What NATE Certification is and Why it Matters

November 08, 2016

Comfortech Service Experts in Jackson always tells you about how our team of experts are NATE-certified, and while it sounds comforting, what does it truly mean?

NATE is an abbreviation for North American Technician Excellence and, as mentioned on their website, is the nation’s largest certification organization for HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) and refrigeration technicians. The organization was developed by and has been supported by the entire HVAC and refrigeration industry but not everyone in the industry is required to be certified by NATE. The certification is voluntary and technicians can service heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration equipment without being NATE-certified.

It’s important to Comfortech Service Experts that our experts are NATE-certified to be sure we are sending the most qualified and skilled technicians into your home. To make sure experts meet these standards, the NATE-certification tests validate real-world working knowledge of HVAC and refrigeration systems for technicians. The exams are knowledge-based assessments that assess the technician’s knowledge of these criteria.
