Why NATE Certification is so Important

NATE certificationWhether you are having a new air conditioner installed or you just need some routine maintenance, it is extremely important that the technician who comes to your home or office has NATE certification. This will be your guarantee that the person who works on your HVAC (heating, ventilation and cooling) system is a true professional who you can trust. At Metro Express Services, we only have NATE-certified technicians on our staff, so you can choose us with complete confidence.

Don’t Assume Anything

NATE (North American Technician Excellence) is a nationwide certification program. It is so highly thought of, in fact, that it is the only one that the entire HVAC industry accepts. You don’t have to have NATE certification in order to be an HVAC technician, but if you are, that signifies that you have the core set of competencies needed to offer professional, high-quality service. There are about 20,000 technicians across the nation who are NATE certified.

You may think that any technician who you call will have NATE certification, but that is far from the case. You need to check before you allow anyone to work on your HVAC system. If you don’t, you run the risk that the worker will make a mistake that could not only leave you feeling miserable, but could also cost a lot of money to fix.

How Meaningful is it?

NATE certification is extremely important. The program may be voluntary, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t rigorous. A lot of other so-called “certification programs” are incredibly easy to get – too easy, in fact. NATE is very hard to pass; that’s why most reputable HVAC service providers insist their technicians are certified before they allow them to work on customers’ heating and cooling systems.

When you choose Metro Express Service for your heating and cooling needs, you can rest assured you’ll be helped by a technician who has worked to earn his NATE certification. Don’t settle for anything less. Call us at 817-516-0700 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
