Air conditioning and refrigeration systems are an intricate part of the success of almost every business. Air conditioning systems are responsible for controlling the temperature, humidity, and the total air quality in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. Refrigeration systems make it possible to store and transport food, medicine, and other perishable items. This is a skilled occupation that requires qualified technicians to install, maintain, and repair such systems.
