The air conditioning and heating systems in your Florida home are not only important to your health and your comfort, but they also represent a significant investment. To protect that investment, it’s critical that repairs and maintenance be done only by professionals, such as NATE-certified technicians from a quality HVAC service. As a consumer, the benefits of NATE certification are extensive.
What Is NATE?
NATE, the North American Technical Excellence organization, is an association of HVAC industry professionals that includes technicians, service providers, equipment manufacturers, industry associations, and government agencies, such as the EPA. It provides education and certification services for HVAC technicians, and it helps to create relevant standards for the industry.
Benefits of NATE Certification
Technicians that are NATE certified have received thorough training on all types of HVAC equipment, including air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces and boilers, and have demonstrated that knowledge and experience through an exhaustive testing and certification process.
This ensures that each technician can properly size and install a system using the applicable Manual J procedures and perform all routine maintenance on that system, including filter changes, cleaning the coils, adjusting fan belts, checking the electrical system, and inspecting heat exchangers according to the manufacturer’s recommended intervals and procedures. This protects the system’s warranty and keeps it running properly and efficiently.
The technician will also be able to perform any required repairs, including warranty work, and offer advice and knowledge about the system. NATE-certified technicians have all the knowledge and experience necessary to care for your system properly, extending its lifespan, preventing major system problems, and protecting its warranty. They represent the best technicians in the industry, and HVAC service companies that employ NATE-certified technicians demonstrate a commitment to high-quality, professional customer service.
