The Importance of NATE Certification

Comparing Austin-area air conditioning and heating service providers can be a daunting task. After all, everyone prides themselves on superior air conditioning service, unsurpassed quality, and a history of A/C excellence and reliability. Are there other differentiators to be looking for?

Actually, there are. In your journey along the Austin HVAC trail, you very well may have noticed the reoccurring presence of four familiar letters: N-A-T-E. They stand for “North American Technician Excellence,” and they’re an important qualifier of an air conditioning company’s commitment to excellence.

As the NATE website explains, “Founded in 1997, North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is the nation’s largest non-profit certification organization for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. Headquartered in Arlington, VA, NATE is the certification organization governed, owned, operated, developed and supported by the entire HVACR industry.”

NATE’s nationally recognized series of exams test a technician’s fundamental understanding of electricity and heat transfer, air conditioning, air distribution, gas heating, oil heating, and more.

What does this mean for you, the Austin A/C customer? Well, you can rest assured that your air conditioning or heating unit has been installed and serviced properly. Proper installation protects from defects due to installer error. A properly installed HVAC system runs more efficiently, fosters a comfortable home environment, and lasts longer, saving you time and money in the future.

Yeah, you could say that NATE certification is the most important protocol in the HVAC industry today. That’s why it’s important to us: just another validation of our commitment to keeping beautiful Austin just right!
