Why You Should Only Trust a NATE-Certified Technician With Your HVACPublished: September 21, 2017

A mother wouldn’t trust her sick child with the ice cream man who claims to have medical experience. Nor would you trust your next big project with the intern that hasn’t completed their undergraduate degree. So why would you trust HVAC maintenance with someone who claims that be a technician, but hasn’t been NATE certified to work on HVAC systems in Titusville, Florida?

Your HVAC does more than heat or cool your office, it also impacts health and productivity. By trusting only NATE-certified technicians with your commercial HVAC system, you’ll ensure comfort in your office and more money in your pocket. Here’s why you should only trust a NATE-certified tech with your HVAC system.

What Does NATE Certification Entail?

NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, is a non-profit organization dedicated to supplying the U.S. with qualified, able technicians. Getting certified by NATE is no walk in the park. In order to receive the prestigious certification, aspiring technicians must pass tests focused on specific areas of the field, such as heat pumps, air conditioning, and much more. Once technicians pass a written test, they must also pass a hands-on practical test.

However, NATE, as an organization, does not employ or supervise technicians they’ve certified. They simply supply the resources for qualification.

Why You Should Only Trust NATE-Certified Technicians

By putting technicians through extensive tests, NATE ensures that their technicians are qualified to handle every situation. When a component fails or your system is straining, immediate repair is necessary to reduce the chances of repairs becoming more costly. An unqualified technician’s attempt to solve the problem could exacerbate the issue and result in higher costs on your end.

However, repairs conducted by a NATE-certified technician are guaranteed to not only repair problems, but will also improve energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Once your tech completes repairs, you’ll also enjoy lower utility costs.

There are plenty of places in your budget that need more attention, so don’t lose money to unqualified technicians. To see how our NATE-certified technicians can improve your commercial HVAC, call Ellington Air Conditioning and Heating at (321) 248-4838.
