Benefits of NADCA Membership
Discover NADCA Benefits
Many benefits come with NADCA membership. NADCA members have an advantage over nonmembers due to the Association’s many resources for marketing, public relations, education, training and much more. The following is a list of benefits available to NADCA members:
- Client Referrals
- Certification Discounts

Perhaps the most prominent tool for marketing members is NADCA’s Find a Professional directory. NADCA helps generate business for members through website referrals and listings that include how long a company has been a NADCA member and their certified personnel. The Association’s Headquarters also receives a steady stream of phone calls from consumers who are looking for HVAC maintenance professionals in their area. Whether members are aware of it or not, chances are that many new clients found out about them through the NADCA website or by calling NADCA.
NADCA and its certifications are listed in Masterspec and Speclink. For many commercial jobs, the requirements for HVAC cleaning and restoration call for proof of ASCS certification or NADCA membership. When contractors read these specifications, they are likely to contact NADCA in order to hire a member company in their area. NADCA’s recognition in these specifications directly correlates to revenue for our members who have received jobs as a result of Masterspec and Speclink.
Business owners and technicians are able to receive training from the comfort of their home or office through convenient online training and webinars. In addition, NADCA offers in-person training at both the Annual Meeting and Fall Technical Conference related to both industry and business topics and technician and advanced level tracks. Developing your company's personnel remains one of the best investments you can make, which is why NADCA offers the Ventilation Maintenance Technician (VMT) program. The VMT, an online training program geared toward new technicians, provides education on the most important aspects of the HVAC system cleaning. Members receive significant discounts on NADCA’s education and training.

Multiple Employer Plan (MEP) for 401k savings
An MEP is a retirement plan for businesses with a common interest, but ones that are not commonly owned or affiliated. The MEP sponsor (that’s NADCA) maintains the master contract for the retirement plan. Being part of an MEP allows you to offer retirement savings to your employees in a way that can also benefit your bottom line. An MEP can help business owners by giving their employees the opportunity to:
- Set aside tax-deferred income for retirement
- Reduce their immediate taxable income
- Qualify for any employer-matching contributions
- Make investing for their retirement automatic
- Learn about saving, investing, and budgeting for their retirement
