Most heating system problems can be avoided with regular maintenance. Over time, the system will be subject to a lot of heavy use. As that heavy use adds up, parts will wear out, ducts will get clogged, and the system will wear down.
At that time, there may be a number of warning signs that tell you it’s time to have your heating system looked at. To start with, listen for noises you have not heard before. Clanging, pinging, or grinding noises coming from your vents or your basement are sure signs of a problem that may require repair. Even if nothing is wrong, it’s best to have a trained professional take a look when your heating system starts to make unfamiliar sounds.
Another problem you’ll notice is a sharp spike in heating costs. If your system grows inefficient or is pouring heat into the cold air outside, you may have a problem that needs to be addressed. If you notice that heat is not reaching certain rooms, you also may need to have repairs done.
Leaking ductwork is a common heating system problem and can be an easy fix if caught early enough. So, whenever you notice a loss of heat, a drop off in efficiency or unfamiliar noises rising from the depths of your home, give the Pittsburgh area heater experts at Boehmer a call. It may just be time to have someone take a peek at your heating system and you’ll find our service second to none.
What is NATE?
NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, and it's the only nationwide certification program accepted by the entire heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) industry – contractors, manufacturers, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), and technicians themselves.
Are all HVACR technicians certified by NATE?
NATE is a voluntary certification program designed to ensure that qualifying technicians have a core set of competencies and can be trusted by the consumers who hire them. NATE is the culmination of several years’ worth of work by ACCA and other industry organizations to establish one single, nationwide certification.
Over the past few years, NATE has grown considerably. More than 20,000 technicians have been NATE-certified and the list continues to grow. With a strong endorsement from the leading manufacturers of HVACR equipment, NATE certification is the standard by which all technicians should be judged.
Don't you want third-party reassurance that the technician in your home is a capable, qualified individual?
Nearly 90 percent of consumers do. Ask your contractor if he or she employs NATE-certified technicians, and request that only NATE-certified technicians service your system. Some contractors choose to show off their NATE-certified status in ACCA's online Contractor Locator, and others do not. Be sure to ask.
Is the NATE certification really meaningful?
Yes! The NATE certification is rigorous and voluntary. There are other third-party certification programs out there, but they have suspiciously high "pass" rates. NATE has the lowest pass rate and is the only nationwide certification program endorsed by the HVACR industry across all levels. Technicians, contractors, manufacturers, utilities, educators, wholesalers, and leading industry trade associations support NATE, and industry organizations such as ACCA have helped develop the tests to ensure they maintain high professional standards.
In short ... ask for NATE-certified technicians.
