The Sunshine State is well-named. Florida is consistently one of the hottest states in the Union year after year, and it is the overall warmest state year-round. Heating, cooling and hot water accounts for the majority of energy use in Florida homes (55-58%). The majority of that cost goes into cooling. This varies a lot in different parts of the state, though. In north Florida, where Jacksonville is, cooling makes up over 20%, but in the south it can make up 40% of energy use. Central Florida has middling temperatures, and reflecting that cooling costs make up about 30% of energy use. Heating is a significant contributor to energy use mainly in northern Florida where it can take up 15% of energy use. In the south it adds relatively little to energy usage at just 2%. Other energy costs go into lighting, refrigeration, and other electrical appliances.

With such hot days and such high cooling loads across the state, HVAC is a major industry in Florida, servicing residences, office buildings, stores and entertainment venues, restaurants, and more structures across the state.

HVAC Demand Stays Strong in Florida

HVACR isn’t a need that goes away. With new technologies and innovations, there are new products constantly emerging on the market that run more efficiently and consume less energy. Older systems, which gradually lose efficiency over time, need to be periodically serviced or retrofitted. There is a constant need for HVACR technicians who know how to maintain older systems while also being able to recommend new systems with improved performance. In fact, it is projected that from 2010-2020, HVACR will experience a growth rate of 34%.

Challenges Resisting a Humid Climate

In addition to having many warming days, Florida also has a humid environment, making it a necessity for many establishments (restaurants, hotels, museums, etc.) to have a moisture removal system in place. Moisture within HVACR systems or otherwise present in a building may encourage mold growth and result in damaged property and illness in occupants. This side of the industry adds more importance to the role of HVACR technicians in Florida.

Consistent Incoming Population

In Florida, there is a steady influx of residents who move from other areas of the country. Trying to escape from frigid or windy conditions, many Americans choose to relocate to Florida after retirement or set up a second home there. With sustained new construction and home maintenance, HVAC technicians in Florida have a secure future in the area.
