AC work vs Electrical, Electric and AC

1357 7
I know AC work has 80%+ of electric. In addition, would you recommend getting into the AC business after completing an electrical apprentice? Or just focus on the electric trade as a contractor?

nothing wrong with taking some HVAC after you completed your electric f courses, throw some business in construction management courses in with it. also if you don't have much residential experience donate as much time as you can to Habitat for Humanity. help them frame wall, maybe help them with electrical, whatever they can use it for help. donate a couple weekends a month for a couple years. also there's contractors on site you may get jobs through.

take multiple business classes
take multiple construction management classes
many times you can take the stuff at night while you're working during the day

if you lack residential experience do the Habitat for Humanity thing.
go two Saturdays a month and you will get a lot of experience in residential framing, Electrical it will be good residential experience for you.
