Skilled Trades

Because home systems have become increasingly complex, technicians need to seek out postsecondary instruction from technical schools or community colleges that offer programs in skilled trades, such as electrical, heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration. These programs generally last from 6 months to 2 years and lead to a certificate or an associate's degree. Most states further require electricians to pass a test and be licensed before they may work independently. Requirements vary by state. For more information, contact your local or state licensing board.

The majority of HVAC technicians worked full time in 2021. Evening or weekend shifts may be required, and HVACR technicians often work overtime or irregular hours during peak heating and cooling seasons. Employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to grow 15 percent over the next decade.

Fix a Leaky Toilet

See how easy it is to fix a running toilet with this helpful video. A leaking toilet is typically caused by either a faulty fill valve or flapper. Learn how to diagnose the problem and what steps to take to correct the issue.

Tile a Bathroom Floor

Lowe's walks you through tiling a bathroom floor step by step in this how-to-video project. It's important to note that when using cement board as an underlayment, you should use modified mortar.

Drywall Repairs

Watch how to patch and repair a hole or cracks in drywall or sheetrock with these simple steps. Don't try regular joint compound over mesh tape, and always use fast setting mud, or you increase the risk of it cracking.

Home Inspection

Jim Davis, Houston's home inspector, recently inspected a newly renovated investment property.

Hardwood Flooring

When working on the floor, have a cushion or some cardboard under you. Wearing work boots may scratch the floor, as real wood shows dents or scratches clearly.

Construction Jobs

Heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers held about 362,900 jobs in 2021. The median annual wage for heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers was $49,910. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $35,440, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $78,350. Apprentices usually earn lower wages until they gain experience.
