When your HVAC system breaks down or simply needs its annual maintenance checkup, you want to know that the professionals you call are knowledgeable and have the credentials to do the job right. A technician with NATE certification is a sign that your local Durham, NC, heating and cooling company is the one to choose. Read on to learn what NATE certification is and the value of a NATE-certified technician.
What Is NATE Certification?
Technicians who undergo NATE certification take a test validating their working knowledge and competency of repairing, maintaining and installing HVAC systems. Once they pass the certification, they also take a specialty test in areas to find their strengths. There are many benefits of having a NATE-certified technician work on your HVAC system.
A NATE-certified technician can increase the efficiency of your HVAC system through maintenance, repairs and proper installation. This not only allows your system to run smoothly, but it also lowers utility bills.
NATE-certified technicians have a broad range of knowledge across many fields related to HVAC repair, installation and maintenance. They have real-world experience so they not only know what to do, but they also know how to do it.
Not only do technicians have to know how to repair and install HVAC systems, but they must also know HAZMAT procedures, governmental regulations, and other safe work practices. Not only will this safety training keep them safe on the job, but it will also help them pass the certification test as the safety part makes up a large portion of the test.
Tested on Knowledge
NATE-certified technicians have the broadest knowledge base that goes far beyond HVAC systems. They must know about basic construction, chimneys, electricity, air quality, roofing and other areas within their trade before they can pass their certification. With a NATE-certified technician, you know you’re in good hands.
