Whether you need an emergency repair for an air conditioner or a new heating system installation, choosing the right HVAC company to handle the task can be a daunting prospect. You want to make sure that the technician you invite into your home or business is trustworthy and has the skills and experience to get the job done. NATE certification offers you the assurance that your heating and cooling repairs, services and installations are performed by trained professionals with a real-world working knowledge of HVAC systems.
What Is NATE?
In 1997, a coalition of leaders in the HVAC industry founded the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) organization in order to develop a testing and certification program that would ensure HVAC technicians were trained to the highest criterion. To earn NATE certification, participants must pass both a Core exam and a Specialty exam in their field of knowledge. Today, certification by NATE is considered the gold standard in HVAC expertise.
Why NATE Certification Matters
Recent technological advancements in HVAC products and services makes it more important than ever for technicians to receive ongoing training in the field and in the classroom. Leading manufacturers are increasingly demanding a higher level of proficiency from HVAC providers as well. Studies show that NATE-certified technicians:
- Demonstrate greater value to customers through their ability to get the job done correctly the first time.
- Are professionals who are committed to providing quality service to members of their communities.
- Have the know-how to perform heating and cooling repairs on the latest and greatest indoor comfort solutions.
