Hiring the right technician is essential to the efficiency and effectiveness of your HVAC system. Quality cooling and heating service also mean longer equipment lifespan. It will also give you peace of mind knowing that your family will stay comfortable throughout the year. Keep in mind that heating and cooling systems don’t just improve comfort but also indoor air quality.
When you work with a North American Technician Excellence (NATE)-certified technician, you can rest assured your system is in good hands. Here’s what you need to know about NATE certification.
NATE is an independent organization that certifies installation or service technicians through a knowledge-based test. Technicians must pass core and specialty parts of the test with a score of at least 70. Specialties include heat pump, air conditioning, air distribution, oil heat and gas heat. It may help to know that the test is difficult and not everyone passes the first time. Only professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in heating and cooling systems can obtain this certification.
Why Hire a NATE-Certified Technician?
You can count on quality HVAC maintenance and installation services from a NATE-certified contractor. Poorly installed or maintained systems need to work harder to keep your home comfortable, resulting in higher energy costs.
Also, expect fewer callbacks and warranty returns as well as fast, efficient service. A NATE-certified technician will make sure that your equipment runs at optimum efficiency. Since they are highly-skilled and experienced, you can also ask them for advice on how you can care for your HVAC system and operate it properly.
