Why The NATE And RSES Seals Matter When You’re Looking For An HVAC-System Contractor

When you hire an HVAC contractor for your job, you want to be certain that company and its employees know what they’re doing. One reliable indicator of dedication to industry knowledge and standards is the company’s membership and participation in professional industry groups and credential-granting organizations such as NATE and RSES. When an HVAC company displays the seals of these two organizations, you can be assured that its technicians are well trained and certified to industry HVAC standards.

NATE (North American Technician Excellence)

NATE is a leading certification agency for technicians, service personnel and installers throughout the heating, ventilation, air condition and refrigeration industries. NATE is recognized throughout the entire HVAC industry as a reliable and accepted source of testing and certification for experienced HVAC technicians.

NATE-certified technicians must demonstrate in-depth technical knowledge and practical ability by passing comprehensive industry-specific tests. They typically specialize in areas such as air conditioning, oil and gas furnaces, HVAC efficiency, heat pumps, and commercial refrigeration. NATE-certified professionals are well trained in installation and service.

RSES (Refrigeration Service Engineers Society)
RSES is a training and education organization serving technical professionals in the HVAC industry. In association with NATE, RSES offers the rigorous technical training that HVAC professionals need to gain NATE certification. Through eLearning courses, seminars, workshops, local trainings, reference publications, interactive CD-ROMs and self-study courses, RSES offers thorough training in areas such as electricity, air conditioning, heating, controls, heat pumps and HVAC safety.

RSES also offers its own certification course through the RSES Certificate Member (CM) examination. CM levels are based on the type and number of certifying exams passed in areas covering comprehensive HVAC knowledge.
