When there’s a problem with your commercial HVAC system, you don’t want to hire just any technician to come in and fix, or attempt to fix, the problem. If your business has a problem with its commercial HVAC system, you want to hire an expert, a NATE-certified HVAC repairman. A NATE-certified repairman has all the knowledge and skills you need to efficiently and correctly fix the commercial HVAC system at your Clayton, North Carolina, office.


A NATE-certified technician is an HVAC repairman who has passed the testing process for the North American Technician Excellence test. Once a repairman has received his NATE-certification, there’s periodic retesting to make sure his knowledge is current.

NATE certification requires the technician to pass a general knowledge test and a specialization test. A technician chooses one of these ten specialization areas:

  • air conditioning
  • air distribution
  • gas heating
  • heat pumps
  • oil heating
  • hydronic gas
  • hydronic oil
  • light commercial refrigeration
  • commercial refrigeration
  • HVAC efficiency analysis

Some NATE-certified technicians are certified in more than one specialty.

Peace of Mind

The major benefit of hiring a NATE-certified HVAC technician is peace of mind. You can feel comfortable that they’re knowledgeable about their field, aware of current repair best practices, and efficient in diagnosing problems. To double check your technician’s certification, ask to see his NATE-certification card or look up their NATE ID number online.

Technical Knowledge

You can’t be certain that a non-NATE-certified technician has the technical knowledge necessary to make repairs to your HVAC system. Because of the NATE-certification process, certified technicians are tested to make sure they have the knowledge needed to do their jobs well.

Increased Efficiency

Proper maintenance, repairs and installation of a commercial HVAC system can make the system run more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills. A NATE-certified technician has the skills and knowledge to work with HVAC systems to ensure things are properly completed.
