HVAC Investigators is looking for experienced and licensed technicians in the Des Moines and surrounding areas to join our nationwide network conducting HVAC inspections for insurance purposes. This is NOT a full time job, it's an opportunity to make some extra income that doesn't cost you anything to join our team, just 30-40 minutes of your time to complete our on-boarding program to become approved! Once placed in our network, we then contact you when assigned to conduct an inspection in your area to obtain your availability and schedule accordingly!

We are a nationwide company looking for reliable, experienced and licensed HVAC technicians that are interested in supplemental, contract work inspecting HVAC equipment when involved in insurance claims to help determine the true cause and extent of damage. Every day, hundreds of insurance claims are filed for both residential and commercial HVAC equipment. The problem that the insurance companies are running into is this: the stated type of damage that is being filed is not actually the legitimate cause of damage, which leaves them paying far beyond what is required. For example, someone with a 15 year old unit files a claim with their insurance company for lightning damage when, in reality, their system is old and has failed due to wear and tear OR their local contractor has given them a quote to replace their entire system when actually all that is needed is a $200 part.

Responsibilities and Duties

Our HVAC technicians work with us an independent contractors. We're not looking for someone to commit to 40 hours a week - this is supplemental work that can be scheduled to fit your availability! Our scheduling department will be working with you to coordinate a time that works for both you and the home/business owner. We ask that you take photos, document all readings, and be very thorough in your inspection so that we can deliver A+ reports to our insurance carriers explaining the damages along with repair vs. replacement options helping them settle claims more accurately and fairly.

Qualifications and Skills

All of our technicians are required to be insured and HVAC licensed in their state or municipality (if required by the state or municipality), hold an active EPA Type 2 or Universal certification, pass a criminal, felony & misdemeanor background check, and have a minimum of 5 years practical residential and commercial HVAC trouble-shooting and repair field experience.


It's no cost to you to join, you get to choose your schedule and decide if you want to accept the assignment or not based on your current workload. You work full time, no problem - help us out nights and weekends to earn some extra income!

If you're looking for additional income and want to be part of an elite network of technicians, there is certainly a place for you on our team! We pay a flat rate per diagnosis that you complete.
