When you have work that needs to be done on your home, finding a reputable HVAC contractor is only part of the process. What you really need to do is search for technicians with NATE certification. By looking out for this, you can rest assured that the work is optimally performed every time.
What Is NATE Certification?
To understand the importance of certification, you must know what it actually stands for. NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, was established in 1997 as a way to identify the best HVAC professionals in the industry. NATE is made up of industry professionals who aren’t compensated for their work. This gives them no incentive to certify technicians except to make sure that the industry is being represented by the best they have to offer. In order to be certified, a technician must submit to both rigorous training and a grueling testing procedure. Only by displaying the utmost knowledge and professionalism will a technician be certified, and he or she can be certified in a number of speciality areas.
Why Is Certification Important?
We all want to get the best work that money can buy. After all, we’re talking about our home comfort level here, and what’s more important than that? Whether you need an HVAC professional to install equipment, repair a problem or conduct preventative maintenance, you want the best work to be performed every time. NATE certification ensures that the technician working on your heating and cooling equipment gets the job done correctly the first time and with a professional attitude every step of the way. Plus, since each technician must be certified again every five years, you’ll know that he or she is up-to-date on the most recent industry knowledge and advanced techniques.
