What Does It Mean To Be NATE Certified?
When the time comes to repair your HVAC system, you will only want to use the best in the industry. Determining which company or technician to use can be a painful experience if you do not know what constitutes exceptional quality. But over 20 years ago, several leaders got together with the sole purpose of enhancing the HVAC industry. Their focus was to help the consumer to be able to identify quality and service. And what was developed has become known as the North American Technician Excellence (NATE).
NATE was the solution to the problem of callbacks and extra costs associated with repeated visits by technicians. It was the answer for manufacturers, as they would battle returns, and they were getting returns for equipment that had nothing wrong with it. They were also suffering from loss of materials and time because of the way things were handled on the frontlines.
It did not take long for the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) to catch onto the importance of NATE and begin to solidify their certification testing all under the NATE family. As time moved forward, more groups joined until NATE became the industry standard for certification.
NATE has several places that have come under the family, which includes:
- Air Conditioning Contractors of America
- Refrigeration Service Engineers Society
