What is the NCI and How Can Their Training Benefit My Business
NCI is a trade association that provides training and certification for contractors in the HVAC industry. Their system performance training teaches contractors how to properly install and maintain HVAC systems. The training covers topics such as system design, ductwork, insulation, and air sealing. After completing the training, contractors can earn the NCI Certified System Performance Technician designation. This designation demonstrates to customers that the contractor has the knowledge and skills necessary to properly install and maintain their HVAC system. In addition, the NCI designation can help contractors increase their average sales ticket by demonstrating their expertise to potential customers.

Not Enough HVAC System Training in Trade Schools
System performance training helps contractors learn what they didn’t learn in trade schools. Instead of learning how to simply turn wrenches and install systems, they are taught to approach it differently. It teaches contractors how to take a holistic view of the systems they are installing, rather than just focusing on one element in isolation. This holistic approach allows contractors to install efficient HVAC systems. This not only keeps energy bills low for customers but also maintains comfortable indoor temperatures and reduces dust levels. In addition, it ensures that contractors are up-to-date on the latest technology and best practices, allowing them to provide the highest level of service possible. As a result, NCI’s training is essential for any contractor who wants to provide quality service and install efficient systems.
