The Skills of an Engineer

Air conditioning is the height of comfort in the modern world, it makes the heat of summer bearable and keeps buildings at an ambient temperature. But, sometimes things can go wrong with your air conditioning unit. When this happens you need to call in the aid of an air conditioning engineer. It’s important that you know you are getting the best possible service, so your engineer needs to embody all of the important qualities of an air conditioning engineer.
So, what does it take to be an excellent air conditioning engineer and provide the best service possible?

The Work

An engineer who specialises in air conditioning can deal with two specific areas; either refrigeration or air conditioning. More specifically, this could mean the design, installation and maintenance of refrigerators in supermarkets, restaurants, hospitals and factories, or installing and servicing air conditioning units in similar establishments. Both of these responsibilities could encompass a number of duties:

• Surveying the building where a unit is to be installed.
• Discussing requirements with customers.
• Producing quotes.
• Maintaining quality checks.
• Assessing and fixing faulty units.
• Carrying out any and all maintenance work.

Being able to advise on how to reduce energy consumption with both refrigeration and air conditioning is also an important part of this role, as the need to reduce emissions becomes more and more apparent.

Skills Needed

What are the skills that are essential for this role? They include:

• Practical skills.
• Methodical approach.
• Team working skills.
• Problem-solving.
• Willingness to adapt.
• A head for working in confined spaces.
• Accurate measurements and calculations.

A precise work method with a head for engineering is obviously an essential skill an engineer should have.

Love of the Work

Of course, at the end of the day, a desire and drive to be an air conditioning engineer are at the heart of delivering amazing service.
