Your home comfort depends on how well the heating and cooling equipment is cared for, so it makes good sense to hire the best technicians in the HVAC industry for service and repairs. One way to know for sure that a technician is fully qualified is to look for NATE certification.
NATE: The Gold Standard for HVAC Service Providers
North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is the only non-profit testing and certification program of its kind in the United States. To qualify for NATE certification, technicians must pass a rigorous test that assesses their practical skills and general knowledge of safety protocols, tools, essential principles of heating and cooling, and the most up-to-date HVAC technology.
Technicians are also tested on a specialty of their choosing, such as gas heating, air conditioning, air distribution or heat pumps. Those who pass both tests are awarded certification. The organization’s stringent, comprehensive testing methods ensure that only the most qualified and dedicated technicians wear the NATE badge.
