Cincinnati's Nelson Comfort | NATE Certified

Inevitably, homeowners in the Cincinnati area will eventually need repairs to their heating and cooling systems. If it happens to be you, do you know who to call? To best protect your system and provide you with the most value, choose an HVAC company that employs NATE-certified technicians.

AtNelson Comfort, we pride ourselves on the fact that our HVAC technicians are NATE certified. Within their first year of employment with our company, every technician must pass NATE’s testing curriculum. So, what is NATE-certified and what does it mean for you?

What is NATE?

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence. NATE is an independent organization which provides knowledge-based testing and certification of technicians and installers working in the HVAC industry.

In order to become NATE-certified, technicians must pass rigorous exams to validate their knowledge and expertise of industry standards, HVAC systems and equipment, as well as customer service. NATE-certified technicians recertify every two years through retesting and continuing education in their specialties.

HVAC technicians with NATE certification are the best in the industry. They have committed themselves to gaining the knowledge and experience necessary to perform at an elite level. NATE certification means a heating and air conditioning technician has proven their knowledge of the equipment, technology, and techniques utilized in the HVAC industry.

Why Hire a NATE-Certified Technician?

For homeowners in the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas, there are many benefits to choosing an HVAC company that employs NATE-certified technicians. These benefits include:

Quality Installation

Purchasing a new heating or cooling system is an expensive investment for any homeowner. Even the best equipment will not perform properly if the installation is botched. NATE-certified technicians possess the knowledge, expertise, and skill to perform accurate and efficient installations for all heating and cooling systems. When your installation is performed by a NATE-certified HVAC technician, you can rest assured that your HVAC system will perform at peak energy-efficiency and offer excellent performance.

Complete Maintenance

NATE-certified technicians provide extremely thorough inspections and tune-ups during your seasonal maintenance visits. They know exactly what to look for and what maintenance your HVAC system requires to improve performance and efficiency. Maintenance performed by a NATE-certified technician will help you avoid repairs.

Fast and Efficient System Repairs

Should your HVAC system require a repair, a NATE-certified technician can quickly and accurately diagnose your system and perform needed repairs, getting your HVAC system back up and running sooner. NATE-certified technicians are familiar with common system issues and can perform accurate repairs while minimizing delays.

Fewer Return Visits

NATE-certified technicians are trained to do their work properly the first time, meaning less wasted time and money for you. NATE-certified technicians have a callback-free performance rate of 74 percent, while uncertified techs offer only 68 percent.

A Wealth of Knowledge

NATE-certified technicians know their HVAC. If you have questions about cutting your heating and cooling bills, solving indoor air quality problems, or anything else HVAC-related, your NATE-certified technician will be able to provide you with valuable advice to help you make the most of your home’s HVAC system.
