What benefits do your NEBB certification bring to your business?
Our NEBB certification ensures clients that we’ve performed our services utilizing rigid national standards.
It is more than “you know what you’re doing, the paper says so”, it’s a guarantee that we have balanced their
system(s) using nationally standardized methodology with calibrated instrumentation and that all data recorded
is accurate and unbiased. This has allowed our company to build wonderful business relationships
with clients that endure today and our goal is to build on that into the future.
Do your customers understand the importance and value of your NEBB certification?
Our clients know that when they hire Carter Air Balance they are getting tremendous value added to their
project. We provide total system balance, great client support services, and we work hard to ensure there
are no call-backs. Our NEBB certification is the “icing on the cake” for our clients, they understand that our
performance is highlighted by the NEBB procedural standards from start to finish on every project.
