Sectors Served by the Sheet Metal Profession

A Diverse Range of Opportunities

Sheet metal and air conditioning work is so much more than installing an HVAC unit. In fact, the industry represents contractors across four main sectors – Architectural, Industrial, Commercial, Residential – all of which have a positive impact on how we live, work and play.

Each sector has an important role in delivering clean, energy-efficient air Americans breathe in offices, homes, hospitals; designing and constructing many of the attractive facades you see on today’s stadiums and office buildings; providing safe and effective ventilation for the industry; and providing comfortable, healthy and safe living environments.

With diverse paths, competitive benefits and salaries, and hands-on learning opportunities, it’s an exciting time to pursue a career in the industry. Learn more about each of the core sectors below.
