What NATE Certification is and Why it Matters

November 08, 2016

Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Atlanta always tells you about how our team of experts are NATE-certified, and while it sounds comforting, what does it actually mean?

NATE stands 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 all people in the industry are required to be NATE-certified. The certification is voluntary and technicians can service heating, cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration equipment without being certified through NATE.

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