Looking For An HVAC Contractor? Ask If He Has NATE Certification

Looking For An HVAC Contractor? Ask If He Has NATE Certification

If you’re in need of an HVAC contractor to repair your current heating or air conditioning, or to install new equipment, you may be wondering what you can do to ensure the job will be done right for a fair price. Fortunately, the HVAC industry makes it easier than most to find a good contractor; all you need to do is start your search by looking for NATE certification.

“NATE” stands for “North American Technical Excellence.” It is an optional designation that only the best, most skilled and most knowledgeable HVAC professionals attain. While state and local licenses are required for all professionals, NATE certification ups the ante. In order to earn it, a contractor must pass a rigorous and difficult series of examinations that test their knowledge in advanced-level troubleshooting, installation, system design and system repair concepts.

What’s more is that NATE certification is an industry-wide standard, including not only contractors and repair technicians, but also equipment manufacturers and suppliers. These checks and balances are in place to ensure consumers who prefer premium products installed by professionals with elite-level skill can find what they’re looking for with a minimum of guesswork and hassle.
