Need A Contractor? You Can’t Lose When You Go With NATE
When you need a contractor, always be sure to turn to NATE. NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, is an organization founded in 1997 that tests and certifies technicians in four categories of expertise: heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. Rigorous testing includes 21 specialties within these categories, so consumers who use a NATE-certified contractor can be assured that their project is in the hands of a qualified professional.
Testing is carefully structured to evaluate situations that 80 percent of all technicians are highly likely to encounter each year. Industry experts serve on the technical committee, which develops and monitors the Knowledge Areas of Technician Expertise.
In a poll of customers who chose NATE-certified technicians, a whopping 84 percent said they would choose the same contractor again. Other benefits of using a NATE-certified contractor:
- Faster, more efficient service
- Extreme satisfaction with system installation and repairs
- Jobs performed correctly the first time, with lower callback rates (NATE-certified techs have 12.9 percent fewer callbacks)
- Fewer warranty returns
- Quieter-running systems
- More cost-effective systems, resulting in lower utility bills
Be aware that companies can carry licensing and accreditation without their individual technicians having their certifications. That’s why NATE recommends having your work done by a company where at least 50 percent of its technicians are certified.
