Why Is It Important To Be NATE Certified?

When searching for a HVAC technician be sure to pick one that is NATE-certified. A NATE-certified technician will offer a safe repair and installation for the HVAC equipment in your home or office.

What Does NATE Stand For?

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, a not-for-profit organization that provides training for the latest heating, cooling and air conditioning technology. It’s the only nationwide program accepted by the entire HVAC industry, including contractors and manufacturers.

Technicians who are NATE members must take periodic classes and be tested on their knowledge of HVAC topics in order to stay up to date on developments in the industry. NATE certification proves that technicians are experts in their chosen field. This program ensures that qualified technicians have a core set of competencies and can be trusted by those who hire them.

Why NATE Certification Is Important

Since technology is always changing, NATE membership requires that their technicians constantly be updating their HVAC skills. NATE-certified technicians can efficiently and properly install, repair, service and replace many different types of HVAC equipment. If equipment is not serviced or installed properly, systems may not operate effectively and could expose customers to dangerous situations. Improper service and installation can not only result in fire, smoke or poisoning but can also lead to higher energy consumption and more expensive bills.

Because of their extensive training and expert skill set, NATE technicians have the ability to understand and handle both newer and older HVAC equipment models.
