Heat Vent A/C Mech Spec - 70402
The HVAC Mechanic Specialist covers a broader range of activity than the HVAC Mechanic. The Specialist also applies a greater degree of technical specialty to HVAC work. These workers are responsible for diagnosing HVAC problems independently, and advising HVAC Mechanics on more difficult assignments. They establish priorities for various phases of their work assignments, requiring little guidance from a Lead or Supervisor.
In addition to performing the work of HVAC Mechanics at the maintenance level,
- Perform complex troubleshooting of HVAC systems, including functional analysis
- Install, test, troubleshoot, and service all types of industrial HVAC instrumentation and control systems
- Modify complex HVAC instrumentation and control systems to improve system functionality
- Accomplish difficult repairs that may involve customizing parts to serve in old systems where replacement parts are no longer available
- Analyze and maintain diverse HVAC systems at optimal operating efficiency
- Test, adjust, and balance HVAC systems
- Establish and maintain proactive maintenance of full range of HVAC systems
- Respond effectively to critical repair situations, such as environmental systems that impact research viability
- Install and modify duct systems
- Support state-of-the-art HVAC systems, requiring specialized and extensive training
- May perform specialized functions related to air quality (such as IAQ testing and reporting; or the testing, adjusting, balancing and certifying of laboratory fume hoods)
- May write reports and certification documents.
- Note: Must hold a R410A certification
In addition to the qualifications for the HVAC Mechanic Maintenance, the Specialist must have extensive working knowledge of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Typically these positions involve complex trouble-shooting and problemsolving skills that have developed over many years, but they may also require specialized training in emerging HVAC technologies. The Specialists require high level testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) skills. They are required to have EPA certification, at least at the level of class III, although many jobs will require certification as a Universal Technician.
