When you’re having issues with your home’s heating and cooling equipment, do you know who to contact? If you’re like many San Antonio area homeowners, this might not be an easy question to answer. The most important thing to remember in the beginning is to limit your hiring to professional HVAC technicians who have been NATE certified. This will ensure that your home’s equipment is treated with the utmost professionalism.
An Explanation of NATE
For those who aren’t aware, NATE (North American Technician Excellence) was created in 1997 as a way to develop the best HVAC professionals in the industry. As it stands now, NATE is the biggest non-profit entity in the U.S. that certifies contractors for superior service in the categories of air conditioning, heating, ventilation, and refrigeration. For a technician who would like to be NATE certified, he or she must submit to rigorous training and testing that ensures the most comprehensive knowledge of their profession. Certification can be completed in a number of categories, and a single technician can go through training and testing for more than one category, if he or she wishes.
The Power of NATE
When you hire a technician that has been NATE certified, you’re enlisting the service of a person who has been deemed a true expert in their field. One of the biggest problems facing homeowners when it comes to the service and repair of heating and cooling equipment is that return visits for the same issue are common. Thanks to NATE certification, you can be sure that the technician will fix your equipment correctly the first time. And because certification must be redone every five years to remain current, you’ll know that the technician servicing your equipment is up-to-date on the newest techniques and technology. All of this adds up to the best service around.
