As Nashville, Tenn., area homeowners start to dry out from last week’s record floods, one wholesaler is telling them to look for the NATE logo.
If their water-damaged
air conditioner needs to be serviced or replaced, its best to hire a contractor
that is certified by the North
American Technician Excellence program, said Clay Blevins, CEO of Comfort
Supply LLC, a Ruud HVAC equipment and supplies wholesaler based in Nashville.
contractor with NATE certification means that the person installing your new
HVAC system has passed a series of tests and demonstrated a considerable amount
of knowledge about his field,” Blevins said. “That way you know you’re dealing
with a professional who not only takes pride in his work, but has the
experience to do a proper installation, complete with all the necessary permits
offers contractors NATE testing.
“We’re one of the
few wholesalers who can offer this service. We do it because we want to promote
professionalism and integrity in our industry,” Blevins said. “When homeowners
see a NATE certification patch on their installer’s uniform, they should
understand what that means for their comfort and safety.”
