Whether you want to install an air conditioner for your home or repair an office building’s heating system, you need technicians who have extensive expertise in their field. The North America Technician Excellence (NATE) certification is one way that technicians are able to demonstrate their mastery of essential skills, techniques and technologies. Every member of the Custom Aire team has achieved their NATE certification, which in turn will pass benefits on to you.

What Does a NATE Certification Mean?

NATE is the largest nonprofit certification organization for heating, air conditioning, ventilation and refrigerator technicians in the country. They offer several levels of certifications that showcase an employee’s skills and knowledge of the industry. The NATE certification is the highest achievement that a technician can reach. To earn this certification, the technician must have at least two years of experience in the field. They must pass a core test that covers basic segments of the job, including safety, tools, construction, science and more. After the core test is complete, a specialty test must also be passed that goes into greater depth within a specific aspect important to a technician’s performance. Passing these exams is quite an accomplishment, and shows that you are one of the best technicians amongst your peers.

The Benefits of Choosing NATE Certified Contractors

How does this certification translate to better service? Here are just a few benefits of choosing an HVAC company that employs NATE certified technicians.

  • Proper Installation: Make sure the job is done right the first time by using NATE certified contractors. Their in-depth knowledge will help ensure your system is correctly installed, saving you the need for further repairs and extra maintenance down the line.
  • Efficient Use: Properly installed equipment will limit the amount of energy used and maximize system performance, which can help lower costs on energy bills. This also helps extend the life of your unit, removing the need to replace it in the future.
  • Advanced Technical Knowledge: NATE certified technicians have proven that they know the ins and outs of whatever HVAC system they are working on. This allows them to diagnose any problems that you are experiencing and find a solution quickly. They can also pass this knowledge on to you with helpful tips that will enable you to get the most out of your unit without having to set up another appointment.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have some of the best people in the profession working on your equipment helps eliminate hassle and reduce stress. Fast service that is completed correctly the first time, extending the life of the system and removing the need for callbacks or returns will all limit the invasiveness of this process and keep your life as normal as possible.
