HVAC Certifications

Terry’s A/C & Heating dedicates considerable time in HVAC certifications and continuing education. We are committed to keeping up with the latest technology, innovations, and equipment to keep our customers and their families and coworkers comfortable indoors (especially if it is not so comfortable outdoors!).

It is our belief that a more highly trained technician can diagnose what is going on with your system more quickly and offer up solutions that save everyone time and money.

We spend 30-40 hours in continuing education each year, which is much longer
than the average HVAC company. The following are HVAC certifications and continuing education:

NATE Certification

Rob Terry and Kenny Langford have earned NATE certification (North American Technician Excellence) a voluntary credential that tests real-world working knowledge of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. Documented continuing education is required each year to re-certify. To earn the certification, contractors must pass a core exam and one specialty exam. Rob has passed the core exam and eight specialty exams, including: A/C Installation, A/C Service, Heat Pump Installation, Heat Pump Service; Gas Heating Installation, Gas Heating Service, Air Distribution Installation, and Air Distribution Service. Kenny has passed the core exam and two specialty exams, including: A/C Service and Heat Pump Service.

EPA Certification

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Clean Air Act requires HVAC contractors to pass an exam to earn Section 608 Certification which allows technicians to purchase, handle, and dispose of refrigerant used in maintaining air conditioning and heating systems.

Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer

We adhere to a rigorous set of national standards which requires extra certifications and regular continuing education on Carrier equipment and parts. This requires our technicians to travel to the Carrier factory to learn more and stay on top of the best ways to maintain, repair, and install the best comfort solutions for your home or office. Learn more about what it means to be called a Factory Authorized Dealer.

Terry’s A/C & Heating received the 2020 President’s Award from Carrier, one of the highest honors for its dealers. It is given to Carrier Factory Authorized Dealers who achieve excellence in product promotions and deliver superior customer satisfaction. Recipients of this award demonstrate the very best in operational excellence, business effectiveness and the delivery of cutting-edge technology to their customers.
