There were over 260,000 HVAC technicians employed in the U.S. in 2012—but how many of them were NATE certified? You may not think working with a technician who is NATE certified is a big deal, but hiring one can save you time and a potential headache. Here’s a little bit about what the certification actually means and why it could benefit you:
What does NATE Certified Mean?
For starters, ‘NATE’ stands for North American Technician Excellence. A technician’s NATE certification essentially signifies that they possess both the knowledge and skills to handle a wide range of HVAC issues—whether it’s diagnostics, repairs, installations or another type of service. A NATE certified technician is trained to assess any problems within your system and is a much safer option than hiring a technician who isn’t certified or licensed.
Why Should I Hire a NATE Certified Technician?
There are a myriad of benefits to hiring a NATE certified technician. Besides ensuring your appliance is taken care of appropriately, you’ll benefit from the following:
- Your air conditioning system needs will be taken care of the right way. Let’s face it; there are lots of unlicensed contractors out there who don’t have the necessary experience. When you go with a NATE certified technician, you’re guaranteed a technician who has the appropriate training.
- Any repairs by a NATE certified technician will be completed in a timely manner. More than that, repairs and installations will be done right the first time so there will be no need for multiple visits or returns.
- Your AC system is guaranteed to operate as efficiently as possible for lots of time to come. This means you won’t have to waste your valuable time tending to AC repairs and you’ll keep your money in your pocket.
- You’ll have peace of mind! How great would it be if you knew that your AC was free of issues and running as efficiently as possible?
