Gas Appliance Service Technicians can service and repair gas-fired residential and commercial appliances. They work with appliances such as dryers, furnaces, stoves, air-conditioning units and fireplaces. They may diagnose problems and use specialized tools to determine issues. They can provide estimates, assist customers with questions about the appliances and prepare work orders. Students may go on to become self-employed or work for residential or commercial repair companies.
