Benefits of NATE Certification

Nationwide, there is a shortage of HVACR technicians. Worse, there is a more severe shortage of verifiably trained HVACR technicians. When it comes to homeowner health, safety, and comfort, being a certified HVAC technician (or having a certified HVAC technician on staff) can make all the difference.

In Summary

Certification is not just about contractor professionalism; it is about customer assurance. HVAC technicians who are NATE certified can legitimately claim that they have passed a stringent certification test that is national in scope.

Research from an American Home Comfort study indicates that 88% of homeowners believe having a certified technician repair or install their home comfort system is important. This demonstration of proficiency and excellence leads to increased customer service and business profitability.

In addition, 50% of consumers defer retrofits or new installations because they don't know which contractors have competent technicians. They would prefer to live in less-than-comfortable situations because they don't know which contractors they can trust to do the job properly.
