Unlocking the Potential of the HVAC Industry for Career Success

The demand for HVAC solutions came into broad view during the COVID-19 pandemic. The industry thrived during this period and continues to do so, heading into 2023. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts steady growth of HVAC industry jobs through 2029. The is lots of potential in the HVAC industry with excellent pay and career advancement opportunities, those looking for a rewarding career in a hot market, even when dealing with cold.

That’s the path one mechanical engineering major who saw the potential in the HVAC industry took, and he hasn’t looked back. Stillman Jordan, President at ENCON Heating & AC, started working in furniture sales to pay the bills while going through college. He didn’t know then that those sales skills would help land him his first job at a small engineering water treatment company.

How Jordan got to ENCON is one of many mysteries Hosts Greg Crumpton and Tyler Kern unraveled when they spoke with Jordan on Straight Outta Crumpton.

Now that Jordan’s heading ENCON, it’s up to him to determine how to marry his qualities and philosophies to ensure ENCON’s continued success.

“It’s a delicate balance,” Jordan said. “You do have to honor the past, the business has been here for over fifty years, but you also have to know that the world is constantly changing. We’re in a highly competitive industry, so you must bob and weave with the changes.”

Throughout their conversation, Kern, Crumpton, and Jordan discuss…

● How the HVAC industry can continue to get young people excited about joining
the industry

● The stability and opportunity within the HVAC industry

● Connecting the dots of how HVAC plays a vast role in multiple areas

“Originally, I thought I wanted to be an astronaut, and I was not super intrigued about the heating and air conditioning world,” Jordan said. “And it wasn’t until I got into it and started hitting all the different parts of it that I got sucked in. I was hooked.” Stillman Jordan is a mechanical engineer by trade with an MBA from UMass Amherst. Jordan began his journey with ENCON Heating & AC in 2015 and became president in September 2022. In his new role, Stillman seeks to chart the company’s path for the next three to five years and ensure ECON’s success for the foreseeable future.
