The Importance of Getting a Permit When Hiring an HVAC Company

Did you know that it is against the law not to get a permit when replacing your air conditioner? It is also true that you as the consumer can also be held liable should you not get a permit and may even have to remove your equipment at your own expense.

Basically, permits are important, very important. They will also save you money in the long run on your electric bill. That is because by having a permit ensures that the system has been installed correctly and not using excess energy to operate. These permit inspections aren’t performed by the contractor you employed for the install but by the city of where you live.

When the city inspects your unit they will check for carbon monoxide hazards, electrical hazards and workmanship. All are important safety items for you and your family living in the home.

While the cost of a permit can be a few hundred dollars, it is well worth it, as you will not want safety issues in the future or legal ones.

To learn more on how the process works contact a representative at ASAP Heating and Air Conditioning. They will go through the entire process with you so everyone is on the same page and everything is correct.

Don’t try to cut corners. It will backfire on you and potentially cost you a lot of money.
