When dealing with your home’s heating and cooling it really is important to find a reputable company. Heating and cooling is an integral part of your family’s comfort and safety, and you want to be sure that it is done right. One way to determine a company’s reliability is by looking at their certifications. However, unless you know what all the acronyms and symbols for certifications stand for, you may feel very lost. Here are two things that are signs of a quality HVAC company:
NATE certified technicians
NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, is “…the leading non-profit certification program for technicians in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC/R) industry….” To become certified through NATE, technicians need to pass a difficult core and specialty exam. Looking for NATE certified technicians will ensure that the person working in your house is highly qualified. 90% of Flame’s technicians are certified through NATE.
Factory Authorized Dealer
Most heating and cooling companies sell only one or a few brands. Simply selling a brand does not make a company an authorized dealer. The brand company has to bestow that honor on the heating and cooling company, and it is typically received because the company has met high standards. For example, Flame is a Factory Authorized Bryant Dealer.
When looking for a heating and cooling company for your next job, keep your eye out for these two criteria. For more information, contact Flame!
