You probably do some research before hiring a mechanic to fix your car. Do you do the same when you look for an HVAC contractor? If not, you should. Your heating and cooling equipment is a significant investment that should be protected. When you hire a NATE-certified technician, you know you're hiring something with the skills and expertise to help keep your heating and cooling system operating effectively and efficiently.
The North American Technician Excellence organization is the premier certifying organization for the HVAC industry. Technicians who achieve NATE certification have passed rigorous testing.
Among the benefits of working with a NATE-certified technician:
- Energy efficiency. Armed with knowledge of state-of-the-art technology and the most effective energy-saving techniques, NATE-certified technicians often can reduce or eliminate waste in your HVAC system.
- Lower costs. Those efficiency improvements, of course, mean less energy consumption -- and smaller utility bills.
- Fewer callbacks. Expert training means the job gets done right the first time.
- Excellent service. Comprehensive and ongoing training ensures that your technician is ready to tackle almost any situation. No matter what heating and cooling problems you are facing, a qualified technician should be able to address them.
Not every contractor works with certified technicians. Look for the NATE seal, or simply ask. While you are researching contractors, also ask whether they are Energy Star partners and which other HVAC organizations they belong to. Request testimonials and customer references. And honors and awards are also an indicator of contractor credibility.
The HVAC technicians at JonLe Heating & Cooling are proud to be highly trained and certified. Contact us by phone or online to experience the NATE difference.
