What is NATE certification? 

Here at Comfort Heating and Cooling, we’re proud that our HVAC technicians are NATE certified. What does this mean for you and how does it set us apart?

What is NATE certification?

North American Technician Excellence, or NATE, is a nonprofit certification organization for technicians in heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. Intended to validate the proficiency of service and installation technicians, NATE certification tests represent real-world knowledge of HVAC systems. Contractors, manufacturers, and many others in the industry have come together to partner with NATE and develop the best standards for technicians. NATE was founded in 1997 with a vision to be the leader in developing professional HVAC technicians. The tests to achieve certification are rigorous and knowledge-based in order to confirm a technician’s knowledge. NATE candidates can earn Installation and/or Service certification in one or more specialty areas such as heat pumps or air conditioning.

Why should you hire a NATE certified technician?

By passing a nationally recognized test, NATE-certified technicians have a proven knowledge of current heating and cooling systems. This test has been developed and is monitored by professionals in the HVAC industry. When you hire a NATE certified technician, you’ll be confident that the installation and/or service of your home’s equipment will be performed skillfully and at the highest level of quality. Plus, when your equipment is handled with such skill and care, it will run more efficiently and have a longer life.
