Why is NATE Certification Important for HVAC Contractors?

Home and business owners throughout Birmingham, AL depend on HVAC contractors for their indoor comfort needs. You count on your HVAC contractor to be knowledgeable of all HVAC equipment and provide correct and reliable installation and service of these solutions.

How can you be sure your HVAC contractor possesses the knowledge and skill he needs to care for your home comfort? NATE certification is one way an HVAC contractor can show customers like you that they are top industry professionals. Douglas Cooling & Heating employs NATE-certified HVAC contractors to provide our customers with peace of mind every job will be done the right way, the first time around.

What is NATE Certification?

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence. NATE is the largest independent certifying organization serving the U.S. HVAC industry. HVAC contractors earn NATE certification when they pass the organization’s rigorous, specialized testing. Additionally, they must maintain continuing education requirements.

An expert committee of contractors, manufacturers, educators and utility companies develop the NATE certification tests. NATE testing covers basics such as installation and service of heating, cooling, and indoor air quality systems. It also includes specialized testing and certification for specific HVAC systems and technology.

To uphold NATE certification, an HVAC contractor must complete continuous training. Because the HVAC industry is always changing, advancing technology delivers new systems and equipment which require specialized skills.

Continuous training is one method NATE uses. It ensures an HVAC contractor has the knowledge and skills to serve the changing landscape of the heating and cooling industry.

Why Choose A NATE-Certified HVAC Contractor?

Working with a NATE-certified HVAC contractor offers many advantages for home and business owners. When searching for new HVAC contractors, NATE is an important difference. NATE-certified HVAC contractors prove their knowledge of the sophisticated equipment they install and service each day.

Working with a NATE-certified HVAC contractor provides many benefits for homeowners, such as:
