NATE is more than an acronym. It’s a measure of quality and expertise. North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is a nonprofit industry group founded in 1997. Over the past few decades, it has become the leading testing service for HVAC contractors in California. Today, there are over 30,000 NATE-certified professionals across the United States, and we’re proud that ours are among them. Here’s why you should work with a NATE-certified contractor:
Firstly, NATE-certified service technicians have 12.9 percent fewer callbacks related to their HVAC services. In addition to avoiding repeat calls, you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing that your service technician will complete the job efficiently and accurately.
p>Accredited contractors have 25 percent more experience. That’s one reason they pursue these qualifications. NATE-certified service technicians have 5.9 years of experience compared to 4.7 years for non-certified service technicians. There are also continuing education requirements.
Installation Best Practices
Manufacturers experience 28 percent fewer warranty claims on systems installed by NATE-certified service technicians. According to Energy Star, new equipment installed properly lasts longer and operates up to 30 percent more efficiently.
Strong Manufacturer Relationships
Original equipment manufacturers, including Trane, encourage their factory-authorized dealers to earn advanced credentials. While NATE certifications aren’t an official requirement, they demonstrate the company offers superior service.
Rebates and Tax Credits
Finally, if you want to claim utility rebates or earn tax credits, you must select efficient products and have them installed by a qualified HVAC contractor. This ensures that the product lives up to its potential. As a result, it saves you more energy and money.
