What You Should Know Before Hiring A Heating And Cooling Contractor

While it’s easy to take for granted, your heating and cooling system is probably the hardest working group of appliances in your home. The process of controlling your home’s temperature, humidity levels and indoor air quality is complex and demanding.
NATE-techniciansProper system sizing, installation and regular service by a certified technician is essential to system longevity, energy efficient operation, your home comfort and even the safety of loved ones.

When you hire a contractor who employs NATE® certified technicians, you’ll save both time and money from the potential hazards of having an inexperienced technician install or service your home comfort system. Most homeowners are unaware of the benefits of using a certified technician until it’s too late.

Problems commonly associated with improper installation or service include:

•    Poor indoor air quality; a leading cause of asthma in children
•    Noisy operation
•    Uncomfortable humidity
•    Carbon monoxide poisoning
•    Risk of fire or explosion
•    Inefficient operation, which leads to higher utility bills and energy waste

According to the United States Department of Energy, improper installation can reduce system efficiency by up to 30%.

NATE-patchWith all of these potential issues, you can’t afford to trust just any technician. For superior installation and service of your heating, ventilation, air conditioning or refrigeration system, ask for a NATE certified technician.  NATE certified technicians are skilled professionals who have proven their knowledge in the HVACR industry, by passing rigorous and specialized NATE certification tests.

According to Consumer Reports, it’s a big plus if your technician is NATE certified.

You’ll benefit by:

•    Lower utility bills through proper installation and maintenance
•    Fewer callbacks
•    Equipment that runs at peak performance
•    Advice and knowledge of skilled, certified technicians
•    Greater peace of mind knowing that your heating and cooling system is properly cared for

NATE technicians are the finest in the business. So, in calling a contractor, ask if they use NATE certified technicians.
