Whether it’s for a simple repair or a complete system replacement, everyone wants to make sure they hire the best HVAC contractor for the job. But how do you do that? The easiest way by far is to get to know NATE.
NATE, or North American Technician Excellence Inc., is the nation’s leading non-profit certification program for the HVAC and refrigeration industry. It is the only testing and certification program recognized nationwide, and is the gold standard by which HVAC professionals are measured.
Technicians who receive their NATE certification must pass rigorous tests that cover general HVAC issues such as installation, construction, safety and proper equipment. They also undergo extensive training and testing to specialize in a particular area of the HVAC industry, such as air conditioning, boiler systems or geothermal installations, to name just a few.
As you consider whom to hire, look for a company that employs technicians who hold a NATE certification specific to your home or business’s HVAC needs. Hiring a contractor with NATE-certified technicians on staff will ensure that you have highly trained professionals on the job. You’ll gain peace of mind that:
- Your heating and cooling system has been properly installed and maintained by an industry-certified technician.
- Your system is running at peak performance and efficiency.
- You’ve saved time and money by avoiding the problems that come with hiring an unqualified individual.
