Difference between an HVAC contractor and an HVAC repairman?

An HVAC contractor may not have the correct equipment or parts to perform a complicated repair.

They may only provide a band-aid fix to your HVAC problem, which can only result in a bigger HVAC problem.

An HVAC contractor mostly looks for contracts to design and install HVAC systems to buildings. If a project is small, a contractor may do all the work but will need to hire a team of technicians for larger projects. Therefore, an HVAC contractor is a business that tasks its technicians with the installation, maintenance, and repair of HVAC systems. An HVAC repairman is also known as an HVAC technician. An HVAC technician or repairman could be a licensed technician or working or in the middle of paid apprenticeship. An apprentice repairman is a full-time HVAC contractor, while a licensed technician may be hired to work with a contractor on larger projects. A fully licensed repairman is capable of doing all the HVAC work on their own. They may find freelance work on their own as technicians and are the ones you will call when your refrigerator, your furnace, or air conditioner malfunctions. They have the skills and training needed to install your HVAC system. A contractor hires an apprentice repairman(technician) to do routine maintenance on HVAC systems. Thus aN HVAC repairman has the experience and skills to properly diagnose and repair your HVAC system. An HVAC contractor will look for commercial or residential contracts and outsource to his employees or hire freelance repairmen to install HVAC systems.
