What Does It Mean to Be a NATE-Certified Technician?

When it comes to the larger systems we count on for our modern way of life, such as vehicles, plumbing systems, and heating and air conditioning equipment, most homeowners don’t have the expertise to attempt servicing the systems on their own. You want to hire the very best when it comes to keeping these important and often costly symptoms in good condition. And when it comes to your HVAC equipment, ensuring it’s in the very best condition means hiring NATE-certified technicians.

Rigorous Training and Testing

NATE (North American Technical Excellence) certified technicians are put through extensive training and testing to ensure that they are completely qualified to work on heaters and air conditioners. The testing includes a general test on HVAC equipment, as well as one or more specific tests that prove a technician has expertise in a particular area of the HVAC industry as well (such as heat pumps or hydronic heating equipment, for example).

Why should you care about this certification? A technician who is not NATE certified will still have some level of training, but it’s tough to say whether they are familiar with specific standards in heating and air conditioning. Air conditioning and heating equipment that is not properly installed or service can run up your bills or may even be a safety hazard in many cases. That’s why it’s so important to ask about NATE.

Expertise You Won’t Find Just Anywhere

It’s important to note that you cannot find this expertise from just any company. Only the top companies hire NATE-certified technicians and require them to continue training and to remain certified throughout their employment. Ask your air conditioning and heating technicians whether they have a current NATE certification if you want to feel confident that the job will be completed correctly with your safety in mind.
