Things You Should Know About NATE Certification

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

You must be careful with the people you hire to do work on your home. Before agreeing to work with an HVAC contractor, you should do your research and check their certifications. One thing to look for is the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certification.

So what is NATE certification, and what does it mean to work with a certified technician? Keep on reading to find out.

What Is NATE?

NATE is an independent organization that certifies technicians with a knowledge-based test. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers are all part of the NATE coalition.

To qualify for this certification, technicians must score at least a 70 on the core and specialty parts of an installation or service test. The specialty portion of the test includes heat pump, air conditioning, air distribution and oil and gas heat. Keep in mind that not all technicians pass the test the first time, and those who do are the best when it comes to heating and air conditioning service.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a NATE Contractor?

NATE technicians are known for doing the job right the first time, which is one of the reasons they tend to remain in business longer. They also know how to correctly install different types of heating and cooling systems. When you choose a certified technician, you can expect minimal issues with your HVAC system, saving you on repair costs. Certified technicians provide fast, efficient service and ensure that your equipment is as efficient as possible.
