    2 Insanely Powerful Certifications You Need for a Successful HVAC Business

    Want to know how to improve your HVAC business? There are a multitude of success stories based on any number of factors, but if you really want to boost your business and create a success story for yourself, take a look at your certifications. Here are two insanely powerful certifications you need for a successful HVAC business:

    Certification #1: State Contractor's License and PSI Certification

    First and foremost, you and your technicians must hold a license and obtain certification through the state. PSI, an international company that creates exams for a number of industries, conducts these exams. They test for knowledge and competency on trade knowledge and industry practices. The PSI exam will test your knowledge in areas such as:

    • Insulation
    • Sound, vibration, and seismic control
    • Hangers and supports
    • Refrigerants
    • AC and heat pump systems
    • Chimneys, flues, and vents
    • Combustion
    • Ducts
    • Ventilation and exhaust
    • General safety

    Certification #2: NATE Certification

    The NATE certification, or the North American Technician Excellence certification, is for HVAC technicians. It carries national recognition. While you don't need the NATE certification to start your business or provide HVAC services, it is a feather in your cap when it comes to recognition in your field. NATE certification is a way to validate your knowledge in the field of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It's a sign to customers and potential customers that you are a leader in your field and have the knowledge and expertise to provide the service and product knowledge consumers need.

    Don't dismiss the right certifications as nice to have, when they can make or break the success of your business. For help with prepping for the PSI exam and other certification programs, contact the team at McCall's to find out more about how to improve your HVAC business.
