Our Story

Owners Dave and Jack first came up with the idea of the New England Institute of HVAC more than 15 years ago. They knew there was a better and faster way to teach the basics of HVAC than the institution they themselves had attended, so they set about creating a hands-on curriculum built on a combined 45 years of experience between them both.

They brought their experience and knowledge together to form the New England Institute of HVAC, based in Lowell MA. They wanted students to be able to obtain their HVAC licenses after taking a condensed curriculum of just 13 weeks, with courses taught by leading technicians in the field. Today, they continue to change lives and the community, one student at a time.

We are the New England Institute of HVAC and we are a trusted hands-on training program that prepares students just like you for a career in the HVAC industry.

Look at what past students are saying...

New England HVAC Institute is a positive life changing course. It is an accelerated program, and teaches students the curriculum necessary to implement skills you need on the job. Shortly after completing the course, one of the teachers directed me to a suitable position within a local HVAC company, of which I am now employed. I cannot say enough about the level of quality and effort the teachers here put into there work of helping students succeed.

Great school. Jack and Dave are great instructors. I came into the HVAC field blind and came out of that class with so much knowledge. They help you get your EPA certification. I got a job during the 11th week. I watched these 2 instructors not give up on any student. Even students that had already mentally given up! I would recommend this school to new technicians and experienced technicians who need a refresh on troubleshooting!

Daniel Craig

I started the 13 week program at New England Institute of HVAC with no prior knowledge or experience in the trade. In just that short time the teachers taught me more than I could imagine. I felt that I got a ton of hands on work well still doing book work to get a better understanding of how the systems and their parts operate and how to fix them. Most of all the learning environment is comfortable which makes learning easy but the teachers still push you and test your knowledge to show you how this profession can and will be stressful. I have 0 regrets choosing this school I had a blast going there, you'd be able tell to right away that these guys love to do this and all they want is for the students to succeed.
