Heating and Cooling Companies Should Get Installation Permits

When investing in a furnace, air conditioner, water heater, etc., you may sometimes wonder where the price came from. Well, there’s the unit cost and the labor cost, but you may not have realized that usually, the price also includes the cost of a city permit authorizing the contractor to perform the installation.

It is necessary to have a city permit for this type of work, and it is to your advantage that the company has one. Why? Because a city permit ensures that the city will inspect the work and that it will all be done correctly and up to code.

A reputable heating and cooling company should always obtain these permits for the work performed on your home, but it is never a bad idea to ask your heating and cooling contractor about them. Unfortunately, it is essential to be aware of companies that may charge you for a permit but never actually pay for one from the city. You can find out if a permit has been pulled for the work on your home through the Freedom of Information Act- contact your city hall.

At FLAME Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, and Electrical, we ensure that the proper permits have been obtained. For more information about installation procedures or FLAME’s policies with city permits, contact FLAME!
