When you call a professional technician into your Garden City home, you want to know that he or she knows how to properly install or service your HVAC equipment. One way to ensure you are getting knowledgeable service is to insist upon a contractor who employs technicians who have undergone NATE certification and its revised exam.
North American Technician Excellence certified technicians reflect the highest of standards when it comes to installing and servicing HVAC system equipment. This is because NATE certification reflects a dedication to continual testing and re-certification every five years in order to keep abreast of new developments in the heating, cooling and ventilation industry.
Recently, the NATE organization revised its exam to ensure that qualified technicians are able to provide customers around the country with the most pertinent service. The revised exam combines 75 questions regarding previous service installation tests into a sole core competency test.
In addition to this 75-question revised core exam, NATE expects technicians to test in at least one specialty area. This specialty exam has an additional 100 questions that allow technicians to demonstrate their professional expertise in areas that matter to you, such as air conditioning, electric and gas furnaces and heat pumps.
The NATE panel of experts believe that it is integral for every professional to keep up to date with his or her industry. Just as you would not want to go with a doctor who had not studied the last 30 year changes in his or her field, you do not want a technician that is not aware of recent technological advantages within the HVAC field. The revised NATE exam informs a technician of their areas of expertise and what areas need improvement, making it one of the most practical tests available in this industry.
