Not all HVAC Installers in NJ are Certified

If you are planning to have a new heating or cooling system installed in your home and haven’t decided on an HVAC contractor, you’re still weighing the options. Although reliability, references and price are highly important considerations, it’s important to understand that not all HVAC installers in NJ are certified, which provides certain benefits and protections for you.

To become certified, HVAC installers in NJ will attend schools that are accredited. This means that the school can provide the proper training that is defined by regulatory bodies. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be able to obtain their certification through testing.

Like other fields that require hands-on experience under the guidance of seasoned experts, these graduates work for contractors that have both the certifications and the years of experience to oversee the job. This arrangement which may last several years will provide the new installer with guidance and ensure that everything is done to the highest standard.

Beyond the simple certification, there are other certifications an HVAC contractor can earn as well. An HVAC Excellence certification can be issued to someone working at the master level; a NATE Certification (for North American Technical Excellence organization) shows that they have been approved by the largest certification body in the country.

Choosing a contractor who has been certified by one of the organizations we’ve mentioned above is always the best choice. When you’re looking for someone to install or repair your heating or air conditioning, you do not simply want to go with the lowest priced option. Choosing a contractor who is certified helps to ensure that your heating or cooling system is being repaired by someone who has already been through rigorous training to ensure they have the necessary skills to keep your HVAC system in tip-top shape.

HVAC installers in NJ that do not have the proper certification and level of experience can knowingly or unknowingly cut corners that result in poorly installed and maintained systems.

This can mean health, safety and of course cost challenges when it comes to repairs and eventual remediation of the original sub-par work.

Besides all of this, an unreliable HVAC system is extremely inefficient in its use of energy. This will drive up your utility bills and leave you spending much more money than you need to. In addition, a poorly installed system has environmental ramifications when your system does not use energy efficiently due to poor installation or poor system choice for the needs of the home.
