North American Technician Excellence is the single largest HVAC-related certification organization in the United States. This nonprofit organization furthers the legitimacy of the HVAC industry in Tubac, AZ, and across the country. Hiring NATE-certified technicians isn’t just good for HVAC companies — it’s also good for you. Here are four reasons why.
1. NATE Is the American HVAC Industry’s Only Certification Organization
Many industries in the United States, not to mention worldwide, have two or more certification organizations. North American Technician Excellence is the only nationally recognized HVAC certification organization. By trusting an HVAC company with NATE-certified technicians, you can rest assured that your provider means business and strives to offer outstanding service.
2. Lower Likelihood of Voided Warranties
Although warranties are nice to have, you’d rather not have to use them. If a manufacturer has denied you warranty coverage before, you know that manufacturers require you to obey a laundry list of rules and terms.
HVAC systems cost thousands of dollars, so HVAC equipment manufacturers’ warranties have extensive terms and conditions to protect themselves from unworthy warranty redemptions. As you might imagine, one of the most common reasons for voiding HVAC warranties is allowing someone who isn’t NATE-certified to maintain HVAC equipment.
3. NATE Offers More Than a Dozen Service Specialties
When it comes to HVAC service, everyone wants a highly skilled HVAC technician on their side. Of course, you might not need a specialist the next time you experience an HVAC problem. If you are dealing with a super-specific issue, however, knowing that NATE offers 13 different service specialties is comforting.
4. NATE-Certified Technicians Understand Intermediate-Level Construction
As trades, many differences exist between HVAC service and construction. While construction workers don’t need to know anything about HVAC, capable HVAC technicians must have a solid foundation in construction.
During NATE certification, technicians must prove their working knowledge of basic and intermediate construction. You can rest assured that the HVAC-certified technician you hire won’t have to call in a builder to remedy HVAC-related issues.
