Top Benefits of Hiring a NATE-Certified HVAC Technician

Given how important your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning are to your health and comfort, selecting a NATE-certified HVAC technician is quite an essential task. Just as there are distinctions in other professions that require a good deal of knowledge, expertise and experience, so are there in the HVAC industry.

HVAC technicians and contractors who have NATE-certification have achieved a high level of knowledge and competeTop Benefits of Hiring a NATE-Certified HVAC Techniciannce in this complicated field. NATE (North American Technician Excellence) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to identify the best in the field through rigorous testing and continued education programs.

The many benefits of hiring a NATE-certified HVAC technician include:

  • A contractor and technician will help you select the best HVAC system for your home and execute its installation following the most energy efficient guidelines. Not only will your equipment perform better each time it runs, it will also save you more money on energy costs over its lifetime.
  • One of NATE’s partners is the U.S. EPA, which is charged with protecting the environment. HVAC equipment uses the most energy of any appliance in your home, and the EPA has a core commitment in reducing environmental stress. An HVAC technician who knows how to install and maintain HVAC systems to maximize efficiency and durability can help protect the environment by lowering energy consumption, which is also good for your budget.
  • Performing a repair or installation right the first time is the hallmark of NATE-certified contractors and technicians. They have the lowest incidence of call-backs in the field, since they possess in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of systems and brands.
  • Each NATE-certified technician has to renew their certificate every two years by taking a qualifying exam. This way, he or she stays up-to-date in this increasingly complicated and fast changing field.
