00certifications ArtsyBee pixabay 1

When you need to get your HVAC system worked on, your primary concern should be getting the job done right. That can only happen if you hire a professional who has the core competencies required to handle HVAC systems. Make sure the contractor you hire has the following HVAC certifications.


First and foremost, you need to ensure that a contractor is properly licensed, according to your area’s guidelines. Licensing proves that the contractor is professionally trained, operates lawfully, and is compliant with state and local laws.

NATE Certification

NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certification is a prized certification for HVAC technicians and is recognized nationally. To get this certification, a technician must pass a rigorous, knowledge-based exam. HVAC technicians can get this certification in different specialty areas, such as air conditioning, air distribution, heat pumps, and gas heating. Make sure your contractor has NATE-certified technicians.

EPA 608 Certification

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) requires all people who access systems or containers that store refrigerant, such as the coolant in air conditioning systems, to have this certification. HVAC technicians can buy refrigerant legally only if they have this credential. They become certified after passing a written exam. Don’t hire a contractor who lacks this credential.

HVAC Excellence Certification

The Excellence certification is a respected certification in the HVAC industry. It has different levels of credentials, including the professional and master specialist levels. A contractor gains the professional-level certification if he has two years of experience and passes a comprehensive examination in the specialty areas like heat pump service and residential air conditioning. The master specialist certification requires three years of experience.

Your HVAC system has to be handled properly to give you optimum comfort and efficiency. Ensure it gets the right service by hiring a contractor with these HVAC certifications.
