HVAC Schools In Georgia
Georgia is a hot sticky state of the south. No question about it. I can not guarantee that you will get a job if you become an HVAC tech in Georgia, but I can guarantee you that on any given summer day there is a heck of a lot of work for HVAC techs to do. On to the subject of what HVAC schools in Georgia you have to choose from.
The average temperatures by month in Georgia are in degrees fahrenheit are: January 45, February 49, March 56, April 63, May 70, June 77, July 80, August 79, September 74, October 64, November 56, December 48, which would give you the opinion that the temperature is quite mild. You need an air conditioner there just to get the humidity out of the house. Keep in mind, that in Greenville Georgia, on the 20th of August, in 1983, it got up to 112 degrees.
Because of the extreme use of conditioned air, HVAC licence and certification requirements in Georgia are quite stringent.
Here Are The Georgia Schools.
