We Are NATE Certified. Here’s Why it Matters

So you need your A/C repaired, and your out-of-work brother-in-law is handy with tools. If he fixes your unit, you can help him out financially while saving a few bucks for a rainy day. It sounds like the ideal situation, right?

Unfortunately, A/C repair doesn’t work that way. As handy as your brother-in-law, or some other unlicensed “contractor” might be, they don’t have the knowledge, tools or experience of a NATE certified HVAC technician.

HVAC technology has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years. Today’s systems are complex and require specialized training and expertise to install and maintain properly. Fortunately, the HVAC industry’s nonprofit NATE certification program makes it easy to identify the true professionals.

What is NATE Certification?

Founded in 1997, North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certifies the knowledge and skills of heating and cooling field technicians — the front-line for system installation and maintenance. To receive NATE Certification, technicians must pass a rigorous examination on HVAC theory and practice, then a second exam in an area of specialization. Technicians are required to complete a specified number of classroom hours of instruction during the 5-year term of their NATE certificate.

Scott’s Air is completely dedicated to the comfort of our customers. To fulfill that commitment, we make sure that our technicians are equipped with the best training possible. That is a NATE Certification.

What Do Our Technicians Learn When They Get NATE Certified?

Nate Certification isn’t merely a walk-through on installing an AC system or fixing a broken air handler. It is a comprehensive training course that addresses every potential service area that could come up in a service visit. The five tenets of NATE Certification are HVAC Fundamentals, Service, Installation, Electrical and Controls, and Comfort and Airflow.

How Does NATE Certification Benefit You?

Better HVAC System Performance

Purchasing the most efficient system on the market doesn’t guarantee efficient performance in the home. That’s where a qualified technician makes all the difference. With proper installation and regular maintenance by a NATE-Certified technician, your system is much more likely to live up to expectations.

The Job is Done Right on the First Try

Callbacks and warranty service are minimized when the work is done by trained technicians with specialized equipment.

Professional AC Advice You Can Count On

A NATE-Certified technician is current on the latest technology and equipped to advise you on the proper operation of your system for optimum performance and efficiency.

Peace of Mind

Heating equipment produces high temperatures and combustion by-products like dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) gas. Central air conditioners draw high voltage and utilize compressed refrigerants. For your family and home’s safety, these components should be installed and maintained by trained air conditioning professionals.

Go With NATE Certified Professionals

Scott’s Air is completely dedicated to the comfort of our customers. To fulfill that commitment, we make sure that our technicians are equipped with the best training possible. That is a NATE Certification. This way we know that when we send our technicians out into Central Florida homes, we are sending professionals who know how to fix any air conditioning issue.

I have always used Scott's because they are the best! This service was for an installation of a new unit. Craig, Dominic, Jessica, Desmond and Sybil were all great! There was a young man who came out to help with the thermostat setup, he was great too. Very nice experience

Oh my god what an amazing company! I literally called one hour ago and said that my thermostat wasn’t working and there was a knock on my door within the hour! They told us what to do to fix it therefore saving us a $600 bill. They came right away, none of that we can see you in 48 hour junk. Amazing.

They were able to provide me with same day service, friendly and very responsive. Also, I got 2 other quotes and the pricing was the most competitive.
So thankful and impressed! My dad returned home after having open heart surgery to a completely dead HVAC system in the middle of summer. Definitely not ideal. The repair was going to be pricey so he opted for a new unit. A crew came out on a Saturday and did a very clean and efficient install. Highly recommend this company!!!

Very professional, work very neat and cleaned up and removed stuff. Very impressed with all of the staff and the company.
Our AC decided to quit during one of the hottest heatwaves in years. We called Scott's and someone was at the house to give us a quote in 30 min. From the moment they answered our first phone call through the install everyone was amazing, professional and provided a quality product and excellent service. Craig, Jose, Dexter were awesome! One of the new guys brought us a portable unit at 9:30 PM on a Friday so we could sleep. We missed his name, but shout out to him as well (he likes to give high fives). Thanks Scott and team for everything. We highly recommend!!!

For the past week I've worked with Craig on getting estimates for a new A/C unit, and he has been great at answering my questions and addressing any concerns. Very responsive and knowledgeable, straight shooter and direct! I didn't have to deal with any up-selling like working with a used car salesman (I experienced that with other bigger local A/C companies providing quotes). For these qualities alone I would recommend Scott's A/C, even though I will disclose that we ultimately went with another quote from a family referral of an A/C company. Had that family referral not been apart of our consideration, we would definitely choose and recommend Scott's for new A/C installs and service!
Dan in sales, outstanding jobgoing over equipment and helping us make what was the best decisions for us on purchasing new a/cinstall, plus scheduling the next day!Boris and Justin were excellent with communications while install and after! very clean, professional taking old out and installing new!ty
We can't thank Scott's enough. We came home to a air conditioner barely limping along. I called Scott's first thing in the morning and they had a technician out that day. Unfortunately our system could not be saved. The salesman Craig came out that day as well and quoted a new system. Since it was a Friday we could not get the system installed until Tuesday. Scott's provided us with a portable system which definitely helped during the grueling heat wave in Central Florida. Tuesday came, the installers showed up on time and did an awesome installation job. Cleaned everything up and went on their way. Everyone was pleasant, professional and great to work with! Thank You Scott's Heating & Cooling!

Always happy with their response time. Issue started last night causing our A/C unit to shut down. Made a call to Scott's Heating and Air in the morning and a tech was here by 10:45am. Tyrie, the tech, is awesome. He quickly took care of the problem and had us up and running in no time at all. He is knowledgeable and professional and did a great job.
Perfect company to do business with. Professional and courteous in all phases of project.

Excellent response and service. After 25 years of being serviced by a competitor I decided to change companies. AC was out and in need of replacement. Within 24 hours we had the sales rep here and new unit going in for a reasonable expense. No upselling, phony money savings, or timeshare presentations- just a new system without being targeted and pressured into pricey newer technology that will also become obsolete and non reparable every system cycle. I’m recommending to everyone looking for a new provider
