. Both the electrician and the HVAC technology work with systems that are crucial to all types of building.
