Your NATE Technician: Certified By A Program That’s 15 Years Old And Going Strong

NATE certified technician terre haute indianaWhen your NATE technician knocks on your door, you know a trained HVAC pro is there to service your equipment. You shouldn’t settle for anything less. Today’s heating and cooling systems are not the place for on-the-job training at your expense. The technology is advanced and requires formal training and specialized equipment.  Your NATE technician has the expertise to do the job right, and he or she can prove it.

Since 1997, North American Technician Excellence (NATE) has tested and certified the skills of field technicians employed by reputable HVAC contractors. A non-profit program backed by the credibility of the HVAC industry, NATE certification requires technicians to pass a comprehensive examination on core theory and mechanical skills. In addition, candidates must pass a second test relating to one of the many specialties in the industry. Following certification, NATE technicians are required to stay up to date by completing a minimum requirement of 60 hours of classroom work.

In the past 15 years, NATE has certified more than 30,000 technicians, the front line of the HVAC industry. Here are a few reasons how this program benefits both the industry and the homeowner:

  • Manufacturers and distributors endorse the NATE program because it ensures correct, consistent installation, maintenance and repair of equipment by technicians with the expertise to adhere to manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Reputable, established contractors prefer NATE techs because they get the job done right the first time with few callbacks,  reducing expenses and increasing customer satisfaction.
  • Educators stand behind NATE training because the program has instituted a uniform curriculum and a consistent standard of procedures and practices.
  • Customers benefit from NATE certification because they can be confident their HVAC equipment is operating at maximum efficiency for both energy savings and home comfort. They know that all safety procedures are observed and the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty are fulfilled in all service procedures.

Established in 1922, Paitson Bros. Heating & Air Conditioning is the oldest heating and cooling sales and service provider in the Wabash Valley, and is a NATE Quality Circle contractor. Give us a call and let us dispatch our NATE technicians to serve all your HVAC needs.
