James and Charlie Bovard recently claimed $1,000 in local advertising and promotional materials for their business through the Showcase Your Nate sweepstakes. Bovard Heating & Cooling, a family-owned-and-operated company located in Altoona, Pa., was started by Glenn Bovard more than 45 years ago.

ARLINGTON, Va. — North American Technician Excellence (NATE) has selected the fourth and final winner in the “Showcase Your NATE” sweepstakes, which rewards contractors for promoting their NATE-certified technicians.

Bovard Heating & Cooling, from Altoona, Pa., earned $1,000 in local advertising and/or NATE promotional materials.

To demonstrate the various ways they showcase their NATE-certified technicians, the Bovard team submitted examples of their promotional brochures, informational videos, and print ads that prominently feature NATE. One of their entries was randomly selected from the numerous submissions received from contractors throughout the country, including various examples of how each company highlights their NATE-certified technicians.

“We pride ourselves on hiring NATE-certified technicians, as we know they provide superior service to our customers,” said Charlie Bovard, Bovard Heating & Cooling vice president and general manager. “We look forward to continuing to provide knowledgeable, quality service and to spread the word about the importance of NATE certification to our customers and local community.”
