Selecting the right HVAC contractor for your house may seem a bit overwhelming. When you have work done, you want it done right without having to worry about having to call them back. Even if they offer to correct their mistakes for free, it’s still a hugely inconvenient hassle for you. With so many contractors around, you need a reliable way to separate the best from the under-qualified. To make sure your HVAC system is in good hands, insist that your HVAC technician is NATE certified.
NATE, which stands for North American technician excellence, is a widely recognized HVAC certification program — the only one recognized by the entire heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industry. There are other similar tests and training programs but none that match the high standards and reputation set by NATE.
To obtain their certification, technicians must pass tests covering a wide range of fields. There are the expected areas like heating and air conditioning as well as the more specific commercial refrigeration and energy efficiency ones. These tests require both actual intimate knowledge of the specialty as well as real world experience.
When talking with different contractors about their qualifications and why you should hire them, be sure to ask if their contractors are certified. Some contractors hire both certified and non-certified technicians, so make sure the one they send to your home has their certification.
Many NATE certified technicians can be identified by a patch on their uniform or a sticker on their service vehicle. These are brandished with pride as symbols that they are among the best in their field.
All certified technicians have to be re-certified every five years to ensure that they are familiar with current practices and trends so that they can offer the very best solutions to their customers.
