When you need to replace or service your home’s HVAC equipment, the last thing you want to do is worry about whether or not the contractor or technician you hire will be up to the job. To take the guesswork out of hiring an HVAC professional, all you need to do is look for NATE certification.
NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence. It is an elective designation which the HVAC industry’s best technicians, installation and maintenance professionals can earn in addition to their mandatory state licenses. Earning NATE certification is very difficult, requiring professionals to pass a rigorous series of examinations that test their knowledge of advanced-level system design, maintenance and installation concepts.
The NATE program was created by the HVAC industry to give consumers a reliable and fast way to identify the very best products and service providers. It has been implemented across all levels of the industry, right from the manufacturers who design and build HVAC equipment down to the technicians who install and repair it.
As a consumer, you stand to benefit in many ways from hiring a technician with NATE certification. Because of their superior skills and advanced knowledge, they are able to avoid the problems which can arise from improper design and installation. HVAC equipment that’s installed by a NATE-certified professional also runs more efficiently, which can save you money on your utility bills and help you avoid costly repairs and service calls. If you want the job done right the first time, insist on hiring a professional with NATE certification.
