Mechanical contractors work with almost anything that involves mechanical parts or machinery in a home or building. They perform mechanical repairs, install equipment and systems, as well as provide customization or alteration of mechanical systems to meet a customer’s needs. Mechanical contractors often work for companies that provide a range of services for their customers, including plumbing, piping, heating, refrigeration and air conditioning. Some may also have acquired skills and expertise in electrical work, carpentry or masonry. They may also coordinate or bring in resources for electrical work, carpentry and masonry and often oversee the work to ensure the project is completed according to the company’s standards.
Several states require or strongly encourage that mechanical contractors pass exams demonstrating their expertise and maintain a certification. Often, part of keeping their certification active, mechanical contractors may have to periodically add to their skill set with continuing education and training. The national trade organization for mechanical contractors is the Mechanical Contractors Association of America. Once they have achieved mechanical mastery, some mechanical contractors continue their learning to specialize in particular areas like energy-efficiency and energy-efficient systems, including geothermal systems and other cutting edge technology.
Mechanical contractors help ensure all of the mechanical systems in your home or business, like HVAC and commercial refrigeration units, are in optimal working condition. From repairing the smallest part in your home’s heat pump system to installing large HVAC systems for entire office buildings, mechanical contractors are the go-to specialists to keep everyone comfortable.
