The NATE-Certification Advantage Published on March 20, 2018 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning takes pride in sending NATE-Certified technicians into customers’ homes throughout North America every day. While this distinction of being Nate-Certified definitely sounds reassuring, what does it actually mean? NATE, an abbreviation for North American Technician Excellence, is the nation’s largest non-profit certification organization for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. NATE is the certification organization that was established by and has been accepted by the entire HVACR industry for nearly 20 years. However, not all technicians in the industry are necessarily NATE-Certified. The certification is non-mandatory and technicians can service heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration systems without being NATE-Certified. It’s important to Service Experts that our team is NATE-Certified to make sure we are placing the most skilled technicians into our customers’ homes. To make sure technicians meet these benchmarks, the NATE-Certification exams confirm real-world working knowledge of HVAC and refrigeration systems for technicians. The assessments are knowledge-based exams that measure the technician’s understanding of these rules. Considering Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning focuses primarily on the HVAC side of NATE-Certification, our technicians attain their designations in these areas. However, NATE assessment candidates may obtain certification in multiple areas: Air Conditioning Air Distribution Gas Heating Oil Heating Heat Pumps Hydronic Gas (service only) Hydronics Oil (service only) Light Commercial Refrigeration (service only) Commercial Refrigeration (service only) Ground Source Heat Pump Loop Installer Senior HVAC Efficiency Analyst You can be confident that the technicians at Service Experts are highly qualified and professional and will do the job the proper way from the start.
