NATE Certification is a Good Indicator of a Great Technician

October 25, 2016 | Blog

NATE Certification is a Good Indicator of a Great TechnicianWhen you hire an HVAC company to maintain, repair or replace your home heating and cooling equipment, you’re placing your family’s comfort and safety in the hands of the technician who arrives at your door. For peace of mind that the person working on your equipment is fully trained, knowledgeable and experienced, make sure that your HVAC contractor’s technicians have NATE certification.

What is NATE?

NATE, which stands for North American Technical Excellence, is the HVAC industry’s only non-profit, voluntary testing and certification organization. It’s endorsed and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the industry-leading trade organization, Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) as well as HVAC manufacturers and equipment distributors, utility providers and industry educators.

How a Technician Becomes NATE Certified

NATE is the gold standard when it comes to HVAC technician testing. To gain certification, technicians have to pass rigorous practical exams to prove they have advanced skills and knowledge. There are separate service and installation specialty tests that cover specific areas of expertise that include air conditioning, gas heating, air distribution and more.

Benefits of NATE Certification

When you answer the door to a NATE certified technician, you can rest easy that your HVAC equipment is in good hands. NATE certification brings you other benefits too, including:

  • Dependable service. You’ll receive reliable service from a trained professional with every visit, whether it’s for routine maintenance, repairs or a new installation.
  • Optimal HVAC performance. A NATE-certified technician has the skills and knowledge to fix problems the first time and perform installations correctly. This ensures that your equipment works properly, needs fewer repairs and lasts longer.
  • Energy savings. Equipment that installed and/or maintained properly by an experienced professional can function at maximum efficiency, and this helps keep your heating and cooling costs under control.
  • Expert insight and advice. If you need questions answered or advice about any aspect of your HVAC system, a NATE-certified technician can provide accurate answers and information.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
