What is the HTA?

The Home Technology Association Certification system is the first and only industry standard of excellence for home technology installation companies. In an industry that has no barriers to entry, the HTA has created a rigorous set of standards for home technology companies to adhere to. The firms that meet the 60+ points of evaluation criteria are granted certification status.

Why is this important?

It is important that there is regulation in any industry and for the audio video world this wasn't the case until recently. With the HTA, clients can now see if the companies they are looking at are legitimate, established companies that have experience and will live up to the expectations they promise. Without regulations and standards there is no way to know if the company you are contacting is a one man show working out of his own van or a 10+ person company with their own showroom. Anyone can create an impressive website full of stock images to make their business look established and themselves appear competent, but with the help of the HTA certifications any client would be able to tell if the business was credible or not.
