How do you know if a HVAC contractor has a license?

A very intelligent home improvement is to replace your air conditioning system. If your system is not that old, or you are just not ready to bite the bullet, at least consider regular maintenance. Keeping your air conditioning system operating smoothly and efficiently helps you save energy while also reducing your electric bill.

When it is time to hire a certified HVAC company for maintenance or new installation you need to choose the right contractor.

One of the things you should always do is make sure the contractor is properly licensed.

The easiest way is to visit http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr and click the “verify a license” button on the top menu. Then you will be able to search by contractor name, license number, city and state, or license type.  This will also give you the Licensure Date. Make sure you check this date with how many years the contractor claims to be in business. If there is a discrepancy here it should raise a red flag.

Another great resource is http://www.sunbiz.org/ where you can search corporation records.

Just a little bit of research can help prevent you from accidentally hiring a bad HVAC tech that could possibly cause you much frustration and create expensive repair bills.

    I don’t usually say this, although this blog and website is outstanding. I have been browsing Yahoo and Google all day for a respectable post on the toxic dump of duplicated and thieved information that the Web has become and then I finally come to this, this website is the breath of refreshing air that I needed this morning. I am going to look into getting some information for my business. Do you mind if I use some of your content?
