North American Technician Excellence has chosen Bay Area Air Conditioning & Heating as the third winner of its “Showcase Your NATE” sweepstakes.

The Crystal River, Fla.-based company submitted the winning entry, earning $1,000 in local advertising and/or NATE promotional materials.

To demonstrate the various ways they showcase their North American Technician Excellence-certified technicians, the Bay Area team submitted examples of their brochures, website, service vans and print ads that prominently feature NATE. One of their entries was randomly selected from the numerous submissions received from contractors throughout the country, including various examples of how each company highlights their NATE-certified technicians.

“Not only do we recognize the importance of hiring NATE certified technicians, but we also understand the importance of letting our customers know that our certified professionals are qualified to offer superior service,” said Dee Mahler-Castillo, marketing manager for Bay Area Air Conditioning & Heating. “Winning this prize money will allow us to further spread the word about our skilled, knowledgeable, NATE-certified team through local advertising.”
